The company produced ceramics, furniture, carpets and textiles designed by Fry, Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell, who belonged to the circle of writers and artists known as Bloomsbury, and Henri Doucet, Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, Winifred Gill and Nina Hamnett.

The name Omega Workshops is thought to have been intended to suggest the last word in design, omega (the Workshops’ trademark) being the last letter of the Greek alphabet.

The company closed in 1919.
