Hello! It is beautifully sunny here in Wales. We remain on lockdown but life goes on, so I thought you might like an update.
Spring is turning into Summer so quickly. I have been working from home since a week before lockdown and the dining end of my living room has been turned into a studio in order to continue the weekly classes.
It has been wonderful to be able to remain in contact with so many of my regular students and also to virtually meet lovely new students too.
We are having a fab time and have covered so many different subjects since term began in April. We don't finish until July but have produced so much already, I can't wait to see the finished results.
Betsy and Ben
We spent a lovely four weeks making Betsy and Ben. This class will be available very soon to book as an online replay when I have finished editing the videos from the classes. The classes are taught via an online private facebook group and you are sent details of how to join when you have booked in the online shop.
The Cake International Learning Hub
I was delightred to be invited to teach in the Cake International Learning Hub. I created a wafer paper drift rose and leaves.
Even though the class has already happened, you are still able to book on the class as all of my videos are still in the private Facebook group where the class was held. I added a whole folder of photographs of equipment and finished flower pictures as well as templates. There are three videos in the group, one on how to airbrush your wafer paper and gather your equipment, the main demonstration, and an additional demonstration on how to make a bud.
Here is the link if you would still like to book on the class.
I am going to be changing the website a bit to add a section for online classes. Sadly, we are still unable to teach in person classes. Classes at the school are going to be re-scheduled with social distancing guidelines being followed, so as soon as I know when and how this can happen, I will put the information on the website. The safety of my students is of utmost importance, so if I have to turn the school into a film studio to film classes for the time being, I will. At the moment I am continuing from home as the school is set in a shared building with 17 other businesses. So I am doing my part to help our wonderful NHS staff by working from home where possible, although I obviously long to go back to in person classes as soon as it is deemed safe to do so.
In the meantime, you are still able to order my book or the tools via the shop on the website to be delivered by royal mail. There is a discount on the book available during lockdown and the code is on the shop page for the book.
Keep an eye on the website for online classes as these will be growing in number with time.
You can also subscribe to my Youtube channel where I am adding timelaps videos and tutorials for you to watch. Here is the link
Stay safe, and I will see you soon
