Using traditional techniques, craft accessories and clothing to create an Iron Age outfit.
Making garments and accessories in the past was probably a community effort, so join our enthusiastic modern community of likeminded people to try your hand at something new.
Sew away in the tranquillity of the lochside setting whilst stories and tales are told by the fire and refreshments and lunch are served from our Iron Age kitchen.
This workshop is part of a series of clothing workshops which will lead to the creation of a complete Iron Age outfit, so please check the other courses available!
