How To Jury Your Work
Potential members should bring a minimum of 3-5 samples of their work 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. The work will be evaluated on the following criteria:
A. Originality - Scale of 1 - 6 Points
Judged on uniqueness of item. Use of medium.
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.
Applicants should set up their items before 6:30 p.m. No new items will be accepted after 6:30 p.m.
We realize that not everyone is able to have their crafts juried on our scheduled meeting days. The LVCG accepts applicants to jury by sending 5-8 clear pictures of their work to email@example.com. Please send a detailed description along with each photo. We may request to view the actual items in photos before making final decisions on extending an invitation to join the Guild.
Applicants should schedule an appointment by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Currently, we have a hold on membership for jewelry artisans until further notice.
