HOW TO SELL YOUR WORK IN THE GALLERY SHOP

To sell product in the Centre’s Gallery Shop, you must be a juried member at the Centre and to do so you must submit your work to our product assessment committee to be juried.

This process is designed to help craftspeople improve the quality of their craft and marketability should they wish to sell their work in different settings. The assessment is performed by a carefully selected committee of qualified craft makers and craft sector professionals.
