Descriptions of Accepted Vendors: 

Our goal is to provide a balanced show that showcases handmade/handcrafted arts and crafts and a diversity of types by the applying artist. Although we work towards having varied types as a principal objective, the Autumn Leaves Festival does not establish a quota in any category. Please review category definitions carefully. (Catalog or home based sales products do not qualify.)

CERAMICS: Original functional and/ or non-functional works created by the artist from clay, porcelain, stoneware, and/or earthenware. Each piece must be signed if multiple pieces of the same design are displayed. No machine made or mass-produced work is permitted.

DRAWING: Includes works created by the artist using media including chalk, charcoal, pastels, pencil, wax crayons, etc., or from a fluid medium of inks applied by pen or brush. This would include art such as face painting.

FIBER: All works crafted from fibers including leather, paper, basketry, embroidery, weaving, tapestry and paper making. Machine tooling, machine screened patterns, or miscellaneous forms of mass production are NOT permitted. No factory produced wearable items, regardless of additional modification or enhancement by the artists, will be accepted.
