Each module will run over four consecutive days:

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, from 9am to 3.30pm for three consecutive weeks

 The student kits ( one for each of the three modules: sugar paste, sugar flowers and piping) contain the essential equipment needed for starting your business.
