Applicants must be residents of Vermont and at least 18 years of age.

An applicant for membership must submit a completed application along with images of their work for review by the Jury Committee. If the application meets our requirements, you will be invited to submit samples of your work for a hands-on evaluation by the Jury Committee.

While the Jury Committee reviews applicants' work, the Director of Events will meet with all applicants for an orientation session. Applicants not accepted for membership are given advice on how to improve their work and will be offered a chance to mentor with a current member.

The jurors are looking for work which has a high level of craftsmanship. All work must be original and made by hand or with the use of appropriate tools. The work must function well, show proficiency, quality, consistency, knowledgeable use of materials, and artistic potential.

Foods, Personal Care Products, Pet-use Products, and Candles are unique categories. Please email us at before applying.
