The GUILD International College (The GUILD) is hosting their inaugural community day, The GUILD Makerspace, over three Saturdays, on 27 November, 4 December and 11 December 2021 from 9.00am to 1.00pm.

The event will be held on the lush green campus grounds of Phoenix Park making it an ideal fun family outing on a weekend. Visitors can purchase crafts, home décor items, gift hampers, plants, and delicious treats all available on-site at the community event. The GUILD Makerspace also offers kids activities including introductory woodworking, art lessons, and gardening classes, and a live DJ to keep guests entertained.​​​​​​​

The GUILD Makerspace was designed as a safe space for students of the college to share their talents and develop business skills in a real world environment. The series of events aims to give students practical experience, and learn how they can craft and showcase their own unique creations which will be sold at The GUILD Shop.

The GUILD International College founder, Jayne Nadarajoo remarked, “The GUILD Makerspace is our first community market to showcase the works of all who support inclusion, diversity and sustainability. This event series will also serve as an important annual activity to provide entrepreneurship training for our students as they plan and launch their first business, The GUILD Shop.”

The GUILD International College offers an educational programme that prepares students for independent living and that provides them with the skills they need to become accomplished working adults.

The GUILD’s hands-on programme, which includes arts and crafts, design and technology, hospitality service and other trade-based skills, aims to empower students, strengthen their well-being, and give them the capabilities they need to excel in the world.
