All classes are individually tailored to suit each group of students attending, so that students gain the knowledge and skills which promote confidence and the ability to create their favourite chosen blooms in sugar.

Robert now teaches three levels of classes ranging from a beginners skills class (Level 1) to an intermediate level (Level 2) which students are highly recommended to attend and complete before embarking on any of the advanced Master classes (Level 3) If a student needs guidance  or advice on which standard of course to attend then they may contact Robert or the host.

A class will be conducted with a maximum of 12 students so Robert can give consistent help and attention to each valued student. Once dates, class level and flower subjects have been mutually agreed a non-refundable deposit will be payable to Sugar Flower Studio. A list will be provided detailing the silicone flower veiners and cutters required by the students to participate in the classes. It will be up to host to decide whether they wish to supply or sell veiners and cutters in a complete inclusive pack for the students or if they wish to forward the list to the students for them to purchase in advance.

Upon completion of each class Robert will present a personally signed Sugar Flower Studio Certificate to each student as a ‘Thank You’ and recognition for attending the course.
