Artists and Makers


Artists, designers and makers can be found throughout the region working in every medium imaginable, producing everything from homewares to critically acclaimed artworks.

Whether that’s jewellers, such as University of Warwick Chemistry graduate Ruth Mary, who creates hand-stitched lace jewellery cast in silver and gold, or designer makers like 2017 London Design award winner Kate Hollowood, whose contemporary lampshades have been featured in Vogue and House & Garden.


Silicon Spa veteran Jonny Ambrose, a co-founder of Freestylegames, has swapped pixels for wood, metals, composites and carbon fibre to create sculptures inspired by his love of cars and interest in Leamington’s history of making wartime camouflage.

And the county even boasts channel 4’s Amazing Spaces Shed of the year runner-up – Oli Renison of Black Tea One Sugar – a multi-disciplinary craftsman, furniture maker, carpenter and ‘builder of things’.
