Rory Hutton

Rory Hutton is an award-winning, Cambridge-based artist, print maker, and historian. Drawing upon his many inspirations, including architecture, theatre, opera, and dance, his collections of luxury silk scarves - featuring lively lino cuts and bold block designs - are testament to the strength of his passion for beautiful things and creative flair.

Since 2018, Rory Hutton has designed over 100 silk scarves for many of the UK's most prestigious arts and heritage institutions, including the Royal Opera House, The Royal Collection, British Museum, Westminster Abbey, and Victoria & Albert Museum, in response to their collections, performances, and exhibitions.

Rory was commissioned by Westminster Abbey in 2022 to create a scarf to celebrate The Queen's Platinum Jubilee; and in the same year, Rory designed scarves for The World of Stonehenge exhibition at the British Museum; Japan: Courts and Culture at The Queen's Gallery at Buckingham Palace; a range of merchandise for Glasgow's Burrell Collection, which has reopened its doors after a six-year refurbishment project; inspired! at Guildhall Art Gallery in the City of London; and a scarf for Kew Gardens, inspired by their Victorian Lily House, a collaboration with Kettle's Yard in Cambridge.

Rory Hutton: Gardening in Linocut runs from 21 November 2023 to 13 January 2024 at Shapero Modern, London, 41-43 Maddox Street, W1S 2PD (Mon-Fri 10am-6pm, Sat 11am-5pm).
