This year Liverpool’s Winter Arts Market are doing things a little bit differently, taking things digital for an online market.
Following the disappointing news that the team are unable to host the Winter Arts Market at Liverpool Cathedral, they have been working to offer artists and makers an alternative online opportunity to promote their businesses this Christmas.
As we all know, the Winter Arts Market has become an integral part of all our Christmas shopping routines. So to help fill that gap this year, the team are taking it online with a promotion of local, independent, creative businesses. Taking place from 18 November – 31 December, shoppers will be able to discover independent artists and makers via our Arts Market Directory.
Who can get involved:
As always we are looking for artists, makers and creators across all artforms, including ceramics, photography, painting, sculpture, textiles and homewares. All work must be unique, original and handmade or designed by you. Plus, have an online sales facility, i.e., a website, Facebook page, Etsy, etc.
You will get:
– An online advertising space on our Winterartsmarket.com Directory.
– Promotion of the Winter Arts Market Online to our mailing list of over 7,700 subscribers.
– Promotion of the Winter Arts Market Online via our social media channels with a combined following of over 33,200 followers.
How to Apply
Applications will be capped on the first 200 artists/creators/makers that apply and who meet our selection criteria. This is to ensure that we have a great range of shopping options, without over-saturating our online platform. And it is also a similar size to the market when we where in Liverpool Cathedral.
There is an application fee of £15 to apply for the Winter Arts Market Online, which you will be required to pay when completing the application form. This small fee covers our admin fees and promotional costs. We’ve aimed to keep this cost as low as possible, and affordable for all.
Please ensure that your application meets our selection criteria before you apply as the application fee is non-refundable. Please do read the Call for Stallholders document prior to applying.
The deadline to apply is Midnight on Monday 31 October 2022.
