This workshop will run over 3 hours and we will look at how porcelain clay can be used to create pieces for unique earrings, charms and necklaces.
The Workshop is divided into 3 parts.
A short demonstration will introduce the techniques involved in creating the shapes / beads from clay and how surface design can make a simple piece of clay look amazing. We will make a small charm from a ball of clay. You can shape it into any figurative shape that takes your fancy.
Choose pre-made white porcelain shapes to make jewellery components from. You will then create some sketches for how you will decorate these pieces and then you will paint or glaze them. These items will need to be fired and then posted back to you, with findings, beads or charms, (as per your design) so that you can complete the jewellery item at home.
The 3rd part of the workshop is for you to make ‘take home’ items, either ornaments, necklaces or earrings from supplied porcelain shapes, beads and charms. You will take home up to 4 wearable items of jewellery and / or ornaments. Surgical Steel earring components will be supplied. And finally, your charm will be dry enough to decorate with ceramic paint.
Wait patiently for your items to be fired and posted back to you. It can take up to 3 weeks, depending on firing schedule.
· Workshop material fee includes package and post of a small parcel (up to 500gm)
· Participants will receive the items they glazed during the workshop within 3 weeks of the day of the workshop. The package will include jewellery findings to finish making the jewellery item.

· Pliers required for making the jewellery items will be supplied for the workshop, but not for the at home component. Participants will be advised on what pliers can be used / acquired to finish their jewellery pieces.

Open to everyone interested!
Vendor since 2019
In the not so distant past we were able to explore and engage in a creative space within the boundaries of our domestic environment. More recently with the advent of mass produced furnishings and readily available home decor, coupled with a trend toward apartment living and the rise of the dual income family then this space for the creative endeavour within the domestic sphere has all but disappeared.
In recognition of this the Guild of Objects is a space that supports and holds space for all to pursue, source or explore their own innate creativity. The Guild provides a space for artists, craftspeople and makers to sell their products. The Guild runs workshops in a beautiful home like environment that gives everyone the opportunity to explore their own creativity and finally the Guild organises and runs design, craft and art tours to Japan, Bali and France in order to provide a forum to explore the world through a creative lens.
The Guild is a space that honours the notion of Connection through Creativity.
Connections with ones creativity, connection with ones self and connection to others through mutual pursuit.
Come and visit us at 35 Smith Street, Fitzroy 3065 Australia.

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) RESPONSE
The Guild of Objects have put together an action plan to mitigate the risks from coronavirus (Covid-19).
The Guild of Objects acknowledge the health risks of people gathering together but sees events such as workshops are a vital part of our community and can continue to be a place of safety and enjoyment if everyone plays their part.
The objective of the Guild is to support Artists, Makers and Craftspeople and as such our workshops provide financial support for the artists who work with us.
At all our upcoming events we will be putting in place additional hygiene measures in order to help minimise the possibility of contamination. This will include hand washing facilities and an increase in the frequency of cleaning of shared spaces.
We have limited the number of participants at each workshop to 6 as this will ensure that we can maintain the recommended social distance between participants.
If you are ill or have been placed into home isolation the Guild will allow you to transfer into a later workshop or if you give us 48 hours’ notice we will provide a refund.
For all clients whom we are currently mentoring, we will continue to work with you. If, however you are unwell or have been placed in home isolation then we will look to using Zoom as a means of continuing your mentoring.
While we have put hygiene measures and increased our efforts to minimise contamination, attendance at our workshops is at your own risk.
We value your continued support in helping keep the Guild going during these difficult times.
Please remember that our online store remains open and will work tirelessly to ensure that there are no delays in dispatching your orders.
We will continue to update and change our policy as more information is known. Thank you for your understanding and ongoing support.
Take care everyone, these are tough times for all of us and we hope that if we all work together, we can minimise the impact of all.
