Meet our Magnificent Makers

Little Inventors wants children to open their eyes to the world of invention and creativity. But beyond the invention drawings, there is a unique opportunity for children and makers, designers and artists to come together and collaborate to bring children’s imagination to life.

By taking children’s ideas seriously and presenting them in a professional manner through collaboration with skilled makers, we will help showcase children’s original ideas, perspectives and voices.

We also want to challenge the skills and experience of adult makers, and encourage them to push beyond their own limits by engaging with the highly imaginative and unhindered minds of young children.

It is often an articulation of surface that is dense with information as a way to communicate the relationship between technology and humanity.

I make things. If it can be imagined I can bring it to life. I work across mediums using whatever materials are needed to realise the idea. I love a challenge, and I love the process of developing something, from an idea, to a tangible object. This is what gets me jumping out of bed in the morning.

Hi, I am Aishwarya (Aish) currently pursuing my MA in Innovation Management at Central Saint Martins, London. 
I have always been fascinated by kids and how they could imagine and visualise so wild. For one of my internships, I was responsible for an creative artwork in a renowned library kid's space in order to engage them and encourage them to read books.
Also, I designed a kid's lamp shade to help kids have better sleep while they are alone. To teach them values such as sharing, care and compassion.
