Goblets - Online Fabric Sculpting Workshop by Curiously Contrary



Learn how to create stunning goblets using fabric sculpting techniques. Use any shaped drinking glass as your base and create three dimensional textures using fabric and a fabric hardener. The finished result will be a fully usable drinking vessel which is water resistant and can be handwashed gently (Not suitable for the dishwasher or for soaking). In this online workshop you will learn how to work with different fabrics and embellishments to create a three dimensional design on your glasses. This project can be completed using any of the fabric hardeners that are available, i.e. Powertex, Paverpol, Sculptin. I will then teach you my own 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. When you buy my Goblet Workshop you will also get free access to my Bottle Collar Workshop allowing you to create a matching set with your goblets. 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 a kit if required. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch with me directly by sending a message using the 'message the maker' option to the right. I also have a number of other online workshops available which will teach you how to create other projects such as gnomes, garden flowers, hares, etc. You can see the full range of my workshops by clicking on the 'More from this maker' button at the bottom of the page.
