Welcome to the Islander Handbag Workshops, located in both Edinburgh and St Andrews.

Within your session you will create your very own Islander Harris Tweed® Handbag by selecting the body colour of the bag, your favourite Harris Tweed® cloth lid and decorative straps. Be as creative or safe as you want!

Once you have selected your different components, you will begin to construct your bag with a set of tools all ready for you. 

After your bag is finished, we encourage you to show off your creation outside under our floral entrance and share with the world, your very own bespoke Harris Tweed® Islander Handbag!

The workshop class will last for approximately 60 minutes.

If you need to cancel your booking, we require 48 hours notice prior to your session, let us know on If you are outside of this notice period, we cannot issue a refund.

Please visit our Workshop FAQs for further information!

We do an array of different tweeds but we cannot promise any specific tartans/colours will be available on the day as we rotate colours often.

Minimum age to enter the workshop is 12 years old. This is non-negotiable due to health and safety.

We look forward to your visit!
