Who is this course for?

Course content

You will learn:

Support and feedback

Additional costs and requirements

You will be assessed at the beginning of the course to make sure you are in the right group for your needs.

All materials will be supplied but you might like to bring an apron to protect your clothes.

Will I have to do anything outside of the session?

You will not need to do anything outside of the class. However, the tutor will give you ideas and potential projects that you could do at home when practicing what you have learnt.
