Rainbow Silks will have a shop/stall at the Festival with items to buy, and are offering the opportunity to collect orders there by arrangement. Please go to their website to make your order and contact Caroline about collection on-site/ with any quesitons.
There is also the opportunity to sell some of your work, either in the Open Exhibition Gallery section (secure area, hanging fee £2 per item, max £5 in total) or on tables in the public lobby (£5 per table for the weekend). Please note lobby tables require staffing at all times to prevent theft as we are close to the busy High Street where thieves sometimes operate.
The Challenge entries will be exhibited in the College's Gallery space all weekend as well as any general non-sale work submitted to the Open Exhibition.
