workshop

Private workshops are designed for hobbyists and individuals who are keen to learn a new skill. They are structured for one-on-one sessions or small groups of up to 4 people.

 

Each workshop is customised to your skill level and you decide which techniques you would like to master. Make an enquiry to start building your lesson plan.

Private workshops allow you to have focused one-on-one guidance from The Cake Botanist. Cherry pick the skills and techniques you would like to master and The Cake Botanist will  structure a bespoke course, just for you. Ideal for beginners who would like to try a variety of skills or even for Intermediate - Advanced decorators who are looking to learn new skills or further develop their existing skill set.

Tailor-made for your skill level, the course moves at your pace and you set the milestones. You decide how much you would like to cover and the course outline will be structured around your targets.

To build your workshop, you can mix and match various techniques, as required. The length and cost of the workshop will be tailored to your selection.
