Saffron is a Bristol-based non-profit initiative aiming to provide opportunities and education for women and non-binary people looking to get into music tech.

Last week, Saffron announced the launch of their membership scheme Saffron Members. Available Patreon, there are three tiers of membership, priced at £5, £12 and £22 per month.

Perks for monthly membership include monthly online workshops offering community feedback on members’ tracks, discounts and offers from brands like Mixcloud, and one-to-one mentoring sessions with music industry professionals.

Subscriptions are available to buy individually or as part of a pay it forwards scheme, where you can opt to pay for the membership of someone who’s currently unable to afford one.

A number of free bursary subscriptions to Saffron Members have also been donated by Abbey Road Studios and Ableton for anyone unable to afford the cost of subscription.
