The Waters Makers Fair Committee is working diligently in recruiting top notch makers. If you know a talented artist, please pass the following information along!
To Apply: Applications now open for Lincoln Square/Ravenswood DIY juried craft market. Ideal way for newcomers or small-scale/Etsy shop vendors to showcase DIY talent and work, while supporting a Chicago neighborhood public arts magnet school and its students. Hundreds of neighbors, families and friends attend this annual holiday market for food, fun, community and shopping locally together. Applications accepted from now through October 11; notifications via email by October 25. Because we receive many more applications than we can accept and to keep the items offered at the market within our quality standards, Waters Makers Fair is a juried event. A table fee of $100 will be collected once you are accepted for costs associated with the event; 100% of proceeds of your sales will be your own. To apply, please email the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org:
Type “2019 Application” in the subject line
Your Name & Business Name
Email address & Website URL
Street Address & Phone number
Brief description of your work
Price point (a range and average price)
3-5 jpeg images of your work, a digital portfolio, Etsy site or a website URL
Keep in mind the following when you apply: Your items must be made by hand and DIY craft-oriented in approach. We aim to offer a diverse line of goods, or specialized products that are available in a variety of styles. The jewelry category, for example, is incredibly competitive; if you offer jewelry along with other items, this is to your advantage. The average price of your items fit our goal of promoting accessible, affordable handmade/DIY goods; prices typically range between $1 to $100. All items must be creatively and professionally presented.
The Waters Makers Fair will be promoted extensively on websites and social media, and via flyers and street banners. For additional information, please email email@example.com. We look forward to reviewing your application!
