CALL FOR ARTISTS – Saltaire Makers Fair, September 14 & 15:
We are looking for contemporary craft designer-makers working in a wide range of disciplines to exhibit work over two days during the opening weekend of the Saltaire Festival (14 & 15 Sept), in gorgeous Victoria Hall, at the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Saltaire. We are looking to select and showcase high-quality, innovative work in ceramics, textiles, jewellery, glass, metal, artists’ books, paper, leather, wood, furniture, plastics, fashion textiles and accessories, printmaking and mixed media.
Held twice a year, our Makers Fairs have a growing reputation for providing a showcase for some of the best contemporary craft available for sale or commission in the north of England and, increasingly, further afield. Audiences will have the opportunity to see unique and original handmade products, buy directly from the artists and makers, and meet the creative talent behind the work. The venue, Victoria Hall in Saltaire, is both attractive and historically unique, a great setting for a contemporary craft fair, and we regularly see 1000 – 1500 visitors per day through the doors. The Fair will include artist demonstrations, a popular Art Tombola and there will be a pop-up cafe with delicious sweet and savoury snacks.
Deadline for applications: Sat 3 August
