pledged of £12,652

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

We want to invite you into the first local arts and crafts fair in Fulham. Come and join free inspiring workshops, discover new talents, and check what established artists have on offer! We are passionate about the arts and the positive impact it can have on our community, our workshops, for children and adults alike, will not only allow you to explore your creativity but connect you with our environment in an exciting theme centred on being eco-friendly. And as we take this subject seriously we are delivering a green event. Come along! Try a new skill, find unique pieces, discover new talents or simply enjoy a day in the park!

What we'll deliver:

  • Free Arts workshops for adults
  • Free Arts workshops for children
  • Open to all Themed Exhibit
  • Eco-friendly event
  • Event website and artists and craftspeople online forum
  • More than twenty artists and craftspeople's unique pieces

Why it's a great idea:

The project is an opportunity to harness the creative skills of locals, provide a launch platform for small businesses, and contribute to H&F’s profile. We want to gather works in any media, from knitwear to paintings, inventions, sculptures, decorative arts, the more varied the better! Our aim is to advance the arts and crafts by engaging the community in on-site workshops and exposure to a variety of artworks. Our objectives are: • To offer children and adults workshops where to experiment with art in a supportive environment. • To encourage a dialogue through art with subjects that affect us all such as sustainability and what it means being eco-friendly. • To connect with locals who would mostly benefit form arts workshops. • To provide local artists and craftspeople with a platform to network, sell their work and teach. • To promote jobs by utilising the local workforce for the delivery of the event. • To promote the local economy, through arts events and activities.

Steps to get it done:

  • Project management plan (costs, health and safety, risks, resources, time, etc.)
  • Hire infrastructure
  • Setup and breakdown schedule
  • Day schedule and event map
  • Digital & print promotion
  • Book workshops & register attendees
  • Artists forum
  • Press release
  • Book first aid, security and stewarding
  • Themed exhibit brief and works selection
  • Buy insurance
  • Find local artists

Workshops We are planning and fine tuning what workshops will be most suitable. If you have a preference of a particular medium or craft, please let us know and we'll take your feedback into account. Details of what workshops will be available and how to book will be provided in due time. Themed Exhibit The themed exhibit will showcase works from artists under the "sustainability" banner. There will be opportunities to know more about the artists and what has motivated them. Workshops programmes Through this event we would like to connect with organisations that can help us reach those that would benefit most from learning a new artistic skills, regardless of age and background. Our aim is to organise programmes that can be delivered to these groups for free. Come and chat to us at the themed exhibit.
