I'm trying to take my wares to market but need some help. My application to exhibit at Tent London has been accepted, now I have to pay for it...

'Since the earliest days of man's history, he has manifested the desire to decorate the things he uses and the places where he lives.'  - Claude Humbert

I'm an independent, Bristol based wallpaper designer. Yes, wallpaper designer, no there's not many of us around, we are a rare and some might say unusual breed. I design bespoke wall-coverings for your home, offices, bars and restaurants, creative spaces. Basically, if it has got a wall in it I'll cover it!

 

I have been supported by the Prince's Trust who have been mentoring me to get my business off the ground and I am well into my first year and I'm now looking to grow my business and gain some exposure for my designs. To this end I have applied and (*gulps) had my application accepted to exhibit at Tent London 2016.

 

'Located in the creative heart of East London, Tent & Super Brands London is a four-day industry event that brings together 450 exhibitors from 29 countries, including; independent designers, established brands, international country pavilions and galleries. As the destination of the annual London Design Festival over 25,000 influential; retailer buyers, architects, interior designers, press, designers and design savvy public attend to see and specify the very latest; furniture, lighting, textiles, materials and conceptual installations from around the world.' - I lifted that from their website as their words are far better than mine.  If you'd like to research Tent London further, here's their website, http://www.londondesignfair.co.uk

This is the perfect platform for me to really launch my wallpaper and show off to the bigwigs in the design world what an independent designer from Bristol, UK has to offer! Unfortunately with floor space being charged by the square metre these shows don't come cheap... This is where I am asking for help, can you help me get to Tent London please?

This is your chance to become a Patron to the Arts!

 

I'm looking for financial help to pay for the stand as well as the costs incurred as part of exhibiting, which will include printing lengths of wallpaper and samples, building a show stopping display to catch the attention of the visitors, promotional material to give to prospective clients and producing catalogues of my designs.

 

 

* 'Patronage is the support, encouragement, privilege, or financial aid that an organization or individual bestows to another. In the history of art, arts patronage refers to the support that kings, popes and the wealthy have provided to artists such as musicians, painters, and sculptors.' - Wikipedia
