Sat 9th of Dec Barbara Luraschi from Sweet Janis Marta figurine Cost of class $390 9 am to 5 pm
We are excited to be hosting Barbara Luraschi from Sweet Janis all the way from Italy, who is visiting to teach you a few of her amazing figurines!
Barbara's figurines have a distinct and beautiful expression and she has been recognised worldwide for her work. Learn her unique style with this sweet 'Marta' figurine one day class. With a doll-like, highly expressive face, this figurine is entirely hand made with no need for moulds and stands around 25 cm tall. It's also structurally stable and free standing and will make a huge impact on any cake it is placed upon.
All tools and materials are provided, along with lunch and refreshments. Just bring yourself!
To maximise your learning time there is no cake involved in this project so it also makes the perfect keepsake.
Class sizes are kept small at 10 people to ensure you each receive plenty of attention. All skill levels are welcome as long as you have some experience using fondant / sugar paste.
