Two 'Just for Fun' courses at UCM

Tue, 14 Nov 2023

University College Isle of Man (UCM) has launched two ‘Just for Fun’ adult learning courses which empower students with skills to upcycle shirts, jackets and denim clothing. 

The two courses, which are being taught at UCM’s Homefield Road campus, teach adults how to repurpose clothing.

Throughout the six-hour course, adult learners are encouraged to experiment, trying new techniques and styles as they hone their skills.

Kerry Birchall, who manages adult learning at UCM, said: “Earlier in the year we launched our new adult learning offering, which is separated into courses that are Just for Fun and those for Upskilling, with the intention of adding courses to support the lifelong educational goals of our community. 

“This is a great opportunity not only to learn new skills but also to adopt more sustainable practices.”

Both courses last two weeks and cost £43.50 each.
