About the Course

In this workshop you will make a magical fairy house to welcome miniature mythical creatures into your home or garden. Take off the roof and you can store your precious items inside.

You will construct the base shape of your house first and then use Powertex fabric hardener, a selection of fabrics, lace and embellishments, and of course your imagination to sculpt the outside.

Once your house has been built and dried, it is time to introduce the magic with pigment colours applied using a dry brushing technique.

Powertex takes three weeks to fully cure, but after this your fairy house will be weather resistant and can be given a cosy spot in your garden.

This workshop runs 9.30am - 12pm.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above or telephone us. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
