Any artist or craftsperson whose work includes a substantial body of heraldry is eligible to apply for Craft Membership.
Prospective Craft Members are invited to submit a selection of their work for consideration by the Society's Appointments Board. This may be in photographic form. An applicant whose work is deemed to be of a sufficiently high standard is then invited to become a Craft Member of the Society of Heraldic Arts, may describe himself or herself as such and use the post-nomials SHA.
In the first instance, prospective applicants should contact:
Hon. Membership Secretary
Jane Tunesi of Liongam MSt, CILIP, Dip Gen, QG
53 Hitchin Street,
Baldock, Hertforshire SG7 6AQ
Phone: +44 (0)1462-89206 and +44 (0)7989 976394
Associate membership is open to those who aspire to Craft Membership and those who wish to support the work of the Society. Heralds and other officers of arms from the world's heraldic authorities are encouraged to join, either as Associate Members or as Craft Members if they are also artists producing work of a sufficiently high standard.
Application for Associate Membership should be made to the Hon. Membership Secretary as above.
A Faculty of Fellows was created in 2013. Fellowship (FSHA) is granted by the Society’s Appointments Board to Craft Members whose work is considered to be pre-eminent by their peers. Honorary Fellowship (Hon. FSHA) may be awarded at an Annual Meeting to any member in recognition of outstanding service to the Society.
