Add Your Listing
This is a free service offered by the Chester Municipal Heritage Society as part of our outreach to the Municipality's creative residents.
Each artist or artisan listing will provide various types of information on the individual(s) and their work. Please see the printable registration form or online application form to see the type of information being collected and used in the directory. The online application is tied directly to the directory so once approval is granted, your listing will automatically be "live".
An artist/artisan for the purpose of this project is considered to be a person who creates articles by hand, such as hand-knit articles, stained glass objects, wooden objects, tole painted items, crocheted, quilted, hooked, sewn materials, iron work, sculpture, film, photography etc., Professionals as well as amateurs are invited to participate and if you are unsure as to whether or not you would be included, please ask.
In addition to the searchable directory, this website will have "featured artists and artisans" in random rotation on the homepage as well as display dates for the Museum and Train Station Galleries.
Once approved for the directory, you will be provided with a username and password which will enable you to login and manage your individual listing.
