Powertex Ceremonial Elephant Sculpture - Fabric Sculpting workshop - Inky Escapades
In this Fabric Sculpting Workshop I will lead you through the construction contouring the shape and then covering in the various fabrics and then when the project is dry (this usually takes approximately 45min to 1hour) I will show you how to colour your project. Anyone with a decent level of dexterity, can create this. no experience necessary This part is the wow factor there are many different colour options that you may choose from. This course runs with a minimum of two people and a maximum of four. THE MATERIALS MAY DIFFER FROM THE PHOTOGRAPH AS ALL FABRICS AND JEWELLERYT ARE RECYCLED This project is also available as an Online Tutorial with various options on the kits Covid Safety measures in place. Powertex fabric sculpting, stone art and mixed media workshops available. Powertex is a water based, non-toxic and environmentally friendly universal medium. It is a liquid that transforms natural fabrics into 2D and 3D sculptures and is essentially a glue and paint combined. Most projects after three weeks drying time are weather resistant and can be displayed outside. This product can be messy so it is advisable to wear old clothes and remove any jewellery if possible. You will however be supplied with an apron and latex/powder free gloves along with all the materials that you need to create a very personal piece of art. You will create the project and once dry you will add the colour with varnish and pigment colours to watch the item transformed into a thing of beauty. Where possible I use recycled items and fabrics to help save our environment. Please be aware sometimes workshops finish later than the published times due to differing abilities. I will always allow time for a project to be completed. Most Workshops start at 10am.
