Meet Our Makers

We’re proud to call ourselves a town of makers – a place with a long history of craftsmanship and creativity, and home to a host of modern-day makers offering a welcome antidote to all things mediocre and mass-produced. You’ll also find regular opportunities to get making yourself, from ‘meet the maker’ days at Forge in Crown Street to experience days at Rowton Brewery.

All around the town you’ll begin to see people from Wellington’s past peering out at you through a series of painted windows. Find out who they are and what they made.

Who’s making what in Wellington today? Butchers and brewers, cake-bakers and carriage-builders, they’re all here in our directory.

Find out about some of Wellington’s historic makers and the things they made – from medieval craftsmen to Victorian manufacturers.
