Artisan Information

Lathe WoodworkingWe are looking for artisans who would like to demonstrate their hand craft skills to the public. This will involve sitting at the festival working on a project of your own and explaining to the public what you are doing, the materials you use and answering their questions.  People who know the skill, time and artistry in handmade items, value and appreciate the work all the more. You will be able to promote your business and future sales events.   This is also an opportunity to connect with other artisans. You may bring examples of your work to display but there will be no sales of final product at the event.

We also ask that you provide some hands on activity related to your craft skill for the public to try. If you would rather, you could teach a beginner level class in your skill.  We will arrange the registration, cover the cost of materials and pay you as an instructor. We will promote you on our website and possibly other advertising materials. Contact us for the form regarding classes.

Before acceptance, we require photos and a brief description of your work. This is needed to promote your attendance at the festival.  We reserve the right to limit the number of artisans and in any particular craft category. 

How you can participate

We are looking for artisans to participate in any one (or multiple) activity.

  1. A Demonstration of your craft.
  2. A Beginner’s Class or classes (no more than 3 hours each)
