We are pleased that you have an interest in submitting your artwork to be shared and sold at The Workroom. Here at The Workroom, we seek a wide variety of media to consign in our retail space with the goal of presenting quality art and artists for the greater Wichita community. We are proud to feature many local and regional artists, and we appreciate that you have considered The Workroom to showcase your work.
Before dropping off inventory, we ask that you provide a few things for us.
1) A complete inventory sheet of what you are bringing. This should include a description or title, our cost (your payment) and date dropped off.
2) Attached consignment form, please fill it out and bring it with you.
3) Artist statement, telling a little about yourself as an artist. We love to share about you, your story, inspiration. This helps clients connect to our artists.
• 4) History/description of techniques and materials used for your work.
Inventory drop off should be anytime during store hours. We will notify artists when enough of their product has sold that it is time to restock. If you could provide an updated inventory list for restock, it helps us add your product to inventory and merchandise it more quickly.
Hours: Mon-Wed 10-5, Thur-Fri 10-8, Sat 10-5, Sun 12-5
The Workroom employs a 60/40 split, where the artist receives 60% of the retail price. Consignment artists are expected to price items to accommodate retail being priced up to a 20% discount. On Second Saturdays we partner with a variety of other local businesses and offer 15% off to customers with Second Saturday bags. Additionally, we offer a designer discount program which is an essential part of our business model and it is important that a 20% designer discount is applicable on all products offered at The Workroom. (This means if retail on an item is marked at $100, the artist receives $60 unless the item is sold to a designer, in which case, the designer retail is $80 and the artist receives $48). If you would like any guidance on pricing, feel free to ask!
Any special instructions for display should be noted. Artists are encouraged to bring in new artwork at any time. We would like to keep consignment items on display for an average of 90 days, at which time we can re-evaluate pricing, product selection and revise consignment terms. We hope to make mutually beneficial agreements with all of our artists, the agreement may be cancelled by either party at any time.
Checks are mailed to the artist after the end of each month. We will provide you with an itemized list of product sold, and any items sold at a discounted price will be noted. In the event that an artist payment is less than $10, the amount will roll over to the following month and be combined with that payment.
We host Final Friday art shows at The Workroom, and we feature artists that consign at The Workroom. We work hard to promote individual artists prior to these events via social media, local publications, free community calendars, and our monthly newsletter.
Removal of Artwork:
If artwork is removed at any time from The Workroom, the following procedure is used to maintain an accurate inventory:
1) A Workroom Shopgirl must be made aware of the removal of your artwork.
2) The item(s) must be recorded on the artistʼs inventory sheet as removed.
By signing you give permission to The Workroom to utilize your web/social media information and photography to promote my art or business.
We look forward to helping spread the word about your work and are excited to have you as part of The Workroom family!
