These intensive workshops offer kilt enthusiasts an exclusive opportunity to be guided through the process of making one (or more, depending on ability) kilt from scratch. Including measuring, maths and marking up. Overseas applicants will be considered on receipt of skill level evidence.
The Intensive/Overseas workshop will run from 10am-5pm five days a week for 2 weeks
This is an amazing chance to learn kiltmaking at an intermediate level. This course could also be a taster to joining one of our longer courses. This could be the first step down the path of becoming a fully qualified Kiltmaker.
