The Forge: Stall Application Form

The Forge will be located inside of the main convention hall but space will be limited, so aspiring Forge artist and crafters must first register their interest by completing this application form.

In the interest of fairness, TFNation staff will allow a minimum of 14 days before reviewing applications for The Forge.

When submitting your application, please use the box at the bottom to explain the type of items you intend to sell. If you have links to images, all the better. All arts and crafts must be family-friendly given that there will be children in attendance.

Successful applicants will receive an email inviting them to make a formal booking. Applicants who are not successful this time will be notified.

Full terms and conditions will be available at the payment stage. The key information you will need is as follows;
