About the Course


Come and spend a relaxing 2 hours learning about Powertex in a small group within a dedicated studio setting.

We will be using notebooks, mirrors or mdf shapes, fabric and other 'findings' to create a unique project, which will be completed in time for you to take home.

This is an ideal starting point for those wanting to go further on their Powertex journey.

We will start the session with refreshments and a brief introduction to the Powertex medium.

I will then fully demonstrate the project before you start your own creative project and will be fully available for any questions you may have or help you may need.

This really is the beginning of an adventure as you will be truly addicted once you start....I was!!

I am a certified Powertex tutor, Creative team leader and also stock the full range of Powertex products.

New dates being released all the time. Please contact me for further details.

If placing your project in the garden please allow 3 weeks indoor drying time.

Other courses are available. Please contact me for details

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.

What's included in the price?

All equipment and materials are provided along with refreshments.

As Powertex is a fabric hardener, I recommend you wear old clothes and shoes as once set it cannot be removed. I will be providing disposable aprons and gloves for your use.

I really enjoyed this course. Despite arriving late Annette still guided me through the techniques required skilfully and I completed a dragonfly garden ornament during just a half day session. I was amazed at how it was possible to make something so presentable in such a short time and in a lovely purpose built room with lots of examples of Powertex creations for inspiration. I also came away with a basic Powertex kit for a reasonable price and am looking forward to make more outdoor ornaments. Thank you Annette.

Great teacher, so engaging, absolutely loved the workshop and so pleased with the results, never felt at all rushed, had plenty of time to play with the materials and create something I'm proud of. Highly recommend but be warned, this medium is very addictive and you'll be wanting to come back and learn more, I know I am.

Annette was absolutely lovely, patient & encouraging. The workshop was lots of fun & it was amazing to see what can be done with Powertex. Our creativity has been reignited & we've been inspired to play some more with Powertex!

Had such a brilliant time doing the introduction to Annette's Powertex Courses- so much so that I've booked in straightaway to do her Angel Workshop day. I am so thrilled with my plaque. All credit to Annette for her patience and teaching.

I had such a wondeful time 'playing' & being a Creative Goddess for the morning. Annette is so gently encouraging that she gives you the belief that you will achieve a great result - and I did. I'm thrilled to bits with my plaque & can't wait to do much more. I really loved the workshop & Annette too who shared her knowledge so generously.
Roll on the next workshop to get lost in creating my next piece. Drinks & scrummy cakes as well, all added to making me feel very looked after for the whole workshop. Brilliant!!

I had the most wonderful time on the course, and created something I didn't think I could achieve. Annette is a very lovely, relaxed and informative teacher. I cannot wait to do more!!
