Welcome to our applications page, all Makers.
- Applications are only accepted online via our website.
- We run two application rounds per year – one for Autumn/Winter (shows in the first half of the year) and one for Spring/Summer (shows in the second half of the year).
- Our application process runs through our creative team and takes time, lots of consideration and looking at previous statistics, so please be patient.

The process in short:

- All applicants are contacted via email as to their application status
- Viewings details are sent to applicants who made it through to the second round
