International Master sugar flower artist Robert Haynes will be teaching a 3-day class with us at the Sunflower Bakery Studio in Wedmore from the 31st August 2018 – 2nd September 2018. The flower subjects are The Blueberry Rose & Irish ivy.
This class is of an Intermediate to advanced level and students are required to have experience and knowledge of wired sugar flowers. Please bring along your passion and sense of humour…also your sugar flower making tools (If needed!) (A minimal supplies list will be provided which most experienced sugar artists will already have)
The cost of the class is either £450 without silicone veiners and corresponding cutters to take home, Or £600 fully inclusive please ask for details…
On this masterclass you will learn how to advance your knowledge and experience to the next level of learning under Roberts tailored tuition. With Robert’s sugar flower experience, knowledge base and attention to detail, you’ll be amazed at how much he has to share. His passion for sugar crafting is so infectious; Robert will teach you how to cut freehand petals and foliage to give that botanically correct finished result. (transferable skills for any sugar flower or foliage).
Another skill to be covered in class will be how to apply edible colours to the very delicately individually veined sugar petals, leaves and closed buds.
Light coloured garments are advisable in class to minimalize lint tarnishing the paste. Please remove jewellery prior to class.
