Powertex Stone Art Clay Woodland Creature Large Hare with certified tutor Karen Hewitt - Waterlooville.
This hare when complete is approximately 19" to 24" high.
Due to Covid Restrictions I cannot run this course until December after the lockdown
In this workshop I will show you how to create from the beginning an armature, how to clothe it in clay and shape and mold facial features.
No two creatures every look the same they all take on their own character.
Then when it is dry you will leave it with me for a minimum of three days and then return for 2 to 2 1/2 hours to complete the colouring. This is necessary to allow the clay to dry so that we do not damage it when completing the colouring. I am happy to facilitate this in an evening.
Covid Safety measures are 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.
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.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
- All materials, apron, gloves
- Beverage station supplied for you to help yourselves
- You will need to provide your own lunch if applicable, depending on which workshops you attend.

We attended our first powertex workshop not really knowing what to expect. Karen was very welcoming and immediately put us at ease. The studio was set up to comply with Covid 19 regulations whilst still achieving an informal friendly space. Karen was an informative, patient teacher and guided us through the lesson allowing us to work at our own pace and explore our own creativity whilst keeping a close eye on us.
Lunch was in her lovely garden with social distancing. We ended the course with items that we were very happy with and never thought we could actually achieve. We are already talking about what item we are going to make on our next visit. 😃.
This was a fabulous course and we really loved our Hares! they take pride of place in our lounge. Karen was an amazing teacher and instructed us throughout the day enabling us to work at our own pace but keeping us on track! The facilities are brilliant and there was a lovely garden for sitting in at lunch time, refreshments were made available and there was plenty of anti bacterial wash in all areas with paper towels to comply with current corona legislation. Thoroughly recommend and we will be back!
Response from Inky Escapades:How kind of you to leave me such a lovely review, I really enjoyed meeting you both and helping you create your fabulous Stone Art Hares. I am so pleased you enjoyed your day and that your Hares are on display in your lounge no less!
What a tremendous experience!
I am a complete novice when it comes to working with mixed media but fortunately I didn’t let this deter me. As a result, I left the course with a fabulous piece of art work and have already booked a second workshop!
Karen’s expertise and passion for her work is reflected in her calm, encouraging teaching style. The venue is comfortable and we were totally looked after by Karen and ‘her team’ throughout the day. The coffee and delicious homemade cakes were a particularly nice extra touch.
Response from Inky Escapades:Thank You very much Kirsty for you lovely review
I attended the course on 12th January 2020. I am a complete novice to all things craft, so starting from a blank canvas as far as my skill set is concerned. Karen took us through, step by step how to build our masterpiece, not just explaining how but showing us how, which was extremely useful. The course was well run and suited all abilities with each of us producing a decorative piece for our gardens.
Karen's attention to detail throughout was fabulous and she was very supportive. The workshop was a perfect creative environment and everything I needed was provided.
A lot of thought and imagination had gone into running this course and it showed in the final results.
I would recommend this course to anyone who just wants to give something new/different a go. With such an inspirational teacher everyone will produce something amazing!
Response from Inky Escapades:Why Thank you Leigh for your very kind words
Attended the course on the 28th September 2019 and it was absolutely brilliant, brilliant, brilliant.
From arriving and over the whole session Karen and her team (hubby working away) were outstanding.
We were both complete novices and managed to make 2 stunning pieces of work, that we took away with us on the day.
Everything was provided and Karen made the time to explain clearly the steps that needed to be done and what to be aware of, if you did not do specific tasks. Karen is definitely aware of how Powertex works and is someone who passes on that knowledge willingly and with flare.
Karen made us feel very welcome in her home and he workshop is a little haven at the bottom of the garden, which shows off her work with flare. The cake was too yummy to pass up.
Definitely be back.
Response from Inky Escapades:Thank You so much for your kind words and for taking the trouble to leave me a review - I am so pleased you both loved your workshop and your introduction to Powertex. Do let me know whether Asia managed to obtain extra credits based on the fabulous piece she created from her photograph
