What advice can you give to decorators wanting to improve their flower-making skills? I highly recommend a hands-on workshop if you are wanting to improve your flower-making skills. My best learning experience occurred many years ago when I invested in a private workshop with a sugar flower artist I admired. I learned a great foundation in techniques, which then gave me the confidence to try making new flowers on my own and then also develop my own style. When you are comfortable using the tools and supplies and understand how they all work, it opens a whole new world in creating well- crafted sugar flowers. Once you have developed good technique, all the online classes and books are also much easier to follow, and with better results. Also, lots of practice! I still spend a lot of hours at my work bench creating and working to improve my own skills. more information
