The Calgary Waldorf School is accepting applications from artisans to participate in our 33nd Annual Waldorf Faire to be held on Saturday, November 25, 2017, from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
For information and an Artisan Application for The 2017 Waldorf Faire please click HERE.
Our goals for the Artisan Market are to provide our families and friends with a place to acquire original art and quality handmade items and gifts. We also want to offer new and local artisans the opportunity to showcase and sell their works of art.
In order to ensure the integrity and originality of the Waldorf Faire, each artisan must exhibit the following qualities:
- Work is original and is made by the artisan (no imported or mass-produced products)
- Work is of the highest quality and presented in an appealing way
- Work is unique, not readily available in Calgary and contributes to the overall exhibition balance
- For returning artisans, work must evolve and change
If you are interested in participating, we ask that you submit the attached application by May 15, 2017.
Applications received by the deadline will be responded to by June 15th. Applications received after the deadline will be reviewed and responded to in the fall dependent on available space.
We look forward to receiving your application! We also encourage you to pass applications onto other artisans who you think may be interested in experiencing the Waldorf Faire.
