INFORMATION FOR PARTICIPANTS
SATURDAY 29TH JUNE 11AM-5PM AT WANDERING COOKS
The event details is on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/events/324671611552295/
The show is a great way to share your work with the community and get used to the public seeing your work. Each year the show gets bigger and better. In order to make the process easier for everyone, we have tried to place all of the required information here on one page.
Here is how it works and what we need you to do:
Register your interest and final artist statement before JUN 1
Make a collection of work
Decide on prices for the work
Complete the catalog spreadsheet listing each of your pieces, a description and the price. The catalog is attached below if you want to start filling it out as you make work.
Email us a FINAL catalog before Tuesday 18th of JUNE at 5pm. We aren’t asking for a draft catalog this time around but if you miss this cut off date you will be removed from the show. This is extremely important and we expect that you will make it your responsibility to get your final catalog in on time.
Price all of the work - write your code (initials) and the price on a sticker. Each piece must have a sticker. Please do this before the setup day. NOTE: At the last Christmas show we had a few issues with stickers coming off work. This makes it extremely difficult for the volunteers at the cash register to know who’s work it is and how to enter the work into the till/point of sale system. After the show we also have lost work and uncoded amounts which ultimately means you run the risk of losing these sales. PLEASE make sure your stickers are firmly attached to your work and your codes & prices match what is in your catalog.
There will be half a table (approximately 800mm x 800mm) for you to exhibit your work on. If you have more work than this, you can store it in a container under the table and restock it as required. Please note - it is your responsibility to re-stock the work.
Drop off your work to wandering cooks on FRIDAY 28th JUNE (work cannot be brought on Saturday as the carpark will be busy)
Set up your work on Saturday 29th JUNE at 9am (if you are not available, arrange for a buddy from your class to setup your table or we can do it for you but you need to let us know).
Participate in the running of the show - sign up a 'shift' on the sales desk or for setting up/packing up. (Roster is below) NOTE: It is very important that you show up for your roster at the correct time. Last year we had a few people who didn’t show or missed the time and this meant that others had to do double shifts. This is a group show for all of us and we rely a lot on everyone doing the right thing.
There is a 15% commission which covers the organisation, admin, banking fees, accounting and costs of paper bags & wrapping paper. This fee will be subtracted from your sales.
Your 'takings' (minus the commission) will be calculated and transferred to you a week or so after the show.
All unsold work can be collected after 5pm on the Saturday night or on Sunday morning between 8am and 1pm. PLEASE NOTE there is an event that starts at 3pm on Sunday so work must be collected before this.
If you have questions please email me.
Download the Catalog template here.
To do this go to FILE > DOWNLOAD AS > MICROSOFT EXCEL
or to make a copy on your google docs FILE > MAKE A COPY… > (then rename and file to your google docs accordingly)
PLEASE DO NOT FILL OUT THE DIRECT LINKED FILE!
You need to fill it out and email the FINAL (as an EXCEL format) by TUES 18th of JUNE at 5pm. Please email the form to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will not be accepting handwritten forms, or pdfs.
It is a good idea to have general codes & prices and more quantities for your work. IE - Code (JJ01) Description (MUG) Price ($40) Quantity (10). Always make your quantity more than necessary if you have any last minute work you can add to the show. There is a good example catalog available to view here.
Sign up to a shift on the ROSTER. This is a shared file and should update automatically.
As this is a Clayschool show, Ray will have final say on how, where and what work will be displayed. The allocation of spaces and tables
is random but in some circumstances work or tables may be rearranged to present a better overall presentation.
Looking forward to another great show!!
