The Lithia Artisans Market of Ashland (LAMA) officially opens for the 2017 season on March 18th and 19th. This post is the beginning of our seasonal call to artists. We ask you who have been holed up in your creative nook to slowly start coming out of hibernation and embrace your artisan spirit. We ask you to renew your commitment to bringing your light into the world by renewing your membership to the Lithia Artisans Market of Ashland. To all of you LAMA folk… it is time to send in your dues and start thinking about selling your awesome creations again on Calle Guanajuato.
For all you newbies out there who have thought about joining the market, now is the time to make that a reality. Follow this link to the Membership Information page of our website. There you will find the 2017 Application, Jury Guidelines, and the Members Handbook, all in pdf and word formats. My phone number is also on that page. After you have read through the page, looked over the guidelines and decided to join, call me and we will set up a time for you to join one of our jury committee meetings to show your craft. The meeting dates are also on the Membership Information page.
It is hard to believe the market starts back up in less than a month. Hope you all have had a creative, thoughtful, restful winter. I am stoked for the 2017 season at the Lithia Artisans Market on Calle Guanajuato. Look for more details about opening weekend in the upcoming blog post. Spring is just around the corner.
