Emma Wilkinson
Kilt Making
Autumn | 2018

Emma Wilkinson acquired excellent hand skills as a Textiles undergraduate at the University of Edinburgh and embroidery intern at Hand & Lock, Europe's pre-eminent embroidery atelier, and has won awards for the luxurious fabrics she has created.

Proud of her Scottish heritage, Emma is keen to apply her training to Highland dress. QEST is funding an intensive course at the Edinburgh Kiltmakers Academy at Gordon Nicolson Kiltmakers, established to ensure the traditional standards of this historic trade are kept alive, during which she will make at least six kilts using different weights of tartan and pleatings.

"I enjoy the emphasis on hand stitching in both embroidery and kiltmaking and am committed to incorporating traditional and contemporary applications of these ancient crafts in my work."
