There is nothing more frustrating than spending several months of work to be ready for a show of art and crafts fair, only to find that the other cabins are filled with pre-made items. You work hard on your hand and crafts, and you spend a lot of time working on these things. It’s annoying when other people can undermine you with cheap goods they imported or purchased from wholesalers. If you want to hold art festivals and craft shows handmade, there are some things you can do.
One thing you can do is boycott the festivals that allow non-handcrafted items. Check all requirements and that the festival can pre-made items or sell items just do not go. If there are enough providers to do so and explain why they do it when asked, will those who organize craft shows and art exhibitions eventually get the point, as they begin to lose all their suppliers.
Another thing you can do is look for exhibitions and juried art festivals. These are just going to leave in the best of the best. If you can get one of these programs, which have a good chance to meet some new customers who really want to expand elements entirely by hand. The application process shows jury may be more complex, but it can certainly help prevent the states where providers fill other positions of nonsense imported.
If you’re frustrated that a small local display allows the non-handmade items to display, you can certainly band together with other local suppliers. Contact the organization or agency that hosts the show, and tell them to lose a number of suppliers, without taking the decision to prohibit the resale and wholesale properties. This can be very effective if you have an organization and human resources to help this work for you.
Finally, it is always possible to ensure that the cabin is filled with only handmade products. Set a good example for others, and make sure that customers know that products are completely hand. It can also describe the creative process, or let the customer see you do the items you sell. This can let you know how much difference is between the hand and handmade objects. As more and more people begin to choose between hand-made options, you will notice that the craft fair will begin to worry more toward the arts and crafts.Tags: art and crafts, art exhibitions, art festivals, arts festivals, juried art
