Hello again to those who already know me and welcome to those of you who I look forward to meeting.
A little background
In 2002 I set up my own Company called Perfect Petals specialising in making bridal bouquets, cake decorations and many other bespoke floral arrangements in cold porcelain and sugar. I have run workshops and demonstrations in the UK, Scandinavia, Europe, Brazil and exhibited in New York and Washington DC. I am entirely self taught, bar a two day 'Introduction to Sugarcraft' course where I found that I couldn't ice a cake to save my life - but there was potential with the flowers! My style is to create floral arrangements which are as natural as possible to make a stunning first impression.
I very much enjoy the interaction in demonstrations and workshops, so have now chosen to concentrate on the teaching side of my business, both at home and abroad working under my own name of Alyson Reynolds. This coincided with the publication of my first project book on cold porcelain and sugar flowers called Autumn Glory, details of which are available on the Books page of this website together with information on my three other books - Down The Garden Path, Blooming Lovely! and Wild In The Garden.
Under the various section headings on this site you will find:
Workshops and Demonstrations - Detailed information about upcoming workshops and demonstrations.
Books - Details of all books by Alyson Reynolds
Order online via the website or directly from me by calling 01343 870276 - Credit & Debit Cards now accepted.
Events - Info on Exhibitions, Demonstrations and various events which are taking place around the sugarcraft world.
Gallery - An opportunity to view cold porcelain and sugar arrangements to inspire you in your hobby. There is also a section on workshops where the results of students' work can be seen, however I have to be honest and say that with so much going on this page is not regularly updated but many photos are shared on the FB page - Alyson Reynolds - Cold Porcelain Flowers - so please check it out!
News - This is a general coverall to share news and information on what is current, helpful hints and highlighting anything that has caught my eye. If you know of something that may be worth mentioning on this page, let me know.

I hope you find the information within this website of interest. Remember that above all, the most important aspect of any craft is to enjoy it and value the creativity that you have inside.
