It is also useful if you can give us some idea of the price range you would charge for your goods in the gallery. The prices should be the price to the customer.

In your application, please would you indicate what kind of demonstration you would do?To help you, here is some general information about Mugdock Makkers and their commitments.GeneralMugdock Makkers is a group of artists, craftsmen and women. As such we expect to participate jointly in all the activities of the Makkers.Mugdock Makkers Limited is a company limited by guarantee. This means that each and every Makker individually guarantees the sum of £1 in the event that the company ceases trading.Mugdock Makkers, like all companies, has directors. Currently they are:- Richard Kingslake (Treasurer) Mhairi Sim, Irene Blackwood, Angie McLean Boyle and Lynne McGill. Lucy Jackson is the Gallery Supervisor.Provisional membersWhen a craft worker is first accepted by the Committee, and has paid the entry fee (Three months in advance: £30*), he or she will be regarded as a provisional member of Mugdock Makkers.Once any Makker has been accepted for a particular craft, the Makker may not offer for sale items in a different category without first being approved by the Board. For example, a painter, duly approved, may not offer jewellery for sale without specific approval by the Board.The exact range of articles for sale must be approved by the Board. For example, if the craft is "textiles" it must be clearly indicated exactly what kind of articles are being produced, with samples.A provisional Makker, when approved, pays three months membership fee in advance (see above).Provisional Makkers will be included on the website (www.mugdockmakkers.co.uk) and in any external events organised by Mugdock Makkers Ltd.After three months, the Board may decide to offer full membership to a provisional Makker who has achieved good sales figures.Craft items for saleEach Makker should bring items for sale to the Gallery and keep an accurate record of stock in the system set up by the Board.Items for sale should be marked with each Makker's number, together with the item’s own individual code, and the selling price. The labels provided for this have that information pre-printed.The selling price is calculated as the amount the Makker wishes to receive +50%. For example, if the Makker wishes to receive £10 for an item, it will be on sale at £15. The £5 extra represents the commission to Mugdock Makkers Ltd. As you see, £5 is 33.3% of the selling price.Where and how items are displayed in the Gallery is entirely under the control of the Gallery Supervisor. Individual Makkers do not arrange items on display.Restocking should only be done in consultation with the Gallery supervisor (email: firstname.lastname@example.org).The money owed to a Makker from sales made in the Gallery will normally be paid shortly after the end of each calendar month, by bank transfer.Gallery dutiesEvery Makker, including provisional Makkers, must be prepared to man the Gallery between 11:00 am and 5:00 p.m. (11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. in the winter) according to a rota. This will be about once a month.We have a Gallery Supervisor who mans the Gallery for two days each week. Makkers man on the other days.Every Makker must be prepared to run a craft activity or demonstration on a Saturday or Sunday according to a rota. This will be about once every three months usually instead of a shop duty day.If a Makker cannot perform his or her duty as allocated, then it is up to the individual Makker (not the Board) to arrange a swap with another Makker. To this end, every Makker is provided with a list of the telephone numbers of all Makkers. Do not rely on voicemail or email!It is most important that the Gallery is open for the hours advertised: 11:00 am to 5:00 p.m. (or 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in winter) every day.SubscriptionEvery Makker pays a subscription each month when they become a full Makker. This subscription is £10* per month, paid by standing order.CommunicationCommunications to all Makkers will normally be by e-mail.
