Register today – Be a new maker 2024

26 October 2023

Deadline: November 13, 2023

The TOAST New Makers programme offers support and mentoring for emerging makers,  provides business support, as well as a platform to sell pieces with full profits being returned to makers.

This programme is open to all emerging makers working in any craft discipline, wherever they may be in the world. Emerging makers are defined as individuals who may have been practising for any length of time but are in the early stages of their career. Applications are welcome from those who are underrepresented in craft and a range of educational backgrounds.

As part of the programme;

  • TOAST commits to selling the chosen makers’ products online and in selected TOAST shops until December 2024.
  • TOAST will provide access to mentoring sessions with members of the TOAST team throughout the year.
  • Their online magazine will profile each maker and we will promote the collection through email, social and on our New Makers page.

Winners will be selected by guest judge Kate Orne, founder of the publication Upstate Diary, and a TOAST panel.

Deadline to apply, before midday on Mon 13 November 2023.
