Makers Market FAQs
Makers and artists are encouraged to submit their work for consideration. Applications for the market open Monday, May 29 through Sunday, June 11, midnight EST. During the submission period, you can apply online for a $25 non-refundable fee. Please note: we do not consider late or incomplete applications, no exceptions.
All makers and artists that are BJU graduates, current and former BJU students, current BJU faculty/staff and former or retired BJU faculty/staff who make or design high-quality goods are encouraged to apply. M&G Makers Market focuses on artisan handmade items.
M&G is looking for high-quality handmade goods and fine art. When you submit your application, you will be asked to include a brief description of your work and 4 photographs.
The jury reviews all applications anonymously and chooses the best submissions for the Market. Work is judged according to its originality, quality, distinctiveness, and innovation.
M&G’s 7th annual Makers Market takes place on Saturday, October 7, 2023 during BJU’s Homecoming & Family Weekend.
All booths are the same size (8 ft. table) and are available for an exhibition fee. The adult fee is $65, and the student rate is $45. To qualify for the student rate, you must have a current undergraduate or graduate classification at Bob Jones University. Tables, linens, and chairs are included in the exhibition fee.
Because each maker is juried into the show separately, M&G does not permit shared booths. This enables us to design the exhibition layout in a fashion that is both organized and aesthetically pleasing.
If you cancel your booth before September 1, and we are able to secure a replacement from the waiting list, you will be refunded 50% of your booth fee. After September 1, no refunds will be given.
Even though M&G is not offering public viewing hours currently, we’re still working and serving you. Besides storing, loaning, removing, and de-installing the Collection, architectural elements and objects, we’re fundraising and preparing to move to a new location off the campus in downtown Greenville! You can learn more about those details here.
However, we are still hosting this special annual event during BJU’s Homecoming as well as offering other monthly in-person events and tours throughout the year. M&G’s Makers Market is hosted on the main and 2nd floors of the Welcome Center and outside in the Student Center.
