Have a unique object created for you for $150 and support a local maker
Makers and designers are doing it tough with their usual marketplaces in galleries, shops and markets cancelled and closed during the Covid-19 lockdown.
The ADC team are working passionately to implement opportunities for our designers to recover creatively and financially, and reach out to their audiences. Help us help our makers!
Object 150 is where craft and design lovers pay $150 to have a work created exclusively for you by one of our makers. The work will be an original, unique, handmade object created during Covid-19 by the maker for you.
Our featured makers for November/December are Sophia Emmett and Helen Earl.
Total cost of the work is $150 plus GST and postage, as required. No postage charge for pick up.
ADC is not taking a commission on sales. We are passing 100% onto the maker.
Delivery time is 4 weeks from order placement. We will advise you once the item is ready for shipping by Australia Post, or pickup by appointment from Australian Design Centre.

Torunn Higgins | Herbert & Friends was founded by Sydney based artist and crafter Torunn Higgins. After a Fine Arts degree at COFA, Torunn found herself drawn to designing and creating quirky soft critters which took on a life of their own. She draws inspiration from notions of self identity, the little idiosyncrasies inside all of us, and the personas and ideas we project onto the animal and natural worlds. Torunn works with natural, recycled, and synthetic materials where needed.
