We are always interested in hearing from artists, designers and makers from the Lancashire area who are interested in joining us. If your work is original, creative and produced to a very high professional standard then we would like to hear from you.
Most of our artists are involved in the running of our gallery shops and help us to run the business by serving in one or both shops for 2 days a month.
We are a CIC (community interest company) and as such run as a not for profit organisation with no-one taking a salary from the business and therefore rely on artists volunteering to run the shops.
In order to cover our costs, we also have to take a commission from sales but for those who work in the shops, this is kept to a minimal amount.
Alternatively for those unable to commit to this, we may invite you to exhibit as a visiting artist on a temporary basis and therefore taking a much higher commission on sales in line with most commercial craft galleries.
We cannot take on everyone who applies to us as we have limited space and need to keep a high standard and variety of work but we need to see the sort of work that you do before we can decide who to interview for a place. Preference is given to those who will help to run the shops.
Please note that we cannot consider you if you do not give us at least one link to your online presence or email at least 4 good quality images of your work to lancashiremakers @gmail.com
