On 18 January 2018, Making Space is partnering with Rowans Hospice to host a fundraising exhibition and auction event to bring our 10th Anniversary celebrations to a close.
The event is themed around the material ‘Tin’, which traditionally is associated with 10th anniversary celebrations. Professional artists and makers are invited to submit work, which showcases their individual creative talent and inspiration responds to the theme of Tin.
Making Space is now doing an Open Call to professional artists and makers to submit work for selection. As a maker, you have free reign on how you wish to decorate, customise or use the tin for your submission, you could even use the material tin to create something new or respond to the theme of Tin using a different medium all together. It’s completely up to you.
Tins can vary in size from small food tins up to bigger biscuit tins, but all submissions must meet specific health and safety guidelines that are listed below. Please read these beforehand and note that if these H&S guidelines are not met, Making Space reserves the right to refuse your submission for exhibition. In order to produce a professional show we will be selecting pieces from all the submissions to ensure a high level of craftsmanship and variety in the final curated exhibition.
All pieces included in the show will have a reserve/minimum price of either £20.00, £30.00 or £50.00 depending on the size and complexity of the piece.
From the final sale price the artist will receive 30%, 30% will go to Making Space and 40% will go to Rowans Hospice.
