CLAYSCHOOL SUMMER SHOW 2018
Information for Participants
Saturday 15th DECEMBER 1pm-7pm at Wandering Cooks
The event details will be on Facebook very soon - we will send you an email when the event is live. Invite your friends and family we want to make this one a big one!
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 NOV 25
Make a collection of work (if you haven't already)
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 DRAFT catalog before SATURDAY DECEMBER 1st.
Email us a FINAL catalog before SATURDAY DECEMBER 8th at 5pm.
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.
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 14th of DECEMBER (work cannot be brought on Saturday as the carpark will be busy)
Set up your work on Saturday 15th DECEMBER at 10am (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 for a 70min 'shift' on the sales desk or for setting up/packing up. (Roster is below)
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 7pm or on Sunday morning between 8am and 11am. PLEASE NOTE there is an event that starts at 1pm 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)
You need to fill it out and email a draft before SATURDAY DECEMBER 1 and the FINAL version by SAT DECEMBER 8th at 5pm. Please email the form to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will not be accepting handwritten forms, please fill out and send back in excel format or google docs.
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.
As this is such a big show we will be having 3 sales stations this year instead of 2. Sign up to a shift on the ROSTER. This is a shared file and should update automatically.
Looking forward to another great show!!
