Powertex Gecko Wall Hung Garden Sculpture - Fabric Sculpting - by Inky Escapades
In this fabric sculpting workshop I will lead you through adding contours to an mdf shape and then how to add fabric to create wonderful peaks and troughs that will all come to life when we add the colouring once the subject has been dried. This Gecko will be weather resistant once it has been dried for approximately three weeks, which makes it suitable for a garden decoration. Let me introduce you to the wonderful world of Powertex. It is a water based, non-toxic and environmentally friendly universal medium it is a liquid essentially a paint and glue combined and it is a fabric hardener, used to create 2D or 3D sculptures. Where possible I use recycled products and recycled fabrics. I haunt the charity shops for 100% cotton clothes to use in my art works. I also use broken jewellery and often re-cycle and re-purpose many items. I will supply all materials, including gloves & apron since Powertex is a messy, but extremely creative business. I will guide you through the construction / creation of the piece and then the colouring process which is where the magic happens! You can't believe the difference it makes!! Sometimes workshops exceed the finish time by as much as an hour please allow for this when booking.
