- A selection of up to 10 images of your work, including details of materials and how they are made if appropriate
- The retail price of each item ( please see FAQ’s below for details of commission rates)
- Your name, location and contact details
- A paragraph about you and your work, including your website or blog address, if you have one
- The approximate lead time for your work
Once you have heard back to say that we would like to stock your work, we will follow up to confirm the details of the individual works to be sent. We will also give you further information on how, where and when to send your work, and discuss how and when you will be paid.
At the moment we can only reply to successful applicants, we are continually evolving, so please don’t be disappointed if your work is not taken in the first instance. Although we will not be able to take on all work as we have limited space within the shop, we will continue to accept applications throughout the year.
Can I just bring my work in to show you?
Although we would welcome keen artists and designers to visit and show us their work, to give all artists and designers an equal chance to exhibit, we ask that everyone submits a standard application with the information detailed above. We will then get in touch once applications have been reviewed by our staff.
Arts at the Old Fire Station currently, gives 55% of the retail price to the artist or designer and keeps 45% commission. When detailing the price of your work, please take this into consideration.
We will initially take products for three months, at this point we will review how items are selling, and after discussion with you we will return any items where necessary.
The Shop at the Old Fire Station is a changing space, and we are very open to ideas! We will be looking to stock jewellery and accessories, prints and illustration, ceramics, zines, cards and notebooks, textiles and more. We are keen to support emerging artists, and will have a focus on artists from Oxfordshire and the South East, however we aim to work with other designers from across the UK so do get in touch if you are from outside of these boundaries and would like to exhibit in Oxford.
The Old Fire Station is situated in a fantastic location in central Oxford, with entrances from both Gloucester Green market place, and George Street. We are very close to the bus station, and a 5 minute walk from the train station.
You will have a space to showcase your work other alongside like-minded, high quality makers in Oxford’s brand new arts venue dedicated to the support of individual artists and designer makers.
