Powertex Hedgehog Sculpture - Fabric Sculpted - by Inky Escapades

Horace the Fabric Sculpted Hedgehog


Come and create this fabulous 3D Hedgehog using Powertex to fabric sculpt the finish
Anyone with a reasonable degree of dexterity, can create this. no experience necessary - This is a quite challenging subject because of the repetetive nature of adding the spines
NB: This is a two Day Workshop
I will lead you through creating the armature and then adding fabric and mop head (most fabrics are recycled)
We will use a little stone art clay for the features
{It is advisable to complete this project over two days to allow for drying times

You will need to leave your Hedgehog with me for a week to allow for fully drying

In the two hour third session I will show you how to colour the Hedgehog using pigments and water based varnish ( this is the wow factor)

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 the colouring process.

Workshops start at 10am, break when all the wet work is done, so they can be dried off, and then we start the colouring, this is where the magic happens!

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.
