embroidery class in House of Mananan, Isle of Man Highland Field Sports Fair - Moy

1st and 2nd August

This is a great day out for everyone - lots to see and do, stalls to shop at, events to watch.  We will be there in one of the main runs of covered stalls, sharing space with my friend Gail (Half-A-Moon).  If you are in the area, why not come and visit.

Pictured Left - I have just returned from a visit to the Isle of Man where I was invited to teach a class on Celtic knotwork embroidery during their Celtic Festival - this picture was taken at the second class held in the House of Mananan in Peel.

Pictured Right - one of the many Manx cross dating from the Viking period - we spent a few days on the island after the festival and explored - the crosses have provided me with lots of inspiration for new designs.

Autumn classes

We will be starting a new programme of workshops on sewing, embroidery and feltmaking full details of which can be found on our other website - inchmore-workshop.co.uk - where you can also book them online and see details of other activities we get up to at The Workshop.  If the dates don't suit, please ask because if there is enough interest, we are always happy to arrange other dates - and we do one-to-one classes.

On these pages you will find information about who we are, where we are and what we do.  You can browse our online shop, find out about our feltmaking classes or look at pictures of our work. We have links to other interesting websites, 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 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 £3.50 to as much as you can afford for a large one-off wallhanging.
