Enchanted Forest Journal - Online Fabric Sculpting Workshop by Curiously Contrary

Enchanted Forest Journal - Online Fabric Sculpting Workshop by Curiously Contrary

About the Course

Learn how to a create magical design on a journal cover using fabric sculpting techniques.

My journal workshop is one of the most popular workshops I run and it is perfect for those who are new to fabric sculpting. It can be completed using any of the fabric hardeners that are available, i.e. Powertex, Paverpol, Sculptin.

In this workshop, you will be taught all of the basics of fabric sculpting on a two dimensional project. You will learn what kinds of fabrics work best, how to create quick textures and which embellishments you can use.

I will also share my colouring technique for applying colours that will really enhance all your textures and add depth through shading. This will help you create a truly magical looking journal.

This online workshop is presented as a series of video tutorials which you will have unlimited access to through my online school. You can access the workshop at any time and as often as you like. The workshop also includes additional information resources and a tips, tricks, and troubleshooting section.

Once you have purchased this workshop, you will be contacted with details of how to access the workshop and also with further information about how to purchase kits if required.
