About In The Making - Aprons

In The Making - Aprons

Handmade workwear aprons for artists & makers, home & garden

In The Making – Aprons are worn by potters, printers, jewellery designers, glassware artists, sculptors, weavers, art restorers, artisan businesses, gardeners…. the range continues to develop through design collaborations with artists, observing their craft/making practice and looking for solutions for their needs. As a maker/ painter myself, I have a special fondness for my aprons, putting one on gives me a tingle of anticipation as I get ready to work!

Each apron is ethically made and skillfully sewn with natural fabrics and minimal waste. Working at my little studio, in hilly-leafy South-East London, I make aprons in small batches to “keep the joy of making” - no sweatshops, or air/sea miles here! In The Making - Aprons are made of cotton canvas, denim or drill, selected for the appropriate weights, washability and durability. Utmost attention is paid to detail, finish and strength of construction, designed to be worn for many years, ageing well and developing individual character.

I cut fabric economically minimizing waste and saving the remnants to make one off aprons and bags for the Boro Collection. No leather or plastic is used and metal ware is kept to a minimum. Packaging is a combination of recycled, recyclable, compostable paper, boxes, tape and twine.

    The apron is absolutely beautifully made and came packaged in the most attractive parcel I’ve ever received. It’s been so well thought through every detail is perfect for a potters apron - from the fabric to the rag loop. Totally brilliant! Thank you for sharing your craft and expertise

    Reviewed by JaneEnglish

    I LOVE this apron! The parcel was a treat to unwrap because as much attention to detail that had gone into the making of the apron had also gone into the wrapping of it! It exceeded my expectations. Lisa was so helpful too when I emailed her. Hugely recommended!!

    Reviewed by Matthew

    I was looking for a new ceramics apron for my wife and stumbled across this amazing apron made by Lisa. I had a few questions and Lisa sent a speedy reply so all I needed to do was order it. And it arrived in super fast time, I live in Sweden and so it arrived in time for christmas.

    The packaging was so lovely, so you get a real sense of how much pride lisa puts into her work. The apron itself is amazing, superb quality and my wife absolutely loves it. The split design is a fantastic option. The material is great quality and I kjnow my wife will be getting many years out of this.

    All in all, an amazing product, amazing service, amazing Lisa. Thanks again
