Winterthur’s 2024 Artisan Market Applications

Call for Artisan Market 2024 artisans! Present your outstanding wares to more than 5,000 visitors this summer at the Artisan Market in the beautiful setting of Winterthur’s garden and estate.

Events at Winterthur relate to the history, natural environment, and mission of the museum, garden, and library. Artisan Market evokes the mission of Winterthur by showcasing local artisans through a variety of handmade crafts relating to art, textiles, ceramics, glass, woodworking, antiques, and gardening as well as artisanal and small-batch gourmet goods. Each of these categories connects to Winterthur’s past, and we invite you to make a bit of your own history with us during this special weekend.
