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 artworks, ceramics, jewellery and wood that complement the imagination and enchantment of Heath Robinson’s work. The makers change every six months – this is now our eighth group – adding more valuable creative partnerships and creating a distinctive decorative art marketplace at the Heath Robinson Museum.
Daphne Carnegy The ‘Maiolica’ Collection

An apprenticeship in France and further training at Harrow School of Art led her to specialise in the ‘maiolica’ technique of low-fired ceramics. Her studio is in West Hampstead where Daphne produces painted, tin-glazed earthenware, which combines an awareness of historical precedents with her passion for plants and birds
