Waldorf Faire – Artisan Market
Saturday, November 23, 2013 from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
On November 23th, we will be hosting our 29th Waldorf Faire. Our annual Faire is a greatly anticipated event within the Calgary community and each year it is joyously and well attended. The Calgary Waldorf School's goal is to create a warm, festive occasion that is eagerly anticipated by adults and children alike. We host many different events and activities which draw in many participants.
One highly anticipated and important event is our annual Artisan Faire. Each year we seek talented artisans to showcase their beautiful works of art. Our guests value and appreciate original art and handmade gifts.
We eagerly invite new and local artisans to apply to our Faire. From years past, the Artisans and their work have a reputation of creating work that is of the highest quality. 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;
- artisan is in attendance and representing their work;
- work is of the highest quality and presented in an appealing way;
- work is unique, not readily available in the 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 June 12th, 2013. Please make sure to include photographs and/ or websites with your applications. Applications received after this point may not be acknowledged until school returns in September. We encourage you to pass applications onto other artisans who you think may be interested in experiencing the Waldorf Faire - A Festival of Joy.
As you know from last year's letter, Susan Lemmon has left her position as coordinator. I am very excited to take on this role with my favourite event at our school. As a brief introduction, I am a trained artist and art therapist, and have two children attending the Waldorf School. I look forward to meeting you and building on the relationship that Susan established with you over her years as the coordinator.
