Powertex Statuette Workshop

Powertex Statuette Workshop

This one day workshop you will create a stunning fabric sculpture using Powertex.

25th November 2017     10.30am to 1.30pm


Throughout the day you will be taken through each step needed to make a gorgeous statuette with a bronze base colour. First you will build a foundation structure for your statuette. Then, using Powertex fabric hardener and a variety of fabrics, you will drape, fold, scrunch and twist the fabric to 'dress' your statuette.


Once dry, you will bring your statuette and the fabric texture to life using coloured pigments and a dry brushing technique.


All materials will be provided - just bring your imagination. Finished statuettes will be approximately 40-50cm tall.


£75 per person

There will be a 30 - 40 minute break for lunch, you can either bring your own lunch or there is a cafe on site and a number of shops nearby.
