Monthly Modellers The idea behind this class is that we get together once a month (where possible) and focus on modelling one item, or a group of items together, learning how to look at shapes, and how to use different techniques. Where it can be, the model will be themed to the events happening that month, but I am also open to suggestions of what you would like to learn too. All equipment, materials and refreshments are provided, you just need to bring a box to take your model home. ************************************************************************************* May- Wednesday 10th May 2017, at The Croft, 28 The Village, Church Road, Flixton, Manchester,  M41 6HS Vegetable patch, £25 ************************************************************************************* June- Monday 12th June 2017, at The Croft, 28 The Village, Church Road, Flixton, Manchester,  M41 6HS Graduation Owl, £25 (picture to follow) ************************************************************************************* July- Monday 17th July,  at The Croft, 28 The Village, Church Road, Flixton, Manchester,  M41 6HS Cricketer, £25 (picture to follow) ************************************************************************************* August (date to be confirmed) Model to be confirmed ************************************************************************************* September- Monday 11th September, at The Croft, 28 The Village, Church Road, Flixton, Manchester,  M41 6HS Ballerina, £25 (picture to follow) ************************************************************************************* October- Wednesday 4th October,  at The Croft, 28 The Village, Church Road, Flixton, Manchester,  M41 6HS Wizard, £25 (picture to follow) ************************************************************************************* November- Wednesday 15th November, at The Croft, 28 The Village, Church Road, Flixton, Manchester,  M41 6HS Bath tub, £25 (picture to follow) ************************************************************************************* December- Monday 4th December, at The Croft, 28 The Village, Church Road, Flixton, Manchester,  M41 6HS Santa in pyjamas, £25 (picture to follow) ************************************************************************************* In these classes you will learn how to: work with sugarpaste; how to colour your sugarpaste; how to treat it to make it better for modelling; rolling basic shapes such as balls, sausages, cones etc to create models; how to avoid getting cracks; smoothing the paste to get rid of marks; using a variety of tools, both ones that you may have around the home, and basic cake decorating equipment that can be bought cheaply; and you will have the opportunity to try out equipment before you decide to buy it for yourself.

Monthly Modeller Project Fairy Tale Story Book Project This will be a set of classes similar to the Monthly Modeller single classes, but in this one, we will work on a project, building up a whole scene over the weeks to become a scene on a cake, using different techniques and modelling mediums. You do not need to have to attend all of them, but can dip in and out as you wish. This project will be based on a Fairy Tale Story Book Cake. You will need to provide a cake for the final class in the series, or order one through Marie to complete the whole scene. The cost is £25 for each class (all 7-9pm), all equipment, materials and refreshments included. VENUE : The Croft, 28 The Village, Church Road, Flixton, Manchester,  M41 6HS Wednesday 21st June 7-9pm Decorating the cake. We'll split, fill cover and decorate the cake to look like a book, and then add our characters to finish the project. ************************************************************************************* DATES FOR YOUR DIARY: Next Monthly Modeller Project dates are as follows: Monday 18th September Wednesday 18th October Wednesday 22nd November Monday 18th December
