Kiltmaking Workshop (Short courses)
Edinburgh Kiltmakers Academy is launching a Kiltmaking Workshop.
These short courses offer kilt enthusiasts an exclusive opportunity to be guided through the progress of making a kilt from scratch.
The Kiltmaking Workshop (Weekend) will run from 10am-5pm on Saturday and Sunday for three weekends in a row.
The Kiltmaking Workshop (Evening) will run on one evening for 12 weeks. These sessions will take place on Tuesdays between 6pm - 9pm.
This is an amazing chance to create a bespoke piece of clothing for a loved one – or yourself! Our short course could also be a taster to joining one of our longer courses. This could be the first step down the path of being a fully qualified Kiltmaker.

Until recently, kilt making methods remained the same for over a century. We are very passionate to keep this tradition alive. For those who wish to glimpse the fascinating processes involved in crafting each of our handmade kilts, we have put together a simplified guide here.
A QUALITY KILT STARTS WITH QUALITY MATERIALS...
The Edinburgh Kiltmakers Academy would not be possible without support from quality manufacturers who share our values of excellence and craftsmanship. Lochcarron of Scotland and House of Edgar both support quality kilt making by providing the academy with discounted materials.
