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

Workshops can be booked through our Fareharbor system, available on our homepage

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!

The course will begin at 9.30am when you will have a hot drink and a chance to explore the site.
