Kilt Making Level 1 (Intermediate)
This course offers students the opportunity to learn the craft of traditional menswear kilt making.
Students will receive practical advice and instruction on this specialist skill and learn how to sew and complete their first kilt.
2. What you will study
Course content will include assembly of a sampler miniature kilt to experience all the techniques required before progressing onto making a full sized menswear kilt. Due to the time consuming nature of traditional kiltmaking, students will be required to continue working on their kilts outwith class time to complete this course.
