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. ************************************************************************************* October- Wednesday 4th October,  at The Croft, 28 The Village, Church Road, Flixton, Manchester,  M41 6HS Wizard, £25 ************************************************************************************* November- Wednesday 15th November, at The Croft, 28 The Village, Church Road, Flixton, Manchester,  M41 6HS Bath tub, £25 ************************************************************************************* December- Monday 4th December, at The Croft, 28 The Village, Church Road, Flixton, Manchester,  M41 6HS Santa in pyjamas, £25 ************************************************************************************* January- Monday 15th January 2018, at The Croft, 28 The Village, Church Road, Flixton, Manchester,  M41 6HS Pilot in an aeroplane, £25 (picture to follow) ************************************************************************************* February- Monday 5th February 2018, at The Croft, 28 The Village, Church Road, Flixton, Manchester,  M41 6HS Garden Gnome, £25 (picture to follow) ************************************************************************************* March- Monday 5th March 2018, at The Croft, 28 The Village, Church Road, Flixton, Manchester,  M41 6HS Easter themed girl dressed in rabbit costume, £25 (picture to follow) ************************************************************************************* April- Monday 16th April 2018, at The Croft, 28 The Village, Church Road, Flixton, Manchester,  M41 6HS Mechanic, £25 (picture to follow) ************************************************************************************* May- Wednesday 9th May 2018, at The Croft, 28 The Village, Church Road, Flixton, Manchester,  M41 6HS 3D plaque, £25 (picture to follow) ************************************************************************************* June - Wednesday 6th June 2018, at The Croft, 28 The Village, Church Road, Flixton, Manchester,  M41 6HS Clown , £25 (picture to follow) ************************************************************************************* July - Monday 2nd July 2018,  at The Croft, 28 The Village, Church Road, Flixton, Manchester,  M41 6HS To be confirmed ************************************************************************************** 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.
