Call for Applications: Make 2018 - Contemporary Crafts for Christmas

Exhibit at Devon Guild of Craftsmen 2018 -19

MAKE is our annual Christmas selling exhibition celebrating the diversity of contemporary craft.

The exhibition focuses on selling handmade, high quality craftsmanship; connecting makers with our Christmas customers. By highlighting one-off, unique pieces alongside small scale batch production we aim to offer a range of mediums and prices to suit all.

The exhibition is open to any UK-based craftsperson or designer-maker whose work fits these criteria. 

We are particularly looking for makers who produce exciting and contemporary work. 

The Christmas season is a key time for sales; during the run of MAKE 2017 over 16,000 people visited the exhibition, more than 14,000 visited online, and over £29,000 in sales were achieved.
