CALLING ALL ARTISTS & CRAFTERS!

IAI are inviting artists and crafters to apply for tables at our Bloomin’ Marvellous Spring Into Summer Fair on Saturday 2nd May 2015, 11am-5pm at Inverkeithing Civic Centre, Queen Street.

The general theme of the event is ‘new beginnings and fresh starts’. Please give some thought as to how your work might fit in with the Fair’s theme. For example, do you make children’s items, have you recently started selling your work, or do you look to Spring as a source of inspiration?

Tables cost £20 plus a donation of one piece of work to our raffle, which will support Inverkeithing Art Initiative’s goal of opening an art and learning centre in Inverkeithing.

Due to limited space and the need to have a good variety of types of arts and crafts on show, this will be a curated event. Email us at info@inverkeithing.org to request more information and to request an  application form.

Application deadline is March 20th 2015

Get applying and good luck!DSC05327
