Let me introduce you to the wonderful world of Powertex.
Anyone with a reasonable degree of dexterity, can create this. no experience necessary
Powertex is a water based, non toxic and environmentally friendly universal medium it is a liquid essentially a paint and glue combined and it is a fabric hardener, used to create 2D or 3D sculptures.
Where possible I use recycled products and recycled fabrics. I haunt the charity shops for 100% cotton clothes to use in my art works. I also use broken jewellery and often re-cycle and re-purpose many items.
I will supply all materials, including gloves & apron since Powertex is a messy, but extremely creative business. I will guide you through the construction/creation of the piece and the colouring process.
Workshops start at 10am, break when all the wet work is done, so they can be dried off, and then we start the colouring, this is where the magic happens!
Sometimes workshops exceed the finish time by as much as an hour please allow for this when booking.
For this workshop you will make one of these fabulous pictures using a variety of materials. There are many colour choices to choose from to truly make this piece your own - no two will look the same.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
