A full day workshop where you will make an animal sculpture using recycled fabric & Powertex products. Chose between a Highland Cow, Sheep or Reindeer.
During the day, you will learn how to:
- build a simple armature from everyday materials;
- mix your own air drying clay;
- sculpt detail using simple techniques & tools;
- add texture using textiles;
- mixing pigments;
- dry brushing techniques.
At the end of your workshop, you will be able to take home your finished sculpture, which will then air dry over a number of days.
You will be taken through all the steps to create your beautiful & unique weather resistant sculpture under the expert tuition of Liz Dixon, approved Powertex Trainer.
You will learn lots of tips & techniques throughout the day to enable you to continue with own Powertex projects at home.
Where possible, we aim to use recycled textiles & found object in our workshops. If you have a piece of natural fibre material that you wish to incorporate into your work, then please feel free to bring this along with you & we can advise if it is suitable to use. However, all materials & protective gloves/aprons are included in the cost of the workshop.
Please can we request that long hair is tied back, & rings/bracelets are removed before attending.
