Exhibitor Signup Deadline - 30th April 2024


Thank you to all who have applied. Applications are now closed.

This year’s festival is a fantastic opportunity to exhibit and sell your work.

Whether you’re a professional artist or a passionate amateur, there are plenty of reasons to showcase your work at Stoke on Clay Festival 2024:

  • be part of curated collections professionally displayed at inspiring venues like Spode Museum Trust, Brampton Museum and Barewall Gallery.
  • expose your work to thousands of people – last year’s festival attracted over 15,000 visitors
  • a great opportunity to sell your work*
  • once work is sold it can be replenished
  • have your profile displayed on our website for the duration of the festival
  • collaborate with other artists
  • the festival will be heavily marketed around and beyond North Staffordshire – last year’s event gained coverage on the BBC

You’ll get all of the above for just

£ 45
  • That's just £1 a day to display your work during the festival
  • every penny of which goes towards the running costs of the festival
    (including public liability insurance)

* if you want to make your work available for sale, please note there will be a commission fee of 30% for pieces sold at Spode Museum Trust, 30% plus VAT at Brampton Museum and 50% plus VAT at Barewall Art Gallery.

How to apply

We’ll be accepting applications from 20th February to 30th April. Exhibitors will then be selected by a panel chaired by Kevin Millward, cofounder and course director at Clay College.
