Introducing Marketplace

Are you interested in selling your arts or craft? Maybe you’re in the market to buy unique, handmade local art. 

Marketplace will be a page on the ACWB website where you can sell your art, and shop local from Wood Buffalo artisans. 

Pre-register today. Marketplace is almost ready. Once it’s ready, we’ll send you login details to set up your profile, so you can start selling your arts and craft through Marketplace. See pre-registration details below. 

Under Construction – Coming Soon

Marketplace is still under construction, but we’re planning to launch this brand new feature in the coming weeks. Pre-register today and we’ll let you know when Marketplace is ready for you to begin selling your arts and craft. See pre-registration details below. 

Arts Council Wood Buffalo members will be able to set up a free Marketplace profile where shoppers will have access to your marketplace to do what the love to do most: shop! 

Getting Started – Pre-Registration

ACWB Members – If you’re already an ACWB member, just visit our Marketplace Account Request page, and fill out the form. Once Marketplace is ready, we will contact you with login information, so you can create your Marketplace and begin selling your arts and craft.

Not an ACWB Member? Become an ACWB member, and your membership fees will get you access to Marketplace and much more. Learn about the benefits of membership you’ll be able to access in addition to Marketplace.

When filling out your membership registration, be sure to check “I want to participate in ACWB’s online Marketplace.”  Two things will then happen:

  • You will receive a follow up email from ACWB to walk you through all the steps of becoming a member.
  • Once Marketplace is ready, we will contact you with login information, so you can create your Marketplace and begin selling your arts and craft.

Did you know that ACWB Members also have free access to participate in the Artist Directory? If you’d like to participate, be sure to check “I want to participate in ACWB’s online artist directory” when filling out your membership registration.

Marketplace for Entrepreneurs

You’ll be able to sell your arts and crafts, track sales, enhance your brand, build your following, and realize your dream of getting your art to market. You can also view other artists’ profiles, shop, and support local artisans just like you.

Marketplace categories include: 

  • Textile (fibre arts, tapestries, rugs, quilts, etc.)
  • Decorative (ceramics, glassware, metalware, etc.)
  • Paper (paintings, drawings, origami, paper mache, etc.)
  • Functional (basketry, furniture, bookmarks, pottery, etc.)
  • Fashion (jewelry, beads, clothing, slippers, etc.)

Note about categories: These categories are intended to help shoppers sort and find products more easily. You may choose to describe your art under more than one category.

Marketplace for Shoppers

Search, sort and shop for local arts and crafts that have been made with community spirit. As an added bonus, you’ll be shopping local, supporting local, and participating in the arts community.  You might even be inspired to set up your own shop in Marketplace. Marketplace is a free resource available to all ACWB members.
