Payment: instructors will be paid $300 to teach the workshop

Application Process: selected workshop instructors will be notified by May 31, 2017
 
3. APPLY TO GIVE A LIVE CRAFT DEMO
Further enhancing the connection between visitor and maker, CRAFTED 2017 will feature a live craft demonstration area. We are seeking six-to-eight artists to conduct demos over the course of the two-day event.

How to Apply: submit via email to crafted@wag.ca

Payment: artists will receive a $100 honorarium

Application: selected artists will be notified by May 31, 2017

Artists may apply to be a vendor, a workshop instructor, and a demonstration facilitator. Participating CRAFTED vendors are responsible for finding someone to mind their table while leading a workshop and/or giving a demonstration.

JURY
The CRAFTED Committee serves as jurors for the selection process. Priority will be given to work that showcases excellence in technique, originality, innovation, and aesthetic.

NORTHERN CONNECTION
To ensure the show reflects the breadth of relationships the WAG enjoys with artisans in the community, a select number of artists from Nunavut, Nunatsiavut, and the Northwest Territories will be invited to participate.

PROMOTION
For consistent messaging, artisans will be given materials to publicize the event through their own contacts and social media channels. It is understood and agreed by the participating artisans that images and biographical information submitted with this application may be used for promotional purposes.
