Apply for Membership

If you are interested in applying for membership at Handwork, please read the following steps:

E-mail us at handworkcoop@gmail.com to request an application form. Or, download the app here.

Make an appointment to bring in your application and samples.

Call or e-mail Handwork's manager to schedule jurying time for your work. Work is juried the fourth Monday of each month, January through September. 

Please do not drop off work without first talking to the manager.

When you do drop off your work, please include your filled out application form.

Work samples for review need to be at the store by the 1st of the month. Please include a minimum of six pieces, and more if needed to fully represent the work that you would like to sell. Furniture makers might only bring in 2 -3 pieces and a portfolio, but jewelers should probably bring in 2 - 3 dozen pieces.

Handwork will handle all items carefully but cannot accept responsibility for any work left for jurying. If your work is extremely fragile or valuable please talk to the manager about other arrangements. Samples should be labelled with retail (selling) price.

We will also need:

- Three references (preferably business).

- Description of all materials, techniques and range of work

Samples can be picked up Tuesday following the meeting.

Handwork will notify applicants of results within one week of the meeting.

If you have questions about this process, please e-mail Elly O'Brien at Handworkcoop@gmail.com
