Living Crafts 2017 Call for Artists

Living Crafts

Once again this year the focus is on widening participation and showcasing the diversity of artists that make up the HVA.

This is an exciting opportunity to demonstrate your skills, exhibit and sell your work at a very prestigious national event and promote the benefits of membership of Herts Visual Arts.

  • This year all art disciplines are invited to take part every day, particularly those who have not taken part before.
  • You can state your preferred day of attendance.
  • Each artist is invited to use their own promotional materials such as banners and bunting on both the outside and inside of the tent.

We aim to make the HVA tent a ‘must visit’ attraction at Living Crafts, carry out demonstrations of the various skills of HVA artists and increase footfall.

*UPDATE: This has now been filled - thanks members for your interest!
