A margate-based glass studio run by artist Claire Orme. Claire uses her background in fine art to develop unique, bespoke and exciting glass work that combines traditional techniques with contemporary
designs. Her creative practice is often collaborative, including a recent project with artist Lindsey Mendick to produce copper foiled sculptures for an exhibition at Hannah Barry Gallery in London. Claire is keen to continue this approach and is eager to work with architects, designers, artists and anyone with a creative vision to bring their ideas to life!

A small independent business owned by Margate locals Craig & Richard.

Graduated from a background in fine arts (Central Saint Martins) before creating her successful career as a set designer. A move to Margate in 2016, set her path towards the direction of interior spaces; utilising her distinctive & signature style with the bold use of graphics & colours. Her 1st venture into this new path was the @margatelocationhouse (which she runs & manages alongside her design services). Not one too shy from taking up new talents, she has recently been delving into more traditional crafts in particular pursuing specialism in mosaics for interiors & architecture. Infusing her unique signature spin, she mainly interprets her designs for ceramic floors & signage. Amy has been commissioned for such clients as Dreamland, The George & Heart Margate, & Margate Suites (A boutique fantasy style set of hotel rooms).
A lifestyle store and design studio based in Margate. They create products, interiors, images and films that express their obsession with material, process and touch. They make thoughtfully, exploring subtle contrasts in texture and material striving to bring an honest grounding aesthetic to their work no matter the medium. They work holistically as a husband and wife team (backgrounds in sound design, photography,textiles & interior design), using their complimentary skillsets and shared vision to convey a slow beauty.
A Margate based ceramics studio for the imperfect home. Ceramicist and interior stylist Karin is behind Studio Wellesley (previously Crackden&Wonkypot) & believes in the word ‘hemtrevligt’, (which expresses more of a feeling then a word in her native Swedish language). Rather than adorning your home in a way that is on trend or follows a strict colour scheme she believes in making it your own — a comfortable place with your memories and a place for unique pieces that you love. Her ceramics are defined by this and as such tend to have organic shapes, tactile surfaces and a mixed technique approach.
A woven textile designer who works closely with a Jacquard mill in Lancashire to produce merino and recycled cotton fabrics for the interiors market. Her fabrics are recognisable for their softened hand drawn geometric patterns in a pared down colour palette. She’s sold to retail, interior designers, architects, hotels and galleries as well as working on bespoke commissions and collaborations. Customers include Heal’s, Daylesford Organic, Made, Studio Ashby, Conran and Partners, The Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation and The Tate Modern.

They work hard to create an awesome, positive, collaborative client team throughout the whole process with an eye on joy, detail and sustainable, circular materials.
