In 2000, Hannah Collison founded Inspired Creations School of Sugarcraft. For the past 15 years she has had the privilege to work with two very talented sugarcraft artist tutors Lynn Crees-Glendinning & Susan Wilcox delivering quality technical classes at two local venues.
Since March 2020, Hannah has been working from her home studio in Caterham, busy adapting her technology and teaching skills to offer high quality online, livestream, fully interactive classes. Her professionally prepared, structured lessons offer a learning experience that is just like an 'in person' class, enhanced by a perfect view using three cameras. Separately produced video tutorials are available to back up learning with no limit to the number of times you can view. 'It is important that each student gains a positive learning experience producing high quality projects from the skills taught in our classes'.
The school offers an extensive range of professionally run online cake decorating courses suitable for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels and have built a reputation for crafting excellence in cake decoration. Inspired Creations are one of the first and few to offer Online Certificate Courses for Beginners.
Whether you're keen to try out a new hobby; want to hone your home cake making & decorating skills; or are looking to start a professional career in sugarcraft, Hannah is here to help you realise your potential and have some fun along the way.
Our school began with one guiding principle - which is as relevant today as it was 21 years ago - to impart enthusiasm and instil a lasting passion and confidence for creating beautiful cakes.
