If you would like to apply for a stand at our 2018 show our application process is designed to ensure that makers of appropriate and sufficient quality are carefully selected to take up one of the limited number of stands in this dedicated area.
Once again we are delighted that the Craft Marquee will be supported by Devon Life magazine. A half page feature in a future issue of Devon Life will be awarded to the Best stand judged on the show day.
It is vitally important to us, our visitors and all our exhibitors that the quality of offering in the marquee is high. By applying you are required to undergo a simple process to ensure the quality of product and commitment to your craft. This process will be as follows:
• Please complete and sign the downloadable form by Monday 16 April 2018, including photographic evidence and/or a website link of your work.
• Successful applicants will be notified by Monday 7 May 2018.
If you prefer not to apply for a stand through this process you may alternatively do so for the separate Lifestyle Pavilion marquee area (adjacent to the Craft area); the Lifestyle Pavilion will be broadly monitored for quality of potential stand items but they will not necessarily be made by the maker directly.
The Show Committee’s ambition is to provide a showcase of the highest standards of workmanship and design from all its craft stand holders. We are looking particularly for work which is original and imaginative, shows an appropriate and sensitive use of materials, a high level of craft skill and involvement with the process and excellent finish.
