ECHO Craft Bazaar 2007
The Tatham Art Gallery would like to remind all crafts people about the Echo Craft bazaar, a craft market which has taken place annually at the Tatham Art Gallery for the past 11. years.
The Tatham Art Gallery will be hosting the Bazaar for the last time this year. Although the Gallery will no longer be involved, the bazaar is going to continue under the auspices of The Witness.
Crafters should start now rather than later to make craft products for the bazaar. It takes time to modify and improve craft to ensure that it is of good quality. The Echo Craft Bazaar will continue to set high standards on the craft accepted for the Bazaar.
Entries to this year's Bazaar should be brought to the old Church building in the grounds of Tatham Art Gallery from Sunday 4, 5 and 6 November between 10 am and 4 pm.
Time to get crafty!
If you make high quality, original craft work, get ready to submit your work for selection for the Echo Craft Bazaar. This is an annual sale of the best craft of KwaZulu-Natal, held in the Tatham Art Gallery. Submissions and selection of craft will take place on November 4, 5 and 6, from 10 am to 4 pm. Bring your work to the main gallery inside the Tatham Art Gallery. Decide before on the price you want for each item, but do not label them. The Gallery will add 20% commission to your price.
Need help deciding what to submit? The selectors will look for high quality work that is beautifully made. They also want unusual items that show the makers' creativity. You should not re-submit items that did not sell well at last year's sale.
The Echo Craft Bazaar will take place from Friday 23 November to Sunday 2 December. For more information about submitting work for sale, contact Phumzile Sithole or S'bahle Khanyile on 033-392 2801.
