Make Your Own Leather Pouch, Fire Kit and Hood - One Day Workshop

Workshops can be booked online, click here.

Come and craft a handy leather pouch complete with traditional fire making kit, and you’ll be all kitted out for a life in the wilds.

In this one day workshop, you'll also sew a cosy hood to keep out the elements, based on patterns of prehistoric archaeological garments. Cut and hand-stitch your hood from traditional fabrics like wool using traditional bone needles, all whilst tales and stories are told by the fire.

Sitting peacefully by the loch, you’ll be well looked after with lunch and refreshments served to you from our Iron Age kitchen. You’ll go away prepared for survival in prehistoric Scotland, armed with new skills.

Book onto our other outfit workshops to complete your Iron Age Outfit!

Course details: Price £100 (+fees)

The course will begin at 9.00am when you will have a hot drink and a chance to explore the site.

Visit our the museum to see the Crannog textile and ancient drop spindles, and unique and extraordinary textile-related artefacts.

Refreshments are available throughout the day, including a traditional, hearty lunch from our Iron Age kitchen and our unique Crannog cake.

Each workshop will take place in a cosy spot by the loch giving you that special Crannog Centre experience.

The workshops will be finished by 6pm and you will leave with a couple of elements of your handmade Iron Age outfit completed to take home, as well as new skills, new connections, an information booklet, and memories of a unique immersive prehistoric experience in our stunning museum setting nestled in the hills and lochs of Highland Scotland.
