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.Do you make things?

I am an Artist and graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2004. Since 2004 I have worked in the world of theatre, not only practicing as a highly skilled prop maker for London's leading West End musicals, but also designing and building awe inspiring sets and installations. In 2012 I set up my own company called A Line Art. We specialise in interactive art events and theatre for children and their families. We tour our work to weird and wonderful places all over the UK and internationally. My main aim is to inspire and encourage creative play within families.
I teach and tutor kids from elementary to high school who, for whatever reason, can't reach their full potential in a typical learning environment! In university I studied biosystems engineering with a specialism in environmental engineering.
The Workshop Dubai is a multi-concept space that brings together an art gallery, a sustainable store, and a cafe with home-like food. We also offer interior design solutions, sell furniture, tiles, and fabrics, as well as organize events and workshops to bring together like-minded people.
I am a Design Technology teacher, Interactive installation artist, musical instrument inventor and all around maker and technologist!

Ellie works with all kinds of materials from wood to clay. She often uses waste materials, such as plastic washed up on the beach or recycled glass bottles. She likes to get her hands dirty and try out all kinds of making techniques to help her come up with her designs.
Ella Bulley is a Material Designer based in London, creating work that frequently crosses the realms of textiles, product, art and set design. Interests in material exploration developed while enrolled at Central Saint Martin’s School of Art and Design, where she completed the MA Material Futures (formerly MA Textile Futures) in 2014.
Using contextual research and material experiments intersected with artisan techniques to direct her design approach, it becomes a tool to transform the raw into the refined. The design outcomes whether objects or experiences, narrate the craft process, material research and explored themes of historical, social and cultural movements.
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.
