Artists and Crafters

Meet our stallholders.
On this page we showcase some of the small local businesses you may meet at the Made in Assynt Markets. Not all stallholders may be present at every market but don’t worry if you missed one or can’t make it on the day. Most of our stallholders are also online so you can browse and buy their products from home.

Blue Pool Ceramics

Bespoke ceramics inspired by the spectacular Scottish mountains and sea loch outside my garden.
With such a view Jules cannot help being drawn to colours in shades of blues, greens of the landscapes and greys of the pebbles on the beach. She loves to pick up shells, pebbles, seaweed, sea-glass, and flowers/ plants and fishbones from walks on the beach to impress into her clay jewellery. 

Loch Ewe Salt & Seaweed

We are a sea salt and seaweed company based on Loch Ewe in the beautiful North West highlands of Scotland.

Our products are high in quality and mineral and element rich. We produce and sell sea salt, seaweeds. After consulting with different experts it has assured me that I am on the right track by adding these trace elements.

We feel that for healthy nutritious food you need look no further than our wonderful seas and coastlines, so allow us to cater for you and your family’s dietary needs so don’t accept anything but L.E.S.S!

which are sourced as close to the workshop in Fodderty as possible (no felling !).
