Warm hats for winter days
Ruth visited Paris for a week in January along with her husband Len. Both of them were very glad of their warm hats as it was very cold. The day this photograph was taken was bright sunshine but the temprature didn't get above freezing point all day. This is Len with his Angus hat outside the church of St. Eustace about 5 minutes walk from The Louvre in Paris.
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.
