As well as offering a range of products reflecting Heath Robinson’s work, the shop sells a selection of one-off items, designed and handmade by acclaimed, locally based artisans and artists.
The Maker’s Art is a contemporary range of jewellery, ceramics and textiles that complement the imagination and enchantment of Heath Robinson’s work. The makers change every six months – this is now our sixth group – adding more valuable creative partnerships and creating a distinctive decorative art marketplace at the Heath Robinson Museum.
