Leigh Belfairs

Sugar Craft

Hello I am Christine the leader of the sugar craft group. I moved to Leigh in July 2011 leaving Basildon after 60 years. A neighbour in Leigh introduced me to my local u3a, this group, I had no knowledge of. With a little apprehension I went along to the meeting as a visitor. The welcome was lovely and people I have never met were so kind. The first hour we listened to a very interesting speaker.

Then the Chairperson of the u3a updated news on groups and asked if anyone would have a new group they could start. So inspired by what I had seen and experienced in such a short time I put up my hand - Sugar Craft I said. On that day I signed up and also joined Bridge lessons, out of my comfort zone but a passionate teacher and again very friendly group.

My group started Friday 21st October 2016, from 10 am until 12 noon and is a weekly group.
We have tea and sometimes try each others' cakes and it's great to share our recipes and laugh at our failures.

You don't need any tools for the first day as we will be covering the subject and I will demonstrate some easy flowers.
Just bring your U3A card and £2 50 to cover the cost of materials provided by myself for you to complete each project. Refreshment is included in this price.

You don't have to make a cake but just get involved with off the cake displays. I do help with cake covering and demonstrate this when cakes have been made.

Since starting this group we have made cakes for Easter, Christmas, Birthdays, Parasols filled with flowers, small wired sprays and spring Daffodils in pots. We are not able to show all our work on this site because of the space they consume. But we will show each project when completed and this will subsequently be replaced by the next one. We are keeping a photographic hard copy.
Unfortunately our groups are full in sugar craft but I will be happy to put any members on my waiting list.

September 2021

Hello all U3A members I am back hope we can continue the fun and colour of sugar craft. I have reduced my class to just Mondays until 2022 unfortunately can't take any more for this day.

Our first meeting back will be the 4th October 2021 10- 12 o'clock just to get us into practice the subject is Christmas cake topers, but not to difficult as we will be a bit out of touch after such a long brake.

If you wish to join in 2022 please contact U3A or enter your details onto my sheet at our monthly meeting. No experience needed to start learning this craft. I will help you all the way, your friends and family will be asking you to make and decorate there cakes.
