In a new way of delivering their tried and trusted workshops, Caramel Rock will introduce you to the world of fashion with a remote learning experience detailing the incredible stories behind the designers and learning about African textile design. Learners will be given the tools and resources to create their own pattern cutting fashion dress in the convenience of your own home.
