Full Day Traditional Kiltmaking Experience, Edinburgh
- Try your hand at traditional kiltmaking
- Learn the history of this unique craft in the heart of the Tartan Revival's roots
- See kiltmakers at work and learn the techniques used behind the craft
Discover the history and try your hand at the craft of traditional kiltmaking with an experienced kilt maker. Set in the heart of the Tartan Revival’s roots, this is a unique opportunity for two friends to experience a craft that has been kept secret for many years.
You’ll begin the day with an introduction from your tutor around the history behind kiltmaking including learning about the evolution of the kilt from the original belted plaid to the sewn kilt we know today. You’ll then see the different stages of kiltmaking; the secrets of the kicking pleat and the inner workings of the kilt through a demonstration.
Once you’ve both been introduced to the techniques and materials you’ll need, it’s your chance to have a go! Pleat different tartans and try your hand at the different stitches, including the invisible stitch – the sign of a very well made, hand stitched kilt.
No experience of sewing is necessary and light refreshments will be provided during the day. This is a unique, fun and educational experience, guaranteed to introduce you to a new skill not to mention leave you both with some unforgettable memories and the pleated tartan you’ve stitched!
