Handmade Oxford – the International Contemporary Arts Festival at Waterperry Gardens, 27-30 June 2019.

New spaces added:

We have added a new marque and have a limited number of new spaces available. Want to know more? Take a look at the Handmade Oxford information pack and apply online (scroll down the page for application form).

Please be aware that we have been overwhelmed with an unprecedented amount of applications from jewellery designers, and in order to maintain a balance of disciplines we have had to make the difficult decision to pause before we can offer spaces to anyone else working in this field.

Outdoor Sculpture at Waterperry

Artists interested in exhibiting large-scale sculpture outside at Waterperry Gardens (27 June – 8 August 2019) should refer to the Outdoor Sculpture Exhibitor Information Pack before completing the online form below.

Workshops

If you would like to propose a workshop for the event, click here to submit your workshop proposal.

 

We recommend using Google Chrome or Firefox to complete the application form, rather than Internet Explorer or Safari. If you are experiencing any issues submitting your form, please check you have uploaded all of your images at the required size and completed all compulsory fields.

 

APPLICATION FEE

Please note that there is an application fee of £20. We have many applicants for each show and this is necessary in order to assess everyone fairly. Once you submit the online application form, you will be automatically diverted to PayPal in order to transfer the application fee.

EXHIBITION SPACE CONTRACT

All applications must be accompanied by a signed Exhibition Space Contract, otherwise we will be unable to process your application. Please either email to events@handmadeinbritain.co.uk or post to Handmade in Britain, Studio 10, Old Paradise Yard, 20 Carlisle Lane, London SE1 7LG.

The Exhibition Space Contract details the costs involved in taking part in the event.

Details will be provided in due course.  The contract for exhibitors and demonstrators can be downloaded here. The Outdoor Sculpture Contract can be downloaded here.

Fine artists, photographers and printers may prefer to use the Artist / Wall Space Contract which can be downloaded here. This provides a narrower, but longer stand than the regular stand, in order to display flat, wall-mounted artwork only.
