Diploma in Fashion Design
When was the last time you had to design a witch’s costume from scratch? If you need to brush up on your sketching, sewing and design basics then this is the course for you. Home-made Halloween outfits are a great way to spend time and bond with children. They can exercise their imaginations while also trying out skills they never get to use any other time of the year.

Fireworks, bonfires, unsupervised children – this can potentially be a recipe for disaster if the adults aren’t paying attention.
