Botanical Ornaments | Em Shannon
In this workshop you'll learn how to cast plaster plant imprints using clay. During the session you will create 6 of these unique pendant style botanical ornaments. You will also learn how to add your own colours and mark making with watercolour paints and metallic markers. These keepsakes will last for many years and look great hanging on your Christmas tree! Following from the workshop you'll be able to confidently use your new skills at home with minimal materials.

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.
