Creative Maker Artisan Categories
Creative individuals living and working in the counties of the Pennsylvania Wilds are encouraged to apply for membership in the Wilds Cooperative of Pennsylvania. Juried Artisans in the Cooperative are self-categorized. No matter what term you choose, it’s about the creative genius of residents who are passionate about what they create, who appreciate all things local, and who want to reach a broader audience.
There are two levels of Juried Artisans, Basic Membership and Professional Artisan, and three categories of artisans are eligible: visual, craft and food. Basic Members are those who are admitted with a jury score between 100-300 and Professional Artisans are those who are admitted with a jury score above 301.
