About the Course

In this workshop you will learn basic fabric sculpting techniques, and will use materials and embellishments to decorate a small wooden chest, creating stunning textures and a design of your choice.

Once your project has been dried you will use a dry brushing technique to really enhance the fabric texture and surface detail using colour and shading. As always the design and colour is up to you and your imagination but examples will be available for inspiration and design guidance.

Your treasure chest will measure approximately 14cm x 9.5cm x 8cm and will be ready for you to take home at the end of the session.

No experience is necessary just bring your imagination.

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 materials are provided for you to make your project so you just need to bring yourself and your imagination.

You will receive expert tuition from Abigail Lagden, a Powertex Certified Tutor and member of the Powertex Design Team 2018.
