I loved all of Tracey's teaching. I had a 1-2-1 session and learnt so many techniques that developed me in many ways. Fantastic teacher and so calm and patient too. After the learning I will now admire sugar flowers on cakes in a different way, as it has taught me how much effort and time and dedication is used to create a sugar flower. I was so inspired and would love to learn more. Tracey, is most definitely an expert in her field of work. A very talented person indeed.
Response from Tracey's Sugarcraft:Many thanks Manjit. It was a real pleasure to teach you
Had an absolutely fabulous morning learning to make sugar roses, pansies and other flowers. Tracey is an excellent teacher and even though my friend and I were complete beginners we came home with some beautiful flowers. I have to say I am now ‘hooked’ and will book more sessions with Tracey to learn more!
I had a very wonderful lesson with Tracey. She was very patient and completely thorough with her teaching. I have never done sugar flowers before but I was extremely impressed with what I was able to achieve in a half day course. I made a tiger lily and it looks so real!! Will definitely be booking further courses with Tracey in the future.
I spent a fascinating morning learning how to make a daffodil and tulip. Tracey really tailored the workshop to meet my needs and was both patient and generous with her knowledge. Tracey pays so much attention to detail and it shows in her award-winning flowers. I’ve come away not only with some lovely flowers but lots of tips and techniques to help me perfect my flowers as I continue to practise on my own. Would definitely recommend.
Had the most amazing day making sugar paste flowers with the fantastically talented Tracey Calvert! She has (unsurprisingly) won gold medals for her work but is also a fab and generous teacher! If you can run to a 1-2-1 it's great (I made a rose and a tiger lily) and she gives so much inspiration and oodles of tips! Wish I could put the photos on here!
This was an excellent course, Tracey was very patient and a great teacher. We learnt some very useful techniques and took home some lovely flowers. I would really recommend this session
Tracey's skill as a flower artist is inspirational. Generously sharing her knowledge, expertise and time, I learnt how to make the most wonderful roses in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
Thank you Tracey.
Brilliant course. Lots of information with loads of hints and tips. This was my first time using cold porcelain and I am thrilled with the peony produced in class.
