Calling Artists, Designers, Makers & Craftspeople…

Christmas is always a particularly exciting time at The Washington Gallery, but this year from 6th November 2012 – 15th January 2013, we want to make it that little bit more special by stocking unique, handmade, made-in Wales arts & crafts for people to buy.

We’re interested in:

  • Framed and unframed originals (any medium)
  • Framed and unframed prints  (including giclee, photographic, silk-screen, etc.)
  • Canvases
  • Ceramics (decorative or use-able i.e teapots, mugs, vases etc.)
  • Textiles (scarves, gloves, blankets, throws, wall-hangings, bags, purses, etc.)
  • Textile-art
  • Soft furnishings (cushions, tea towels etc.)
  • Giftware (mugs, notelets and other stationary, journals, handmade toys, etc.)
  • Jewellery
  • Book-art
  • Novelties
  • Handmade arts/craft kits
  • Greetings cards (Christmas themed or ‘blank-inside’)


To keep quality to a maximum, we ask that you apply to us by filling in an application form and attaching a few images of your work (it doesn’t necessarily have to be Christmas themed, just give us an idea of what you make/what your style is). If you’ve been successful in securing a spot, the gallery will contact you with further details.

You can email us at or post your application and images to:

‘Christmas @ The Washington, Oriel Washington Gallery, 1-3 Washington Buildings, Stanwell Road, Penarth, CF64 2AD’.

If you have any questions in the meantime, don’t hesitate to contact us on 02920 712 100 or at the email above.
