Artisans Hand Craft Gallery in Montpelier is currently working to develop a scholarship and outreach program to support up-and-coming and student artisans in furthering their craft. We will start this process by setting up a display of student work here at the gallery, where the gallery percentage of sales will go into a scholarship fund that will sponsor student applicants to attend a local craft school, camp or workshop to further the development of their work. It will also give them an opportunity to try out displaying with a gallery and building a relationship to possibly become a full member with us.
We are looking to find artisans that may not yet be ready to fully display in a gallery but would benefit from starting with us as a student exhibitor. Folks that display with us in this way will then be eligible to apply for our scholarship. We are hoping to sponsor our first craftsperson by the beginning of 2023.
Please send inquiries and photos of work to Hannah Mitchell at [email protected].
Thank you and all the best!
