Tim Clothier, founder of Illusion Projects, grew up in the southwest of England with a strong fascination for theatrical magic.

Surrounded by tools and mechanics, his father owned a landscape equipment servicing business and a construction company. Over the years, Tim has been fortunate enough to be involved in almost every aspect of live theater, including performer, stage manager, consultant, designer and builder – and loved it all! That diversity of experience contributes to his ability to create custom fabricated equipment that excites the audience while delivering a safe, comfortable and dependable product for the performers and technical crew working with it.

Over the past decade Illusion Projects has grown as a company and in their scope of work, which includes set design, prop fabrication, exhibits and attractions.
