I have been attending Colette’s classes for a year now and have been overwhelmed by my achievements. Colette has enabled me to make a Christmas cake that could dress any cake shop’s window, a magniﬁcent wedding cake for my sons wedding and a beautiful spray for my Aunt’s 90th birthday.
Much more than this Colette has inspired a love of the craft. Colette is an inspiring teacher, she is sensitive to the needs of her class, encouraging and challenging individuals in equal measures. The atmosphere in her classes are both relaxed but business like. She has students who have been coming for many years and I for one hope to be coming for many years.
All in all Colette is a great teacher, a warm person and a gifted practitioner.
The standard of work that emerges from in particular the advanced class is a testament to your teaching skills. Sugarcraft is one of the most challenging skills I have ever undertaken but you manage to make the class fun, uplifting and inspiring. Is doubt I have 35 years left to reach the skill levels you demonstrate but aspire to reach that standard to the best of my developing ability. Your support has helped me to raise hundreds of pounds for various charities without your help I could not have achieved this.
What can I say about Colette she is fantastic! Being a complete novice to sugarcraft I didn’t know anything. I started in September this year and feel like I have learned so much already.colette is a great teacher with lots of knowledge and patience. She goes through everything step by step and is with you all the way. She makes you feel very welcome and part of the class family. I have already produced the most wonderful Christmas cake and poinsettia and can’t wait to see what I will achieve in January.
Colette’s sugarcraft lessons are a pleasure to attend. She is aware of all her students abilities and she enables everyone to reach her high expectations. Her extensive knowledge of the subject is enlightening and she encourages you to try new and challenging projects, producing ﬂowers and arrangements to be proud of.
I have studied sugarcraft with Colette for the past serval years and have found her to be very knowledgeable and a patient teacher. Her teaching style is both relaxed and informal enough to make learning fun, yet structured and focused to ensure we achieve our objectives to a high standard. She is very skilled in the art of sugar craft and is adaptable to teaching a wide range of abilities without compromising our ﬁnished project, which is both realistic and of high quality.
Several years ago I decided I wanted a new hobby something different, I saw an advert for sugar paste flowers & thought I’d give it a go! With Colette’s help I have made some amazing creations that I am very proud of. I am not a particularly creative person but Colette has given me so much confidence. It’s not just about making cakes & flowers, for me it is also a very sociable time, I have made many new friends & had many enjoyable classes & workshops.
I can thoroughly recommend Colette’s teaching. She is very knowledgeable & all her ideas really work. Colette has helped me make some beautiful flowers, my skill level was zero but I have made a spray of sweet peas, carnations, a fabulous decorated Christmas cake & a pot of daffodils. You can confidently follow all her tips & tricks to make a fantastic realistic display.
I have been learning sugarcraft for a year now & started out as a complete novice! Over the past twelve months under Colette’s guidance I have gone from not being able to make a thing to confidently making a fab Christmas cake, spring flowers & lilies. The classes are great & extremely fun! I really do look forward to my weekly class. I am constantly learning & trying new things, here’s to the next twelve months!
I am amazed at what I have produced over the duration of the class. A spray of sweet peas & foliage. The classes are informal & enjoyable which enables me to learn & gain confidence.
Since joining the sugar craft course in September, I am very pleased with what I have learned & achieved. The classes are fun & Colette is very friendly, helpful & extremely patient. I certainly didn’t expect to produce the decorated Christmas cake in the first term I even surprised myself.
I would definitely recommend Colette’s even for beginners.
I started sugarcraft classes in September 2018 as a complete beginner. During the first term, I decorated a Christmas cake making a variety of flowers & foliage. I also learned how to marzipan & ice a fruit cake. Since then I have made a spray of sweet peas & a spray of roses both with foliage. I am really pleased with what I have achieved, many people have admired my work & said how lifelike the flowers are. Colette is very encouraging & inspiring. The other classmates are all friendly & we have a good laugh! It’s a really relaxed atmosphere but at the same time, we are learning something new & creative. I am very proud of what I have achieved with Colette’s expert teaching.
I joined Colette’s sugarcraft classes 2 years ago. I have enjoyed every class & learned a lot on my journey. You learn something every lesson & when you put your sugar flowers together it makes you feel so proud. The best thing is Colette herself she is so patient & never makes you feel silly if you do it wrong. We just have a laugh about it. She gives everyone time & encouragement. When I’m making my flowers I forget all my troubles.
