Window Dressing Opportunity for Good Looking Artists

We've had many a cracking window display over the years and we plan to continue in the same vein - which is where you come in, you with the crafty twiglets. Calling all artists / designers / makers / creatives: we are looking for window dressers for the shop window.

What do we want exactly? 

  • The window will need to be eye catching and imaginative, but still allow the products to stand out.
  • There are quite a large range of products to be displayed including prints, magazines and artists books, cards, bags, cushions, jewellery and ceramics so it would be worth considering how small and large items can be displayed.
  • The windows are viewable from the side as you enter the shop, as well as from the outside, considering both view points can be more interesting for the viewer.
  • It’s also good to think about the whole space and how this can be used – the glass as a foreground, the wall as background as well as how the central space is filled.

  • The floor and walls can be covered/painted if need be.
  • Items can be attached to the back wall and light items can be hung from the ceiling.
  • There is one main spotlight from above but additional lighting can be added.
  • There is one double extension lead currently fitted into the window if any power is needed.

What do we offer in return?

Sadly as we're a charity on a shoestring budget we can't pay you big bucks BUT you will get a £30 budget for materials, a fantastic opportunity to show off your work for a whole month and when you install your window we will keep the tea and biscuits flowing (can biscuits flow?)

If you haven't already been in, first have a word with yourself, and then come in and have a look at the window. It's quite a big space, lots of possibilities: draw on the window, the walls, hang things from the ceiling, build up layers.... go to town. in the window.

 And seeing as you'll be in to look at the window you may as well spend some money in here too...

For you Sir?
