Apple blossom twig (3 Hour) Hands-on-class by Robert Haynes
Experienced sugar flower students required for this short 3hour class, this class is of an Intermediate level, students are required to have experience and knowledge of wired sugar flowers. Please bring along your passion and sense of humour…
In this Hands-on Class of 12 students, Robert will guide you through how to make in flower paste a beautifully elegant Apple blossom flower, leaf and closed bud all attached to a realistic twig covered with sugar textured bark and lichen. Robert will show you how to master cutting and serrating leaves freehand, also giving natural movement (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. You will also be making the centre cluster of stamens and bringing them to life with edible pollen.
In this HOC sugar flower class, you will learn how to advance your knowledge and experience to the next level. With Robert’s sugar flower experience, knowledge base and attention to detail, you’ll be amazed at how much he has to share.
