The Application process

Open Days - An EKA Taster Session

We host Open Days throughout the year, dates posted both here and across the Gordon Nicolson/EKA social media platforms and newsletter. We urge potential applicants to attend an Open Day, where they will be introduced to the team and the courses available, followed by trying out some pleating and sewing techniques! If the date/time of an Open Day doesn't suit you, please get in touch to arrange another time.

Application forms can be filled out at our Open Days/taken away and returned.


Application Process

There is a PDF downloadable form at the bottom of this page you can fill out and return via email -

Alternatively, email us to arrange a time to chat through the application process.

Please let us know as much about your sewing background and experience as possible as well as a little information about what brought you to looking to pursue kiltmaking and your intentions for your potential new skill!

We will then invite you to come in to complete a skills test if you have not previously attended an Open Day.

If you have any questions at all about the courses, what's involved, anything at all, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
