The Titchfield Art and Craft Show continues to attract a large number of visitors from around the region. Held in the Community Centre in the historic village of Titchfield, the show offers visitors a wide variety of local art work and, in recent years, has introduced crafts and demonstrations by local makers and societies; promoting the two events together is helping to bridge the gulf between art and craft and attract contemporary art collectors to buy good quality craft and design. Proceeds from the stand fees is split between the Community Centre charity and other local charities decided by the art show committee.

The show will be publicised via local media, road signs and postcards, in addition to social network sites and internet listings. Each maker will be sent electronic posters to send to mailing lists, friends and family.
Applications for the craft show are invited from individual makers or groups. All work on display must be hand made by the maker(s) applying. We reserve the right to select makers wanting to share spaces.
Where possible we will require 2 – 6 good quality images of your work (at least 300dpi images if possible as these may be used in advertising), along with the application form. No money should be sent at this stage as spaces are limited and therefore makers will be selected for the event based on the quality of products, number of applications and variety of crafts.
Deadline for submission of applications is Monday 5th February 2018.
Selection will be made by the Monday 12th February 2018 and we will contact you directly. If successful, you will be required to pay for your table in full by Saturday 18th March 2017, details will be sent to you at a later date.
Spaces are approximately 2m x 1.8m and tables are provided by the Community Centre.
Makers are not permitted to take up room outside of this space without the prior consent of the organisers, this includes free standing rails, mannequins, shelving, small tables, banners etc. Makers are not permitted to hang products on the walls, however you may use a display screen within your space. If you have any special requirements regarding display hardware please give details on application. Due to limitation of space and our aim to maximise the variety of makers on display, only one table is permitted per maker unless you wish to pay for more. Electrical sockets are available to those who require them, please make this known on application.
The cost per space is £75 for the show with an additional cost of £5 for electrical points.
Please note that, whilst the Centre is made secure at the end of each session, we do not arrange insurance cover for your goods and equipment so each maker will be required to have public liability insurance for at least £2,000,000 and a copy of your insurance cover should be sent with your application form.
(For those who do not have existing insurance we recommend taking an annual subscription with AN Magazine which includes an artist specific insurance for a very reasonable fee, see www.a-n.co.uk for details).
