THE GREAT NORTHERN CONTEMPORARY CRAFT FAIR 2009
CALL FOR ENTRIES
This major new annual selling event in Manchester, England, celebrating the very best in contemporary craft, is inviting applications from accomplished designer-makers.
The Great Northern Contemporary Craft launched in October 2008 to great critical acclaim from both exhibitors and visitors. The inaugural show attracted 3500 visitors and the exhibitors reported collective sales in excess of ?100,000.
The Great Northern is a high profile, high quality selected event that will showcase the finest contemporary craft coming out of the North and give makers from other parts an opportunity to establish a northern client base. We will present approx 130 of the most innovative and influential designer-makers in the UK - both established and emerging - and give them a platform to sell their work directly to the public. To ensure high standards and cutting-edge craft, all exhibitors will be selected by an independent panel of craft experts to create an inspiring mix of ceramics, jewellery, glass, wood, textiles, silver, metalwork, basketry, paper and more.
The Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair, a three day event with a preview evening, including an awards ceremony, will be held between 22nd-25th October 2009 at The Manchester Grammar School, an elegant venue with free parking and good access.
This will be an excellent opportunity to sell and promote work to a new audience of buyers and collectors.
