Festive Robin Decorations by Curiously Contrary

About the Course

Create a beautiful robin decoration for your home this festive season.

In this online workshop you will learn basic fabric sculpting techniques to create textures on your robin using fabrics and other materials along with a fabric hardener. This project can be completed using any of the fabric hardeners that are available, i.e. Powertex, Paverpol, Sculptin.

Once your robin has dried, I will then demonstrate my colouring technique which will allow you to really enhance the detail and textures using colours and shading.

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.

This workshop can also be purchased with a project kit that provides everything you need to create the robin decoration shown. Please click on the 'see more from this course organiser' button at the bottom of the page to find this option.
