The second edition of Expotarta, the sugarcraft exhibition in Madrid, just ended. Back in Italy, I have the pleasant feeling that holidays give.
I had a very busy weekend, with classes and demonstrations, but the atmosphere and the great passion Spanish people have for cake decorating and sugar floristry made my job extremely likeable. Sharing one’s passions with like-minded people is so invigorating!
I’m grateful for the this year’s chances to teach classes abroad: I believe that confronting our personal experiences with people from different countries leads to mutual personal enrichment as well as to a boost in creativity.
My special thanks to Loleta and Nieves Linares, organisers of the event, for inviting me to teach at their fabulous exhibition, and to Laura Aldana Arias for impeccably translating every single word from English to Spanish, and for being the perfect assistant. Last but not least, I wish to thank all the lovely students and demo spectators, for sharing with me their love for sugar flowers.
