About the Course

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!!
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!.

Some workshops exceed the finish time by as much as an hour please allow for this when booking.

In this particular workshop you will create a beautiful Seahorse using the fabulous universal medium Powertex, you will be shown how to create the inner structure of the Seahorse then how to add the fabric and decorative elements, and finally how to add the colouring
There are only 12 places on this course so book early to avoid disappointment.
