Thank you for helping the Haverford Guild of Craftsmen to put on another great Art & Fine Craft show! We welcome members, friends of members, participating artists and people from the community and anyone else who may be interested to sign up. Volunteer slots are for specific tasks, organized under those committees. If you have questions, or if something comes up, please contact us here.
Participating artists who volunteer, or who have a helper or friend who volunteers, will be automatically added to a “Featured Artist” section in our program. Volunteering is the only way to get into this section of the program! If you are a participating artist, please write “Participating artist” in the comment section when you sign up. If you are a helper for a participating artist, please note which artist you are helping out in the comments.
You can see a sample of our booklet here. To be included in the “Featured Artist section of the program you must sign up before October 15, 2023.
Many hands make light work! Thank you all for helping us!
Yours will be the first face that attendees see. Your job is to welcome them, direct them to the greeters downstairs and hand them a program. You’ll also let people know that they can sign in on their phone so they can skip that step when they pay at the table.
Signage volunteers will place the signs out before the show begins and takes them back down again after the show. Spouses are welcome to sign up! The show chair will have a map with where the signs should go.
Booth Layout Committee:
The booth committee may meet to help plan the floor layout – making the best use of the space and as balanced as possible. Then, during the setup day, the Booth Layout Committee tapes the spaces on the floor down so that artists know where to go to set up their booth.
The Cords Committee is responsible for taping down the cords and surge protectors that artists will plug into for the duration of the show.
Publicity & Sponsorship Committee:
Help get the word out! We need advertising and sponsors to help make this show a success. There are lots of ways to help out.
Artist Display/Raffle & Membership Tables:
On the day of the show we will need someone to “man” the Artist Display table. This person will also be there to answer questions about guild membership as well as hand out membership forms to anyone who is interested.
Décor & Hospitality:
On the day of the show we will need volunteers to help us out with decorations and stocking the artist hospitality area.
On the day of the show we will need volunteers to help us out help the artists load in and out with the loading doc. We will provide walkie-talkies and safety vests.
We will need help getting our show supplies from and to our storage unit and back again. If the driver is a participating artist and needs a larger vehicle, we will reimburse you for a rental van or small truck. Multiple trips are perfectly fine. The Storage Unit is located at Public Storage in Haverford.
Select volunteer slots will qualify for a $25 booth reimbursement for participating artists. One reimbursement per artist regardless of the number of slots they or a representative are signed up for. Artists will be reimbursed after the show.
