Roby Workshop is a multi-disciplinary art and craft studio founded by Wendy Roby. I transform old, humble and waste materials into beautiful, ordered forms. In the workshop I make modern contemporary textile works, decorative commercial prints, jewellery, accessories and sculpture. 

In the course of exploring new materials in the workshop, I often discover construction techniques or textile treatments that can be applied to practical objects. When that happens, I make a small edit products available for purchase here. I also run occasional print-and-stitch workshops and sell my work at art fairs and exhibitions. If you want to find out more about my practice sign up for my mailing list here and follow me on Instagram here.

My first solo exhibition ‘Materials, Markmaking & Minimalism’ – incorporating both artwork and products developed in my studio – launched on January 29th 2022 at Arc Arts Centre, Stockport. The exhibition ran for six weeks and included free workshops, giant embroidery for children and the opportunity to spend some mindful time adding your own stitches to a collaborative artwork of minimalist embroidery.

The Roby Workshop studio is in Houldsworth Mill, Stockport. If you would like to visit or enquire about a purchase, commission, collaboration or exhibition, drop me a line on [email protected] or message me on Instagram.
