**For Interested Artists & Vendors:
The Nature Makers Market at Blandford Nature Center is a celebration of quality craftsmanship and artisan-made goods, inspired by nature and/or made of natural materials. These one-day markets take place in May and November and feature approximately 30 Michigan artists located in four buildings at Blandford, including our modern Visitor Center and three of our historical buildings. Items for sale may include art prints, textiles, jewelry, watercolor paintings, stationery, ceramics, glassworks, wool goods, stickers, pins, wood items, botanical skin care, succulent planters, dried flowers, resin crafts, and baby items. The market is free and open to the public.
Artists for the market are chosen by a jury of Blandford staff with the goal of exhibiting a variety of high-quality goods of differing materials and aesthetics. Preference is usually given to artists who have participated with us before. Therefore, we have very limited spots available to new artists at each market. If you are interested in participating as an artist in the Spring market, please fill out the following application form by February 15th. If we have space available and our staff determines that your work would be a good fit for the market, we will contact you.
