Made to Exchange is a great chance to make a new creative friend and receive artwork or a handmade gift from your swapping partner, who might live in the same town as you or anywhere in the world!
If you would like to register to take part in the next Made to Exchange opportunity please email Deborah at firstname.lastname@example.org with
- your contact details (include email and post)
- a note about your usual visual art form (please try to sum up in no more than 30 words, describing the things that inspire you, colours, moods and materials)
- a link to your own website address
The closing date for the next opportunity has not been set yet, so the door is open for you to simply register your interest until a full posting goes live on the site.
By registering your interest you are promising
- to keep to the announced deadlines when Made to Exchange goes live (so that everyone receives their swap in time) or if you are unable to do this please declare immediately by email that you are pulling out - this will help me to find a replacement person, so that your allotted swap partner can still take part and get a good experience form the process.
- to make a good effort at supplying something you think your swap partner will appreciate (so that nobody is left feeling disappointed)
- to write on your website about Made to Exchange and what happened which usually involves (a) including a photograph of the item you have received (b) writing a short note about what you have received and what you like about it (c) and saying how you found out about this opportunity … via this site - DappledSky.com … so other people will inspired to take part next time.
For more information on what happened last time and the process we went through just check out this post link from March, and search through the site for “Made to Exchange” and see some of the wonderful artwork and handmade crafts that people exchanged with each other, back on February 2012.
