The Make Shed was established by Claire Ambrose-Gordon, an artist/maker based in Kent. We sell an eclectic mix of sustainable clothing and fragrance. Wherever possible we use sustainable materials and source products in an ethical way. We use sustainable wools, materials made from waste including plastic bottles and recycled fabrics. We aim to create high fashion at low environmental impact.

Artists T-shirts

We work with artists and designers on a series of collaborative projects and have recently launched an artists t-shirt series. Our first collaboration was with Berlin based image maker Dana Gusman. (

Her inspiration comes from the colourful, messy, artistic walls of the city, combined with raw shaped elements and natural textures that give harmony to the composition. She is constantly experimenting with materials, colors, in different sizes and shapes, but mostly with the unique, bold textures that reshape the soft background.

We screen print by hand, reducing waste, and use 100% sustainable carbon neutral t-shirts and low impact inks. This means you can have innovative fashion knowing you are making the least impact on the environment.

We have many more collaborations coming up and are always keen to speak with new designers, artists and illustrators. Email for collaboration possibilities.


We regularly run workshops both from our maker space in Kent but also at local schools, the University of Brighton and the Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft in East Sussex. We are passionate about involving people of all ages and abilities in the art of making. The value of the arts to wellbeing and mental health are well observed and are more important than ever before with the recent difficulties of the Covid situation.
Where possible e use recycled materials and often what would be considered waste in these workshops and view them as a way of empowering and celebrating craft.
