2013 Alchemist Call!

Hi everyone!  Chrissy here to ask a couple question. Do you love Gauche Alchemy?  Are you irreverent, snarky, creative AND maybe just a wee bit coo-coo cachoo? If so, we want YOU!

Here at Gauche Alchemy, our goal is to support and encourage creative thought and expression by providing materials that help artists of all types and skill levels think differently about their creative pursuits. We endeavor to be the “jumping-off point” for your next great idea! We are all about upcycling, as well as digging up the best manufactured products we can find.  We are all about being inclusive rather than exclusive.

And now is *your* chance to get in on all of the fun, snark, and gauche awesomeness we pride ourselves on.  We are on the hunt for a few new faces to add to our team of Alchemists.

“What does an Alchemist do??”  I’m glad you asked!

“Alchemists” are more than just “oooh lookie what I made” and “here’s how I did it.”  Our Alchemists are teachers, crafters, artists, and enablers.  We share our knowledge as well as our projects.  We are here to inspire.  After all, we are regular schmoes too.

“What kind of workload is required of me?”

As an Alchemist, you will be required to submit 2 projects per month.  One project is for the newsletter and one is for the blog.  Occasionally, we may have special events such as swaps in which additional projects will be asked of you.

“Projects” include actual finished projects, technique tutorials, and anything related to what we do.  These posts can be about your craft space, what inspires you, how to bust a rut and so on.  Like we said, we are more than just a “creative team” who shows off pretty schtuff.

“Now how about the whole quid-pro-quo thing?  What do I get in return?”

As an Alchemist, you will receive an Alchemist “kit” that is looooooaaaaaaded with Gauche goodness.  You will also receive a discount to the Gauche Alchemy store.  There are other perks you receive but those will be discussed with you should you make the team.

“How long is my term?”

An Alchemist term is 12 months with the possibility of being invited to extend.

 

“Now where do I sign up?”

 

To apply, send the following to GaucheAlchemistCall@gmail.com by midnight Eastern Standard Time on  Tuesday, April 30th with the phrase “2013 DT Call” in the subject line.  This call is open to international aspiring alchemists too!

  1. Wish i looked like that pinup when i do my art!

  2. How much art “experience” should an aspiring alchemist have? Can we do a bit of everything? What if I don’t have a blog? (I have Instagram and Flickr, that’s where I post of my art, would they count? Inquiring (and aspiring!) minds want to know!

  3. Oops, I just noticed the date on this! Methinks I am a bit late!
