Be a Student
We are changing our format to fit in with your life and our changing world
But first I will let some of our current students tell you what they think .....
I’ve learnt so much from these classes, and the knowledge is invaluable, from making small characters such as teddy’s, little babies, aeroplanes to now making an armature, and finally creating a standing figure, to hanging koalas, using different techniques and how to work with the paste and using different mediums to create different textures and finally a finished piece which gives me the confidence to create my own work.
Love our monthly modeller get togethers. What we learn and produce each time is fab under Rhu’s expert teaching. But even more valuable are the lovely friends I have made over the last 4 years, we have all become really close, meeting up for non sugar get togethers, weekends away, and holidays. It has to be said that while these occasions don’t always include sugar, there is often a reasonable amount of gin involved🍸. So thank you Rhu for bringing us all together xx
I have been attending Monthly Modellers for 6-7 years (how time flies 😊). I have made life long friendships and two besties from our love of sugarpaste 😊 MM isn’t just about the models we make, it’s about meeting, enjoying and supporting like minded people in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
Cake Minds was formed in late 2019 and we started teaching in February 2020 with strong emphasis on the foundations of regular face to face meetings, but not too soon into starting we were all faced with Covid19 and we all know how much that has changed everything.
Here at Cake Minds we are not going to allow any of these situations stop us bringing you the chance to meet with others, even if that is now going to be virtually.
Now, even more than before, we need somewhere to escape the worry that we all face every day, the feeling of isolation and being alone, just having a cuppa and a chat with a small group of like-minded friends can seem like a distant memory.
We also know that learning online is not necessarily the same experience as learning face to face, and the chance to interact with the teacher can be limited
We want to change that through small classes and everyone having a Skills Support Teacher who can help you develop your skills at our informal online Skills Support Sessions where you will have the time to chat and learn.

You are bound to have questions, we hope we have answered them here, if not please contact us
Are the classes just about modelling ?
The first wave of classes are designed around growing your modelling skills, but as we grow and progress we will be inviting guest tutors to create projects for your teacher to share with you.
How do I find a teacher ?
Firstly visit the interactive map, follow the button above the FAQs
Can I dip in and out of classes
Cake Minds has been formed from the Monthly Modeller classes design, run by Rhu since 2012, which are about committing to ongoing classes rather than dipping in and out.
What do I need to bring to the class ?
An apple for the teacher !!
How do I pay ?
Payments are made directly between you and your teacher.
What if I can't make a class ?
Please inform your teacher as soon as you can, however, as with all paid courses, we would expect that you will pay for your missed face to face class.
