Jenny reviewed: Powertex Green Man or Lady Wall Art Workshop - Fabric Sculpted- by Inky Escapades

"This course was fantastic. I had never heard of Powertex but love Green man sculptures so decided on this course and am so glad I did. Karen is a great teacher and explains all steps in detail ensuring you understand everything before she moves on. There is a great balance between tutition and creativity enabling you to have a piece that you have designed yourself rather than 'put this bit here'. I really enjoyed the course and would highly recommend it. I cannot wait to hang my Green man in my garden!"

Inky Escapades responded:

" Hi Jenny Thanks so much for such a glowing review. I am so glad you enjoyed creating your Green Man and I think you did a fabulous job with him. I hope you have many years of pleasure proudly looking at him and thinking to yourself " I made that !!" Kind Regards Karen x"

Angela Waller reviewed: Powertex mixed media canvas workshop - Pensive Girl by Inky Escapades

"Amazing tutor who took the time to fully explain and show me how to create my own piece of art. The craft supplies were of a fantastic quality to work with and I thoroughly enjoyed being creative in the purpose built workshop in a home setting. Karen went to every length to ensure that we were comfortable and happy during our workshop. Communication before, during and following the workshop was exemplary as she detailed everything we could expect from the course, ensure our full understanding during and followed up with details for colouring and care of my piece. Overall a wonderful experience which I can't wait to repeat. I can't encourage you enough to try it or yourself."

Inky Escapades responded:

" Wow Angela such a glowing review I am so humbled x I really enjoyed helping you achieve your creation and look forward to seeing you again sometime in the future for more creativity Kind Regards Karen Hewitt "

"My day making the steam punk hat was a great experience and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Karen is absolutely great, she is very laid back, letting you do your own crafting but always there to help with her expertise. You do not need any special knowledge or skills as Karen shows you everything. I was totally absorbed in my own world for the whole day! I would definitely recommend this course."

"Wow. What an amazing course. Be careful, you could soon be addicted to a whole new craft. Teacher was outstanding and the activity was so much fun. The day flew by and we both learnt so much. Our dragonflies were both stunning and unique to our own style. I couldn't believe what Karen helped us achieve in such a short time with no previous experience. 100% recommended."

Inky Escapades responded:

" Wow Thank you so much for such a great review much appreciated I really enjoyed meeting you both and your Dragonflies were wonderful Kind Regards Karen"

Helen Harris reviewed: Powertex Stone Art Clay Hare (medium) Sculpture - by Inky Escapades

"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!"

Inky Escapades responded:

Kirsty Burridge reviewed: Powertex Nautical Style Mirror - Fabric Sculpting - by Inky Escapades

"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."

Inky Escapades responded:

" Thank You very much Kirsty for you lovely review I am so pleased you enjoyed your experience and I really enjoyed meeting you. I look forward to helping you create more lovely art using this fabulous medium that is Powertex! Kind Regards Karen Hewitt Certified Powertex Tutor"

Leigh Oliver reviewed: Powertex Stone Art Clay Hare (medium) Sculpture - by Inky Escapades

"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!"

Inky Escapades responded:

" Why Thank you Leigh for your very kind words The Owl is such a lovely subject I love helping people to create such a lovely garden sculpture I am very glad you enjoyed your day and I hope you get great enjoyment from looking at the beautiful Owl you created. Well done and I hope to see you for another Powertex Workshop some time in the future Kind Regards Karen Hewitt"

Bernardette Patrick reviewed: Powertex Stone Art Clay Hare (medium) Sculpture - by Inky Escapades

"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."

Inky Escapades responded:

" 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 Kind Regards Karen Hewitt Certified Powertex Tutor"
