Gathering of the Guilds - Portland Oregon
This was taken from our March newsletter. There are a few spots available if you're interested PM me and I can put you in touch with the right people. You do need to join the guild to participate - which isn't expensive.
I will be here with my work so even if you can't participate - I invite you to come and see the show! It truly is a great show - not just the woodworkers, but the entire event.
The Gathering of the Guilds show is only a month away,
May 4th, 5th, & 6th, at the Oregon Convention Center in
This event brings together six major Guilds and their
artisans from all over the Pacific Northwest. This is the largest
single-weekend craft fair under one roof presented anywhere
in the country. Craft guilds represented will include
ceramics, wood, metal, glass, weaving and beads. The event
is admission-free to the general public.
This year marks the 30th anniversary for the founding of
this event by the Oregon Potters Association. Their annual
Ceramics Showcase is now the nationís largest show and
sale of pottery, sculpture, garden art, home accessories and
other works in clay exhibited in over 150 booths. This is an
established happening, always on the first weekend in May,
drawing well over 20,000 visitors over one weekend.
By combining our resources, our Guilds have secured
the talents of a major NW advertising/PR firm and we fully
expect, through print and radio advertising, to see even larger
attendance figures than last year.
Our woodworking area will include the additional draws
of the annual intra-Guild Show, our annual woodworking
competition, as well as a Student competition. What this
means for you is more bodies passing by your booth!
For the High School Student:
All high schools with woodworking programs are invited
to display your studentís work in a free booth space. Last
year's participation by Gaston and David Douglas High
Schools was extremely well received.
The Ninth Annual Intra-Guild Show
All Guild members are invited to enter the Ninth Annual
Intra-Guild show. Categories are Advanced, Intermediate
and Beginner. Rules: made within the last two years and
never exhibited before in an Intra-Guild show. Professional
judges pick the best in each category for prizes and awards.
The George E. DuBois Best of Show Award awaits the best
of show winner.
For the Professional:
Rent a 10x10 foot booth space for only $400. Multiple
adjoining spaces are available. A few spaces are still available.
For the hobby level member :
The Guild is sponsoring one booth space to be used to
display items for sale. These are pieces built by hobbyist
Guild members. Find out if there's a market for you.
