Submissions wanted

Dear Sweet Shoppers,

it's nearing the time that the Shoppe opens it's doors for the first time in the UK and we are hoping to round up some more people to contribute to the project.

We are looking for are artists/makers who are able to come up with work linked to Mythical Beasts, preferably Unicorns and Mermaids, but other beasties considered. We would like work to come in the form of multiples of at least six items (ie six prints/ zines/toys) so we are able to create a real shoppe feel to this show. One off's will be considered, especially if they are large scale pieces that are too good to miss out on.

The deadline for work to reach us is September 1st, with the Shoppe opening it's doors to coincide with the start of Weston Arts Festival on September 12th.

There is no fee to take part, however a small commission of 20% on work sold will be charged to cover publicity, venue rental, etc- if for some reason we magically get the venue for free then the commission charged will be even smaller.

The shop will be staffed by volunteers, and if anyone would like to add themselves to the list they would be very welcome- ridiculous shop keeper costumes will be made available to you.

If you would like more information, or want to submit work could you email or leave a comment

looking forward to hearing from you!

Camilla and Simon

Oh jeez, you have no idea how much I want to volunteer. I just have no clue if I could fit that in with work...

But, I'm keen to do something for the shop! I'll go brainstorming.
