We are Gertie Graham and Elaine Webster and we are Powertex Certified Tutors.
In a few hours we will teach you exciting new skills in a few stress free, relaxing hours using Powertex.
Powertex is non-toxic, water-based, environmentally friendly, and weatherproof (in three weeks) textile hardener. We can not stretch enough how therapeutic it is to work with Powertex. Do you want to forget the world for a few hours? Come along for a fun filled day, with lots of laughter, where friendships are made.
We will help you find your inner artist for you to create something unique, quirky, something you will show off with pride. Your own imagination is the limit. Best of all everybody over the age of 8 can do a beginners workshop, even people who say they are not 'crafty'.
In our little studio in Sacriston we have many different workshops available; birdhouses, fairy houses, notebooks, memory boxes, figurines, owls, bottles, geckos, canvas, dragon eggs, wands, boothouses, teapot houses, photo frames, magic hats, brooches etc.
Workshops are ideal for birthday parties, hen dues, friends get togethers etc.
We are mobile and can deliver workshops around west Durham, Stanley, Consett, Chester-Le-Street etc (DH2, DH3, DH7, DH6, DH8)
If you will be redeeming a CraftCourses gift voucher on this course, the voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
All materials are included, NO hidden costs. Workshops from £10
As Powertex is a textile hardener we will provide aprons to protect your clothes but we would suggest not to wear your sunday bests
Powertex is waterbased and does wash off your hands with soapy water but we will give you gloves to protect your hands
If you are booking a full day workshop why not book lunch in too. For an extra £5 you don't need to worry about anything. You only have to show up and enjoy your day out. Ofcourse you are free to eat your own packed lunch in our studio.
