Having won a two-year residency with ASC in 2021, artist and designer Warren Reilly was the creative director of Fashioning Our History, an exhibition staged last year as part of Brent 2020: London Borough of Culture. He has recently collaborated with The Mixed Museum on the exhibition ‘By The Cut of Their Cloth (BTCOTC)’: a new virtual exhibition exploring Brent’s 300-year mixed-race and multicultural history through art, photography and fashion.

Timber Robot Studio was established by Philip Gay at the end of 2021, with the aim of producing limited edition, one off pieces of furniture and sculpture. Focused on creating objects that people feel drawn to interact with and touch, which are both tactile and intriguing. He is also designing small batch homeware products and fine timber boxes, all carefully considered to ensure they follow the same ethos.

Contemporary artist Manuela Capraro is a Painter-Illustrator & Art Teacher of Italian origin but she lives and works in London, UK. Manuela’s art travels between contemporary and impressionism, giving space to new approaches and horizons from which she can always learn something new.
Norwegian Wood creates bespoke furniture and products tailored to suit your needs. From creative studio spaces and functional home office environments to handy under-stair storage and rocking horses, they design and make furniture and products that will last.
Laura primarily works as a projection-based installation and digital collage artist. She is heavily influenced by concepts relating to the passage of time, visual “truth” and illusion, past events or social injustices that still hold relevance today.

Originally from the US, Bethe Bronson is a mixed media artist now living and working in London. Processes and concepts relevant to photography such as presence, absence, and the passage of time, inform her work. Embracing media that contributes conceptually, Bronson explores and experiments with an array of techniques and processes that capture moments in time, yet can be altered to suit the context.
