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.

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.

Each session includes two hours tuition and all the materials and equipment you need- board, sugarpaste, colours, tools etc, all I ask it that you bring a box to take it home.

Monthly Modeller Project Christmas Igloo Cake

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 an igloo shaped cake, with models. You will need to provide a cake for the final class in the series, or order one through Marie to complete the whole scene.
