Upcoming Info Session: The Jurying Process & Craft Critique

Date: Saturday, April 20th, 2024
Time: 1 pm – 3 pm
Location: Fredericton (Exact location to be confirmed with participants)
Open To: General Members & Non-Members

Curious about what it means to go through the jurying process?Join us for an in person session where we’ll dispel the common misconceptions about becoming a juried member of Craft NB; Review the standards of quality the jury is looking for in your pieces; and have one of your items critiqued to give you a better understanding of the process.

You don’t have to be professionally trained or involved in the craft scene to become a juried member. You simply need to create hand-made crafts of exceptional quality, and have the desire to be seen as a professional in your field.

This session is FREE for General Members to attend. Non-members/members of the public are invited to join Craft NB as a General Member ($50/year) in order to participate in this event and future 2024 events & sessions.

Come learn about the jurying process and start creating your craft portfolio! Registrations for this info session will be accepted until April 10th, 2024.

Please Note: The Jurying Submission dates have changed! If you have paid your Jurying Application Fee, you must drop off items for jurying the week of June 10th-14th from 8:30 am – 10:30 am. We have pushed back the drop off dates to allow applicants to attend this info session and create/adjust work before submitting.
