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. This session will cover topics such as VHC membership and benefits, including event participation.

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.

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

There are two ways to apply. You can use the online application or download the membership application form below, complete the application and mail it in. See a list of the 2020 jury sessions and submission deadlines.
