MEET OUR STUDENTS 

"I loved every minute of it. I didn’t want it to finish. Even when it did, I kept coming in!"

Meet Emma

"My gran is a seamstress, my mum worked with textiles – so it runs in my blood. "

Meet James

"I’ve learned a lot. A lot of new things to learn because I’m not Scottish... so when I came here I didn’t know anything about kilts!"

Meet Kiki

"I am going to start advertising myself as a kiltmaker as an addition to my bridalwear."

Meet Joanne

"I’ve enjoyed seeing another side to kilts and seeing how much work goes into them. You don’t appreciate how much effort goes into them"

Meet Laura

"I HAVE GROWN A REAL PASSION FOR SCOTLAND"
