Tutor Profile: After graduating from the Royal College of Art, Lucy Renshaw set up her own studio in the beautiful county of Derbyshire, where she works on bespoke interior design, upholstery and soft furnishing projects.

All Lucy’s products are hand-made using reclaimed materials which ensure every design is completely one off.

She's completed private commissions for Liberty London, Mint London, Colin Firths Eco-Age, Serendipity Paris, along with selling her work to many private clients and international boutique interior shops.

Exhibitions include Masion et Objet Paris, ICFF New York and Grand Designs Live UK.

One of Lucy's biggest achievements to date is the publication of her first book 'Mixed Media and Found Materials', commissioned for A&C Black.
