Our Diwali workshops are very popular and we hold a number of these in nurseries and schools across the UK. Our Diwali workshops for schools can include the following:
- Story-telling about Rama and Sita and why Diwali is celebrated. We can add some drama into this which involves student participation.

Henna Tattoo & Design Workshop
Our popular henna workshops work well for Cultural or festival days, Art festivals and learning about Asian or African culture. Children get the opportunity to hear about how henna is made and when it is used before learning some henna techniques as a group. They can then work on their own designs before trying some henna on paper or on their hands.
All of our hennas artists are fully trained, DBS qualified and use natural, organic henna.
Holi is the Hindu festival of colours and the festival of love remembering Lord Krishna. We offer workshops that explain the background to the festival with some bollywood dancing, making use of colourful props.We are taking bookings for the next Holi celebration taking place on March 2nd 2018.

We offer term time weekly classes during school hours and after school clubs. During school hours, we may be preparing for an assembly performance, play, concert or festival.
