Opportunity: MAKE 2017 – submissions sought from Devon Guild of Craftsmen

MAKE 2017 – Contemporary Crafts for Christmas, is our annual Christmas selling exhibition in the Devon Guild’s large contemporary gallery space. It runs Saturday 18 November, 2017 – Monday 7 January, 2018.

This show celebrates the diversity of contemporary craft and will focus on selling handmade, high quality craftsmanship, highlighting one-off, unique pieces alongside small-scale batch production. The exhibition is open to any UK based contemporary craftsperson and designer-maker whose work fits these criteria. We are particularly looking for makers who produce exciting and contemporary work.

The Christmas period is a key time for sales; during the run of MAKE 2016 13,796 people visited the exhibition, approximately 14,600 visited online and over £24,000 in sales were achieved.
