For my Artisan Friends (please pass it on!):
As you may have heard, I'm starting a new event, Brighid's Well. This event is an earth spirituality-centered handcraft convention which will be held at the Radisson Piscataway in NJ on Nov 19-21, 2010. Yes, this is a new date.
Encompassing a juried Artisan's Room, an Art Show with a silent auction for charity, Workshops on handcrafting techniques, and more, the event promises to be a low-key, fun way to kick off the holiday season. You'll have an opportunity to sell your work, share techniques with others and network.
Please consider applying to be in the Artisans' Room and perhaps to teach a couple of Workshops as well.
• The booth fee is only $250 and there is no jury fee this year. You get two free entries to the event, a 10'x10' booth space, two chairs and a table for the fee. We will also be providing booth sitters from time to time throughout the day. Exhibit floor hours will be Friday 4 pm-9 pm, Saturday 10 am- 7 pm, Sunday 10 am-4 pm.
• There will be no more than 50 vendors at the event this year. The jury includes craft gallery owners and craftspeople.
• Hotel rooms are $99 a night for up to 4 people.
• If you choose to teach, I can pay you $10 per registrant for your Workshops. You can also charge a materials fee for anything needed for your class.
