About Hannah Collison - (Tutor & School Owner)
Hannah has earned an admirable reputation along with prizes for her work.

She is also a cake project designer for Cake-Craft & Decoration Magazine producing regular articles on a variety of sugarcraft skills her specialty being Wired Sugar Flowers.
Hannah Collison’s passion and enthusiasm for teaching professional sugarcraft began over 25 years ago. She enrolled in a ten week evening course to learn how to bake and decorate a fruit cake for Christmas and this proved to be the start of a life changing career. In the months that followed Hannah left a successful career in banking and retrained as an adult education teacher. From this she went on to teach the art and techniques of sugarcraft and in 2000 set up her own school Inspired Creations (Surrey School of Sugarcraft).
As the demand for essential sugarcraft knowledge grows so too does the need to impart expertise. Hannah and her qualified team now work closely to inspire, encourage and nurture the creative ambitions of their students.
