“FALL HARVEST GRAPES AND LEAVES” $130 per person admission
Grapes are harvested in fall when they're ripened and most beautiful. It's also at the point in their growth when they're sweetest and prime for dessert. Come join Peggy in this 2 1/2 hour class making the most amazing grapes and leaves. In class you will be using Isomalt, gum paste and dusting powders in beautiful layers of blues, purples and green. Once dried, we’ll wire them into bunches of grapes and add the leaves. They make a beautiful accent to any fall cake or cheese platter.
Instructor: Ruth Rickey
"STAINED GLASS" $130 per person admission
Students will learn Ruth's simple tricks for creating gorgeous stained glass effects, without using messy piping gel. While focusing on floral designs, she will show you how to convert it to baby shower and birthday designs quickly and easily.
