Keith Kilt School

 

Introductory Course to
Traditional Kiltmaking

Discover what makes a bespoke handmade kilt
by learning an age old skill!

We are proud to continue teaching this age old tradition of Handsewn Kilts and our students are taught by a qualified kiltmaker to make traditional bespoke kilts from 8 - 9 metres of Superior Tartan woven in Scotland.

Our suppliers are House of Edgar, Lochcarron, Strathmore and DC Dalgliesh. The students handstitch the pleats in the traditional fashion and only the waist is machine stitched.

Students receive a Certificate from the Keith Kilt and Textile Centre after Hand sewing a kiltsuccessfully completing your first handmade made to measure kilt.

This does not mean that they are a qualified Kiltmaker, only that they have received training at the Keith Kilt and Textile Centre. Only when they gain their certificate for the SQA Customised Award in Kiltmaking, available only from KKTC, can they state that they have trained at the Keith Kilt School. We recommend that a customer asks to see the Kiltmaker's certificate if they claim that they have been trained at the school.
