Straw Work and Corn Dollies hand crafted in the heart of Aberdeenshire, Scotland by Elaine Lindsay

A piece of Straw Work makes an unusual gift, whether of traditional or contemporary design, as well as being a natural, environmentally friendly decoration for your own home.

We have been featured on Channel 4’s Kirstie Allsopp’s Handmade Christmas, Sony Pictures Outlander and BBC One Drama The Escape Artist.

We are not accepting commissions at the present time.

Elaine is currently offering online classes via zoom. Please visit the What’s On to see what dates are available and get involved!

Straw Work is ideal for weddings
