Christmas twig with decorationsJanuary 2021

We are currently in a covid 19 lockdown so I am mostly working from home and only occasionally popping out to The Workshop.  Harris Tweed wallhanging

Even once we can re-open, we will continue to work from home as much as possible, so until Easter The Workshop is open by appointment only.  We will be there some days but other days will be working from home. If you want to visit please phone to book - the phone will transfer to my mobile during this time.

Online Orders

You can still order online, but items may not be sent out immediately as we will not be in every day.  The phone will divert to Ruth's mobile when we are not at the studio so if you are in a hurry for something please email or phone and we will let you know what's possible.

Newsletters

Very occasionally we send out a newsletter.  If you want to subscribe then click the little blue button in the top left of this page - or here .  This will mean you might get a newsletter once or twice a year.

 More useful perhaps would be to click on the facebook button and "like" our page as that tends to be where we post about things that are going on here, though even that is on an ad-hoc basis.

In addition to all our Anna Macneil products we also have Mary's tartan corsets and dresses (for more information on this, visit her website - www.lochdress.scot ) and Ruth's ecclesiastical work for more information on this visit www.angelforce.co.uk ) or come in and visit.     Occasionally you may find Ruth at her loom weaving tweed.   There are all sorts of different things to see if you visit The Workshop. 

On the leftRachel, Rachel is working her way through piles of Morag hats which she has cut out.   She only works with us a couple of days a week but she is very efficient and is a great help to us.

Below, Ruth is making some Callum hats.  We are really appreciating having the extra workspace though it is amazing just how quickly it fills up.  We are having to be quite disciplined about putting things away, and not having too many jobs in progress at the same time.

On these pages you will find information about who we are, where we are and what we do.  You can browse our online shop or look at pictures of our work. There is more that goes on at the Workshop - we have links to our other websites where you can find out about feltmaking classes, ecclesiastical embroidery or made to measure garments, among other things.  We also have links to shops that sell our products and other interesting sites, including how our main fabric - Harris Tweed - is made.

We use technology that spans the centuries - from a 100 year old Hattersley loom for weaving some of the tweed we use through to state-of-the-art embroidery machines and a laser cutting machine.  But we do low-tech as well!  Everything is hand finished and we are often sitting with piles of hand-sewing to do.

Visit our online shop pages to see our full range of products - wraps, capes, cushions, wallhangings, bags and purses, Christmas decorations and more.  Prices range from as little as £4 for a keyring to as much as you can afford for a large one-off wallhanging.

Privacy Policy

By now, anyone living in the UK or anywhere else in Europe is probably fed up to the back teeth with emails about GDPR.   In line with the new legislastion I have drawn up a privacy policy and it can be accessed from the menu on the left on the "about" menu button.  The important thing to say is that I don't share data with any other organisation and I only keep data that is necessary to conduct business with you - in other words, if you order something online, obviously I need your name and address so I can send it, but nothing is stored on this website, and I don't hold any financial information about you.
