EKA Tutor, Alumni and Kiltmaker
Rachel has had a varied career, doing scientific research and, latterly, as a trainer in medical research law.
All the while, sewing has been Rachel's much loved hobby. She always loved making things and throughout the first lockdown, took
the plunge! She decided to leave all that travelling for work behind her and retrain at EKA as a kiltmaker.
Rachel never imagined how kiltmaking would get under her skin. She loved it from day one, and has never looked back.
Rachel finds passing on the skills that she was taught at EKA so rewarding; playing a tiny part in keeping the craft alive.
We're so happy to welcome Rachel back to EKA this year, this time as a tutor and talented kiltmaker with a great deal of knowledge and enthusiasm to pass on to her lucky students!
