Eleanor Bolton

    About this school

    Eleanor Bolton is a British designer based in London. Eleanor trained at the Royal College of Art and started her label upon graduating in 2010. Known for her unique craft technique of coiling and hand stitching cotton rope to create sculptural yet lightweight tactile jewellery. Eleanor’s jewellery comes from her focus on an intuitive and sensitive approach to the micro details of making processes, as well as to the precise scale of the pieces. This attention to detail, combined with the innovative use of the materials define Eleanor’s approach and strong aesthetic appeal. Colour inspiration for the collections often comes from fine art and the bold use of colour and textile techniques marry to create statement tribal and nautical inspired jewellery.

    Alongside Eleanor's main practice, she also teaches a variety of rope and textile workshops both at EB HQ and in partnership with others. Recent clients have included Hole & Corner Magazine, Darkroom, Port Eliot Festival, Topshop, Shoreditch House and the V&A. Eleanor's workshops are a fun introduction to jewellery making with rope and textiles, perfect for anyone who fancies having a go with lots of hands on help.
