Thank you Jill for a lovely day in your wonderful studio and for the excellent lunch. I had no great expectation of what I might produce by the end of the class, but thoroughly delighted and surprised with my beautiful, very professional looking, spray of yellow roses.
I had not made a successful sugar flower before meeting Jill, despite many attempts following videos on YouTube. Having taken on the task of making my daughter’s wedding cake, I found Jill on this site and immediately booked my class, and I’m so glad I did. Jill is extremely talented (and patient!) and explained and demonstrated every step of the way. The whole day was so relaxed and passed in a flash.
I can thoroughly recommend the taster day, and look forward to further classes.

Wow, what can I say, Jilly, thank you so much for a fabulous day. From the start I was convinced I could not produce anything that could look like a flower. I normally have little patience, but with your exceptional patience and step by step guidance what we all achieved as new beginners was amazing and I would recommend this beginners course to anyone.

I had never attempted anything this ambitious and was astonished at what I achieved with Jill's help and expertise! The studio is great and really well equipped and she is a wonderful (and very patient!) teacher and the atmosphere is very relaxed and friendly. Each step is explained and demonstrated and before you know it, you can create something you wouldn't believe possible - I made a spray of roses, with one closed bud, one partially opened and one full bloom, and I'm still amazed that I actually made them myself! The refreshments are also a bonus with a lovely lunch included. I can't wait to go back in the New Year and try cold porcelain and I thoroughly recommend her courses :-) Mary

This was my very first time of making sugar flowers and I can’t believe what I achieved during the day. Jill explained each step and was so patient waiting for me to make each petal or leaf, even showing me again when needed. We had a wonderful home made lunch in her beautiful kitchen, with afternoon drinks and biscuits brought to us by her lovely husband during the afternoon. The day course went so quickly, I had a fantastic day and left to go home on a real high hardly believing what I had made. Jill is such a friendly talented lady, is a great teacher and puts you at ease. I have already booked for another lesson in the New Year with family, can’t wait 😊
