Art of Knoydart: Original drawings and prints by Trisha Birch
Trisha takes her inspiration from the stunning landscapes and woodlands of the Knoydart peninsula where she lives. Her love for seeing abstract forms and patterns in nature influences her creative drawing process, which invites the viewer into a world of alternating perspectives.
Commissions of your favourite 'Knoydart' views are available upon request.
Hi, I'm Judy. All my jewellery is hand made from scratch in my small workshop,
using traditional silversmithing tools and techniques.
Many pieces are set with semi-precious stones, Swarovski crystals, tumbled sea glass or Whitby Jet.
Come and watch me working during your stay. Find me on the lane leading to The Lookout Restaurant and Knoydart Brewery.
KnoydART Drawings Anna Wilson
Living on the beautiful Knoydart peninsula on the west coast of Scotland, I mostly do pet and wildlife commissions working from photographs, but also other subjects such as people and landscapes. I fit in drawing around working on the family farm and being a mum. I work in graphite pencil and some pen and ink. All my drawings are very detailed, down to each hair, feather or rock! I love capturing all the different textures and trying out new techniques.
I have art prints for sale, both mounted(posted flat) and un-mounted(posted in a tube). I also have greeting cards, purchased either in singles from the local shops or in packs direct from me.

After studying pottery and ceramics in Glasgow, Isla and Rhona returned home to Knoydart to set up their own workshop and tearoom. The tearoom keeps them busy and they don't get the chance to make as much pottery as they used to so they also sell a selection of other local crafts including: stoneware pottery from Scottish potter Julia Smith; hand spun woollen throws and accessories from Laura's Loom; a range of accessories from KerrieAldo; hand made in Knoydart Soaps; and a range of products from local Knitters, Rhona, Hannah and Veronika. There is also a good selection of new Scottish interest books as well as second hand books for sale.
Laura has been designing and weaving fabric for over 25 years. She learned to weave in the US but is now based in the Yorkshire Dales. She works mainly with British wool, sourcing fleece directly from farms in the Dales and Cumbria and from right here at Kylesmorar on Loch Nevis. Laura works closely with mills in the north of England and Scottish Borders to turn the wool into yarn, blankets, scarves and socks. She also weaves bespoke pieces in a variety of fibres, producing anything from a roll of tweed to a delicate baby blanket, fine silk scarves to brightly coloured cotton teatowels. Get in touch if you’d like to commission something special.
