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.

I am an electronics engineer, this is my speciality but I enjoy experimenting with all kinds of making including 3D printing. I am an active member at Teesside Hackspace, a community run workshop where we make all kinds of weird and wonderful inventions. My involvement with little makers has been a collaboration with fellow Teesside Hackspace member Chris Corbett.

Claire is super passionate about the power of art and creativity in bringing communities together, making people feel happier and giving each of us an exciting outlet for our individual experiences. Claire believes that by expressing ourselves creatively and learning the problem solving skills that go with making, we gain invaluable skills which open a world of opportunity!

Hello, my name is Ella and I’m a designer. I work with materials to create objects and textiles for you and your home. I have always been fascinated by the process of making things, and I absolutely love being in workshops and factories where I can see the magic of making in action. I’ve made prints and patterns for lots of different products and companies from museums to hospitals and big department stores. I hate waste, so I love to give old furniture a new life, by using my textile designs working in collaboration with expert upholsterers.

Lewes, East Sussex, UK

I make things, or think about making things all the time. I have always been like this so I went to art college. I trained to be a graphic designer. Since then I have designed all sorts of things, patterns for children's clothes, hats, logos and children's wallpaper. I enjoy having a job that is doing what I like. In my free time I make all sorts of things and if I'm bored I do some origami.
