Designs in Mind is a creative Arts studio based in Oswestry, which works with adults with mental health difficulties to create exciting, high-end Design and products for retail and wholesale. Designs in Minds’ Members find purposeful ways to live life through the creative challenge of Design.

Last year, Designs in Mind collaborated with the high street retailer Habitat. Members still life collage designs feature on the joyful ‘Happy Habitat’ collection, which includes tea towels, oven gloves, scent diffusers, candles, plates, bowls, and place mats. Designs in Mind Members were very excited to see these products are now in store at Sainsbury’s, Oswestry. The design work was created and developed at the Designs In Mind Studio, at 17a Cross Street.

This had been an exciting benchmark moment for the design studio, as they strive to discover ways to become more self-sustaining.

Member and social media co-ordinator, Willow, says;

‘We hope you’ll love the Habitat homeware range as much as we do and support us in purchasing items that will surely brighten up your home – not only aesthetically but because they were designed locally, through the wonderful programme delivered at Designs in Mind’

Designs in Mind also have a wonderful retail Shop where you can purchase hand made and manufactured products, including cards, homewares, accessories, clothing and leather goods, all designed here in Shropshire. Right now they have a Spring sale with 3 for 2 on cards and accessories! Visit them on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 17A Cross Street, Oswestry, or at
