Otherwise Studios will be popping up in Market Square, Guelph Ontario to host an upcycled jewelry workshop where people walking by can stop, make a quick craft in a guided, drop-in basis workshop, and walk away with a one-of-a-kind creation for free. A range of materials will be available such as steel, copper, wire, bottle caps, old fabric, and more! Participants will learn a variety of skills including how to design, create, and assemble earrings and pins, as well as techniques to manipulate the materials given to achieve their desired design.

This pop-up workshop is creative, hands-on and promotes well-being and sustainability for both self, community, and the environment.

All materials and guidance will be provided, but we promote bringing your own junky treasures to upcycle into something wearable!



Otherwise Studios

Otherwise is a studio, classroom, stage, gallery space, and anything you may need it to be! We believe that a city is defined by its community, and we are committed to contributing to Guelph’s already vibrant art community in a meaningful and unique way. Otherwise is a space open to artists and creatives for collaborating, teaching, innovating, and mess-making.

We offer skill-developing events for the community and bring artists in to host their own workshops. We also book the space privately for team bonding workshops and other activities like collaborative paint nights, photoshoots, market, and even live performances.
