About our Team
Throughout the years as our business has grown the need arose to take on qualified teaching staff and supports. 'Highly skilled, motivated and dedicated' are the qualities Hannah Collison looks for when considering candidates. Following selection and rigorous training, Inspired Creations is proud to introduce a team of three senior tutors.
From degrees in Cookery, qualifications in Teaching, Sugarcraft & Floristry, years of experience working in finance & catering industries, they each bring to the table a wealth of expertise and experience.
"In recent years we have seen a massive, revived interest in cake baking and decorating. Sugarcraft is an art that gives so much pleasure and the learning possibilities are endless as there are so many exciting new designs and techniques coming onto the market, it is my passion and it thrills me to teach my students new skills every day. We look forward to welcoming you"
I have a real passion to impart my knowledge and experience enabling you to enjoy the thrill and excitement of creating something you didn’t perhaps think possible. My classes are relaxed but stimulating and encouraging – I guarantee you will leave with a sense of pride in your achievements and a motivation to come back and expand your knowledge.
I am a qualified Adult Education tutor currently employed by Inspired Creations with extensive experience teaching Sugarcraft and Baking skills to mainstream adults, adults with learning disabilities and children. With a background in catering, having trained at Westminster College, I have a vast knowledge and great interest in baking and cake decorating. I am always exploring different avenues and other ways to enhance and develop my own knowledge of the art – Sugarcraft is a skill that has no end to it. This is only the beginning of your journey, just wait until you see what you can achieve... I look forward to meeting you!
I have been interested in Sugarcraft for more than 50 years!
I enjoyed cookery and Sugarcraft at school. When I got married and had my children I started attending evening classes. I made my children’s birthday cakes, Christmas cakes for my wider family and eventually ended up making all kinds of celebration cakes for friends and then, by word of mouth, for friends of friends.
I joined the West Wickham Sugarcraft club in 1982 and supported them by standing on their committee, running courses for the ‘Young Sugarcrafters’ and making exhibits for the club’s table at exhibitions. Throughout the years I have developed my skills by attending a wide range of courses, many organised by the club and even now I am learning new techniques and building upon my skills.
These days I enjoy entering competitions and I am proud to have won several awards. My particular passion is Royal Icing work and making flowers out of sugar, and now, most of all, I enjoy sharing my knowledge in these areas with others and I hope that they will get as much pleasure from the art of Sugarcraft as I have and still continue to do.
