The Inventors Asylum

Make, Do, and Mend

Making is good for the soul. It gives you time to reflect and make space in your mind while you enjoy creating something new. Mindful stitching is one of the many courses we run to get you making and doing.

Don't know where to start?

We have a wide range of kits, inspiration packs, fabrics and more in our online store which we add to every month. Can't decide! Join our club and we'll pick for you sending you a new surprise every other month

Tailor made just for you

Everyone wants to be unique which is why we make products exactly how you want them. Printing screens, laser cutting, 3-d printing, vinyls, garments and more. From design to creation we're here every step of the way.
