About the Course

Powertex art journal workshop is a very creative class that will introduce you to the magic of Powertex. This workshop will open your eyes to the endless opportunities to create. You will learn how to use Powertex, sculpt fabric and reuse, recycle and up-cycle different materials to create beautiful and unique piece of art that you will take home with you. All art journals are A5 size.

Powertex is a very versatile product. Once you start using it, you will not want to stop. It’s an environmentally friendly, water-based, non-toxic and weatherproof hardener. It can be used on all absorbent and natural materials such as textiles, paper cardboard, leather, plush or fibreglass. With it you can create or enhance your artwork, statues, paintings, jewellery, furniture and etc.

I am a certified Powertex tutor and I am very passionate about sharing my knowledge and skills to all creative souls. This workshop will take place in my home based Bright Arts Studio. There is a space for a maximum of 6 people. If you are interested or want to ask me any questions, do not hesitate to contact me. I'll answer as fast as I can.

I had bought this course for my daughter and myself. It was a fantastic day spent together learning this new technique of powertex.
Marie was very friendly welcoming and informative. She was a great and passionate teacher. We enjoyed the class thoroughly and were very proud of what we learnt. She takes you through the technique with full explanation. The course was absolutely worth the money and effort. Loved it completely

Thank you, Marie for the great time I had at your art class. I created a lovely powertex creation. Thanks for your help and hospitality.

Looking forward to creating some lovely jewellery in autumn.

My husband and myself attended an afternoon session at Marie’s workshop. Neither of us are “arty” but the session was great.
Marie was friendly, knowledgeable and extremely encouraging to us both to “experiment” with Powertex. We produced pieces of work that amaze everyone who sees the journals.
My husband will use the knowledge gained to make items for his outdoor railway and I have the confidence at last to produce mixed media products.
Thank you Marie for your inspiration and patience.

Marie is a great tutor, supportive, thoughtfull, friendly and understand her job and students really well.
I would say, I am bit crafty myself, despite that, I have learned about new technique , aquired new skills and created great piece to be proud of.
Thank you
