Art and sculpture Workshops

We have a range of courses under the expert tuition of Rachel Pullen, Certified Powertex Trainer, qualified to teach Fabric Sculpting, Stone Art, Mixed Media and Power Wax.

What is Powertex?? Powertex is a Universal Medium. It is used for making sculptures, mixed media art, decorative objects and more.  We use it in many of our art and sculpture workshops!

You will learn loads of tips & techniques throughout each workshop to enable you to continue with your own Powertex projects at home. Where possible, we aim to use recycled materials & found objects in our workshops - feel free to bring along any you might want to include!

All courses are suitable for beginners..... you do not need to have any artistic experience or talent, just come along, have fun and give it a try!

All materials, protective gloves/aprons and light refreshments will be provided during all workshops.

    “I WAS A COMPLETE BEGINNER, I KNEW NOTHING ABOUT POWERTEX EXCEPT THAT I WANTED TO USE IT IN MIXED MEDIA WORK. THE TEACHER WAS KNOWLEDGEABLE, INFORMATIVE AND VERY HELPFUL AND FRIENDLY. THE VENUE WAS IDEAL FOR CRAFTING - A LARGE TABLE IN THE CENTRE OF A CLEAN, BRIGHT ORDERLY ROOM. THERE WERE LOTS OF EXAMPLES OF PREVIOUS WORK ON THE WALLS AND OTHER CRAFTS TOO FOR INSPIRATION. THERE WERE PLENTY OF RESOURCES TO CHOOSE FROM AND THE TUTOR GUIDED EVERYONE THROUGH THE PROCESS. IN THE TIME WE HAD. I LEARNED A LOT AND PUT SOME OF IT INTO PRACTICE VERY QUICKLY.”

    “I NEVER EXPECTED A SINGLE CLASS HAD SO MUCH SCOPE FOR CREATIVITY! REALLY INFORMATIVE CLASS AND THE SKILL WAS EASY TO PICK UP FOR THE NON-EXPERT. RACHEL WAS VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND SUPPORTED US ALL WELL, OUR FINAL PIECES COMPLETED IN 5 HOURS AND UNIQUELY DIFFERENT FROM EACH OTHER -I GOT A FEW NEW IDEAS FROM WATCHING MY CLASSMATES TOO! FROM ONE CLASS ALONE I FEEL CONFIDENT AND CAN'T WAIT TO PURSUE NEW PROJECTS INSPIRED BY THE MATERIAL. I AM VERY INTERESTED IN COMING BACK TO CRAFT MY DAY TO SEE WHAT ELSE I CAN TAKE UP.”

    “I HAD A GREAT AFTERNOON. TWO OTHER LADIES HAD CANCELLED, SO IT WAS JUST ME WITH RACHEL - I HAD HER FULL ATTENTION!! THE TWO OF US JUST SAT THERE PLAYING :-) RACHEL SEEMS TO KNOW A LOT ABOUT MANY MANY CRAFTS, SO WE SAT THERE CHATTING AND I WAS ABLE TO PICK HER BRAINS ABOUT OTHER PROJECTS AS WELL. I WAS PLEASED THAT I WAS ABLE TO COME AWAY WITH A FULLY FINISHED (BAR DRYING COMPLETELY, THAT IS) PROJECT. I HAVE BEEN ON OTHER COURSES WHERE IT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO FINISH WHAT YOU ARE DOING - AS A RESULT IT SITS IN YOUR CUPBOARD WAITING FOR YOU TO FINISH IT!! DEFINITELY RECOMMEND - RACHEL IS GREAT AND VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE.”

    “THE POWERTEX TASTER WORKSHOP IS THE THIRD CRAFT CLASS I HAVE ATTENDED WITH CRAFT MY DAY (MOSAIC WORKSHOP AND MAKING A CUSHION COVER BEING THE OTHERS) AND ANOTHER FIVE STAR SUCCESS. POWERTEX IS A FABRIC HARDENER AND IS USED TO CREATE EFFECTS TO DECORATE SURFACES (IN THIS FIRST INSTANCE A BLAND PICTURE FRAME) THAT WITH EMBELLISHMENTS, PAINTING AND GLAZING TECHNIQUES TURN THEM INTO VERITABLE WORKS OF ART. EVERYTHING PROVIDED, INCLUDING SUPERB (AND FRIENDLY) TUITION AND ALL MATERIALS. A VERY HAPPY COUPLE OF HOURS SPENT DOING THIS. CAN'T WAIT FOR THE AUTUMN SO THAT I CAN BOOK SOME MORE.”
