Mural Commission, Opportunity for Guild Members

13th January, 2020
Exclusive Commission


To celebrate the move into our new space, The Workshop in Orchard Square, Sheffield Creative Guild are commissioning a new mural from one of our members. This is intended as a permanent work of art to be positioned on the outside wall of The Workshop, where it will be immediately visible to anybody entering Orchard Square.

Practicalities of the Commission:

  • We will commission an artist or artists working in collaboration to produce a piece which they feel captures the spirit of the Guild and this new space as a hub for creativity of all persuasions
  • We will consider a variety of media
  • The wall’s size is 260cm x 830cm (not taking into account doors and windows)
  • We ask that artists use the Guild’s colour pallet in their design (you can view the Guild's Brand Guidelines here)
  • Please include the words Sheffield Creative Guild (and no other text) in your design
  • We would encourage artists to consider using the Guild’s logo and the shapes it contains within their piece, but this is not essential
  • A fee of £1160 is available, which includes materials and installation

The Proposal:

  • A short (half a page of A4) written proposal responding to this brief
  • Please send any examples of previous work you feel is relevant and a rough sketch/ mood board to give a sense of how the final piece would look 
  • Include an indication of how the artist would handle the tight turnaround required to complete the brief: work has to commence on 27 January and to be completed by 3 February
  • Artists will need to provide a unique tax reference number 


This opportunity is available to Guild members only. If you are not a member and would like to learn more about what the Guild could offer you, you can take a look at our membership options here: sheffieldcreativeguild.com/membership/
