Calling all crafters, makers, and artists!
The renowned Laura I. Art Gallery, a not-for-profit organization in London, is excited to announce a new challenge for all creatives. We are seeking a talented individual, or perhaps more, to masterfully recreate our beloved mascot as a captivating toy using various materials and of different sizes. These unique toys will be sold as part of our highly acclaimed environmental project, Noah’s Ark. Whether you excel in sculpting with resin, bronze, metal, plaster, Plasticine, or any other sculpture material, or if you have a passion for stitching, crocheting, and knitting, this opportunity is tailor-made for you.
We cordially invite you to bring to life the adorable toy rendition of our beloved mascot, Noah, the Planet!
This toy will be offered as a merchandise product, and we give you complete freedom to determine its size, whether it’s a compact key ring or a larger cuddly toy. However, we kindly request that you prioritize the use of recycled materials or any materials readily available in your house or studio. For instance, you may consider repurposing an old sweater for knitting or utilizing donated sculpting materials.
Who is this opportunity for?
This opportunity is perfect for artists and craft makers of all types. Whether you are a professional artist or a stay-at-home mom/dad, this is a great fit for you.
Why should you apply?
By applying, you are opening yourself up to an amazing opportunity to not only create a sustainable job for yourself but also make a positive impact. As part of our environmental project, Noah’s Ark, you will have the chance to raise awareness and combat climate change through your artistic creations. This is a unique chance to contribute to a meaningful cause while pursuing your passion. Don’t miss out on this opportunity of a lifetime.
If your toy is well-received, we offer the opportunity for you to train others to produce our Noah toy in bulk. Payment terms are flexible and can be negotiated based on your preference – you may receive incentives from sales or we can purchase a significant quantity of toys from you. Please note that we will provide further details upon further discussion.
To be considered for our project, please submit an image of the toy you created based on our mascot, Noah. Alternatively, you can bring the toy to our gallery for a better assessment of scale and quality. This will increase your chances of having your toy accepted, as it demonstrates your confidence in undertaking such a significant project. Additionally, we request that you provide the exact cost of materials used, excluding your time. Your time and experience will be valued accordingly, based on the scale of the project if you are chosen to join our team. Feel free to create one or more versions in different sizes.
Please note that we are unable to pay for your toy unless we select you as one of our artists. However, if your toy meets our quality standards, we may consider selling it through our online store and other initiatives and events. Aim to create the best Noah toy possible, and we will handle the sales for you.
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS:15th of October 2023.
