Call to all Artists
Functional Folk Art Silent Auction

Make a contribution to the Hornby Festival by customizing a Birdhouse or Serving Tray and putting it up for silent auction at Festival events. You might have something sitting around the house you think may be a great addition to the show. In appreciation of the time and commitment artisans spend enriching the Festival we have planned to offer valuable space to advertise your other work next to your Functional Folk Art contributions.
