Courses with Alan Dunn, Visiting Guest Instructor

We are excited to be hosting Alan Dunn who is visiting and teach you a few of his amazing sugar flower projects.

Alan Dunn is known for his unique and realistic sugar flowers. He taught himself initially from Australian cake decorating books and then attended several sugar flower classes. It was through these early classes that he was introduced to The British Sugarcraft Guild by his tutor Margaret Morland who was the secretary of the Northumbria branch of the guild.

Leaving school aged 16 he went on to study full-time Bakery/Confectionery student of The City and Guilds Bakery and Flour Confectionery 120 and 121. It was during this period aged 17, that he gave his very first demonstration to the Whickham and Gateshead Branch of The British Sugarcraft Guild. He soon realised that he enjoyed demonstrating and teaching as much as the craft itself - and it was not long before the word had spread around the country to other branches of the guild. It was also during this early stage that he trained to become an accredited demonstrator for the guild. At around the same time, he was lucky enough to attend a class by Tombi Peck, a founder member of the Guild and author of one of the books he had been teaching himself from. He attended several of Tombi's classes and gradually they became great friends.

Alan has taught extensively throughout the U.K and in also in America, Canada, Japan, Holland, Sweden, Denmark, The Channel Islands, Brazil, SouthAfrica, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, South Korea, Spain, Russia, Bulgaria, Italy, Switzerland, Germany and Portugal. His work can often be seen on display on the Table of Honour at sugarcraft exhibitions. Alan has written 18 books on the art of flower making and cake decorating and co-authored another three books with Tombi Peck and Tony Warren. He has also had numerous articles over the years published in The British Sugarcraft Guild newsletter, Cakes and Sugarcraft, Cake Decoration monthly, American cake decorating magazine and Cake Masters Magazine. He also has two online tutorials with Craftsy.com ..... Tropical Sugar Flowers and Sugar Flowers - Off the Garden Path.
