If so, the Edinburgh Kiltmakers Academy has the perfect course for you! The Edinburgh Kiltmakers Academy is launching Make a Kilt for a Loved One. This short course offers kilt enthusiasts an exclusive opportunity to be guided through the process of making a kilt from scratch. 
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.

6th/7th (Sat/Sun) April 2019: Interviews 
Interviews will be held on this weekend. This is an opportunity for you to meet course leaders. Additionally, we can check your level of sewing skills. If your sewing skills could be improved then there is plenty of time to practice before starting the course.
13th/14th (Sat/Sun) April 2019: Measuring Weekend 
You will come in with the person you wish to make a kilt for. They will be measured and you will choose your tartan. This allows us time for the tartan to arrive and to make preparations. Before the course starts we will prepare the tartan by doing calculations, chalk the front and back apron and pin half the pleats. 
4th (Sat) May 2019: Course Starts 
2nd (Sun) June 2019: Final Course Days
