This was booked more for curiosity about tartan than anything. Ashleigh obviously loves his work and wants to share his knowledge. A very enjoyable experience from learning some history, to designing my own tartan. I (with Ashleighs help) am now going to register the design & hopefully get the weave made up. He has patience and amazing software to make the whole process fascinating.

Thank you Ashleigh for a very interesting and comprehensive overview of the processes involved in tartan design and registration. I have enjoyed learning something new from a patient and experienced teacher! This has been my first venture into online craft courses and it was a very positive experience that I would not hesitate to repeat.

This is a fantastic course that will guide you through the entire process from concept to designing and registering your own tartan. Ashleigh is a great tutor and goes above and beyond to help you bring your vision to life and I am thrilled with the tartan I have created. Even after the course has finished Ashleigh has been at the end of a phone or e-mail to help. Highly recommended for anyone with an interest in tartan or craft.
