what we do

The Inventors Asylum is a small business based in North Wales. It’s two award winning designers, Bex Raven known as the Queen of Rust and Jay Raven known as Jay the Inventor, have been working in the creative industry for over 20 years.

​The aim is to revive traditional skills and techniques whilst incorporating modern technology to support this goal and the whole structure has a heavy emphasis on environmental sustainability.

​The team make everything from craft kits and dyes to detailed hand and machine embroideries, artworks and wedding dresses.

​Bex came from a background of textiles, fashion and fine art whereas Jay was metalsmithing, jewellery and computer programming. The fusion creates a dynamic that takes the team in fascinating directions and means there is definitely never a dull moment at the asylum studio.

​Film and theatre have always been dominant in their lives and prop and costume making are a large part of the studio output. One of the current projects is vintage corsets and digitising for the modern body.

Teaching through the medium of the Apocalypse gives the team the opportunity to present the skills in a different light and the display crew will also come to your event and give you a taste of what it would be like to live after the Great Reset… could you survive the end of the world?

They mean it when they say…. “give us an hour and we will change your life” so why not take the challenge.
