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.

Workshop 85 was formed by Sophia Emmett in Newcastle NSW in 2012. Sophia Emmett completed a traineeship at the JamFactory, Craft and Design Centre in Adelaide and studied Visual Arts at Monash University, majoring in hot glass.
In recent years Sophia has become interested in making jewellery, creating each piece as a small sculptural form. Sophia enjoys the challenge of designing and making pieces that are intimate, wearable constructions. These works have evolved from her innovative approach to materials, combined with a fascination of the relationship between texture and form.
