Itch Gallery is a vibrant little gallery in the heart of Rutland, run by award winning business woman and ceramicist, Jenny Creasey.
We search high and low to find the most talented British artists & makers to bring you an eclectic range of affordable contemporary art, craft & design.
At Itch you can expect a refreshing change from the mass production of the high street, and a personal service with a smile to match. We’re a friendly little team with a true enthusiasm for what we do.
If you are looking for an artist or gallery owner to interview for a print, radio or TV feature please check out Jenny’s official media biography here.
Jenny Creasey is the winner of the Creative Business Award 2012, the 2010 Creative Leicestershire Bursary and the Enterprise Inc Business Development Award. She has exhibited her own ceramic work both nationally and internationally and also showcased work for the filming of the popular BBC television programme ‘Mary Queen of Shops.’
Born and raised in Rutland, Jenny graduated with a BA (Hons) in Design Crafts from De Montfort University in 2009 and was selected to stay on there as Artist in Residence until 2010.
Now back in Rutland, Jenny lives in Oakham with her husband, Mat and their dog, Dylan. Jenny’s experience and knowledge can help you find whatever you’re looking for.
Craft, chocolate, a good book
Seafood, aniseed and reality tv!

At Itch we aim to…
- Stock the best contemporary British art and craft
- Provide a range of prices to suit all budgets
- Support our talented makers
- Give excellent customer service
Just Ask!! It’s what we’re there for. Online or in person, we can help.
We have a great knowledge of what’s available in our gallery and in the stock room, as well as work we could source and work we’re expecting to arrive; so let us know what you’re looking for and we can help you find it. It really isn’t any trouble, in fact, it’s my favourite part of the job!
We don’t have space to show everything at once and can’t possibly put it all online. We have lots of work squirreled away in the stock room so if you can’t find what you’re looking for or want to see more work by a specific artist – just ask!
New work arrives on a regular basis. If you are looking for something in particular, let us know and we’ll get in touch as soon as something arrives that we think might suit you.
A lot of our artists and makers work to commission at no extra cost. If you can’t find the perfect piece, commissioning it may be an idea – ask a member of staff for information.
