Powertex Butterfly or Dragonfly Garden Sculpture - 3D - Fabric Sculpting - by Inky Escapades
In this fabric sculpting workshop I will lead you through the construction process of your Butterfly or Dragonfly then how to add fabric to the body and wings. The project will then be dried off for you to be able to colour it. Please advise by email or message which of the two sculptures you would like to create If more than one person is attending and the choices are different for each person this will result in a longer workshop as each sculpture differs in structural design so needs extra explanation. If this is the case then there will be extra fees to be paid on the day if the course runs over the usual time frame. I can supply a fibre glass pole for you to display the Butterfly or Dragonfly on or a wall hung bracket. Please advise at time of booking. 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.
