“Well, I did it! I am now a BSG Accredited Demonstrator. Don’t get me wrong. I still have lots to learn but the hard part is done. Thank you to all the DTC team for their help, advice and support. I love sugarcraft and realised that being persuaded to complete the demonstrator training was the best thing I have done. I am excited to say the least.
It wouldn’t have been possible without the training and time the team took to show all those attending the seminar the best way forward, so again thank you. I look forward to doing many more demonstrations in the future with the BSG.”

“Earlier this year I had the opportunity to attend a BSG Demonstrator Training Seminar in the picturesque village of Diseworth. I went along feeling excited and nervous, hoping to learn more about demonstrating skills and techniques.
There were seven people on the course, and we were taught demonstrating skills, including how to set out a demonstrating table, create a time and preparation plan for a demonstration, and introducing ourselves to an audience. We were asked to bring along a piece of our own Sugarcraft work, so that we could learn how to set up a display table. There were some amazing pieces.
The training was done in a relaxed, interactive and friendly way by the training team.
On the second day we practiced what we had learnt, by giving a 10-minute practical demonstration. This was a bit nerve wracking but also a good experience and it was great to be able practice in a ’safe’ environment. We had to be prepared for this, as though we were giving an actual demonstration to a BSG Branch. Each of the demonstrations were filmed so that we could watch the playback and get one-to-one feedback with a member of the Training Team.
There was a lovely atmosphere at the seminar, we all got on well together and everyone was very supportive. It was a great event and we had the opportunity to make new Sugarcraft friends.”
