In this fabric sculpting workshop I will lead you through the construction process of your butterfly 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.
I can supply a fibre glass pole for you to display the butterfly 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.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
