membership 2024

In 2016, the House of Upcycling was the very first organisation to offer professional upcyclers, artcyclers and furniture artists a platform that celebrated their work as well as providing bespoke business support. Today, with a decade's experience in every aspect of the artisans world - from paint to accounts, promotion to couriers - we continue to elevate the craft's standards and status and support our members, sharing a variety of opportunities that no other platform currently provides to its community.

As the UK's authority on professional upcycling for interiors, we represent the industry at its highest level with our members operating as masters of their craft. We have therefore decided for 2024 to offer just one level of membership.
