Handmade Memories to Take Home

Our skilled craftspeople are busy year-round, producing one-of-a-kind treasures you simply won’t find anywhere else. Our mills have woven creations made from the wool of their very own sheep and alpaca; the assortment of sweaters, mittens, hats, scarves, blankets, and rugs is breathtaking. Pottery studios display and sell decorative and functional items. Seasoned woodworkers are turning cups and bowls, and producing carved masterpieces, even as you read this. Stained glass, wrought iron, handmade soaps? It’s all here. Painting, sculpture, photography, prints? How much time do you have? Watch the artisans as they work. Tour their workshops. Or sign up for an Authentic PEI Experience and try your hand at creating your own unique reminder of this one-of-kind place. But one way or another, be sure to take a little PEI magic home with you!

Craft the day Away

Visit a studio to observe the work in progress, browse for treasures in galleries and craft shops or try your hand at one our traditions with an Island craft experience. These handmade memories will bring a little of our Island magic to your home.
