Ok, so I am biased.... We visit Lewis every year and love the place. The blue pig studio is on our list, a must as
somewhere to visit. We always get a warm and friendly welcome from. Jane and her husband. They will make soup on a cold day, and tea and scones always seen to be available ! The gAllery is a wonderful mix of hand crafted items, sourced locally together with Jane's mixed media work. There are many very talented artists and craft workers in the area, and this is well represented here. I very much disagree with the comments shown here. For me it really is something very special, and the goods for sale are well priced. This is high quality craft works.... Would you expect it to be cheap ? No way.

Jane is a very talented lady, very warm, a real ray of sunshine. I have spent time in her studio, working with the range of craft materials she has, pure heaven. Craft joy !

Everyone is welcome, do pop in and see them, for me.... Can't Wait for June !

This is one of a growing number of studios and art shops on Lewis. It seems to ship much of the stuff in the shop in from other craft studios, and what it makes itself is somewhat eclectic. The main impression however is that it is rather expensive: we found the same items elsewhere in other craft studios on Lewis at considerably smaller prices.

Look for a blue building on the side of the road to Gearrannan Blackhouse Village. The quirky pig sign in front will tell you that the experience inside will be memorable. Even if there is an art class going on, artist in residence Jane Harlington will welcome you to browse through hand made items such as jewelry, cards, candles, purses and framed art work. All items are in the very best of taste. Her husband Peter often has a fresh loaf of some baked treat to share along with a cup of tea.
