Mary reviewed: Cold porcelain flowers for beginners

"I thoroughly enjoyed my day with Jill - it was good to learn some new techniques, she is a very good teacher, patient and helpful, and very experienced. I was thrilled with the peony spray I took home, and am completely hooked on cold porcelain. I have ordered an airbrush, having had a go with Jill's, and although I have lots of cutters and equipment already, I am going to invest in a few more pieces, ready for my new venture. Thank you so much Jill, for inspiring me."

"I recently attended this course and thoroughly enjoyed it. Jill is an excellent tutor and shares her knowledge and enthusiasm effortlessly and patiently. I learnt so much in just one day and have been inspired to learn more. I highly recommend this course. Thank you, Jill, for a lovely day."

Janet Williams reviewed: Sugar flower making day with award winning artisan sugar artist

"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."

Nina Simmons reviewed: Cold porcelain flowers for beginners

"I returned to Jill's studio after completing the one day sugarcraft course but this time for two days. on this occasion i wanted to create a poinsettia display for my Christmas cake and I must say, what was achieved in two days surpassed my expectations. For me, (and as a novice), working with cold porcelain allowed me to be more creative and I found it more easier to handle than sugar paste. I will booking onto a third course in 2018 as I have found the experience incredibly relaxing, fun and I must say, incredibly enjoyable, thank you Jill."
