We are a group of creatives, working individually and collaboratively from our studio space in the Engine House at Islington Mill.

We work across multiple disciplines, including: Graphic Design, Illustration, Prop Design, Event Organisation, Furniture Design, Upholstery, Textiles and Workshop Facilitation.

Between us it is possible to conceive an idea and see it through to its completion using our resources, skills and creativity, all in house. We are available to commission individually as our respective discipline, or together as a collective. Please visit our individual websites for more information, look at the Engine House Instagram feed to see what we are up to or contact us here.
