How To Jury Your Work

Applicants must be at 18 years old or older to submit works for the jury process.
Potential members should  bring a minimum of 4-6 samples of each craft for evaluation by the Jury committee.  You will have an opportunity to tell the committee how your crafting process takes place, etc.  Works will be screened by a jury of no less than three Guild members, with experience in different media.  

Items made from a kit  or items that are not family friendly will not be allowed.

The work will be evaluated on the following criteria:
         A.  Originality - Scale of 1 - 6 Points

              Concept of product.
         B.  Quality - Scale of 1 - 8 Points
              Quality of craftsmanship and quality of materials  
         C.  Appearance - Scale of 1 -6 Points
              Use of color, textures, and materials.   
              Presentation and attention to detail.
The scores will be combined and averaged for a final score. Applicants meeting the minimum score of 16 out of 20 will be invited to join the Guild. 
Jurying takes place between 6:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on the nights of the monthly meeting. You must schedule an appointment to jury your items. Jurying is not held during  June, July, October, November or December.
