The Engine Room
Object will be leaving the gallery and venturing into Sydney’s most creative art and design studios in spring
As part of their Spring Series Object, the Australian Centre for Craft and Design, will
collaborate with 16 of Sydney’s creative studios for Engine Room – where these
studios will open their doors to the public to experience the beating heart of
the city’s creative industries.

1 of the following studios:
Alphabet Studio / Architect Marshall / Canvas Group / cloth

studios / Happy Soldiers / Independent illustrators Nigel Buchanan, Lew Keilar,

In the words of Object: “You are invited to come and
discover the environments in which creative ideas manifest. Meet the
designer/makers, explore their workspaces, and hear how and why they do what
they do. You might even be given the opportunity to get your hands dirty.”

Object tell us that spaces are strictly
limited for some studios (as little as 5 spots at some) and that you should register to attend just 1 studio
(you won’t be able to see more than 1 on the day unfortunately).
This is a unique opportunity to see behind the scenes on a
number of creative projects and meet the people behind some of our country’s
most innovative art, design, graphics and architecture.
