WORKSHOP “Mixed Media Powertex Sculpture”
with Delphine & Adele
This is a fun and exciting class where students will learn how to construct a one of a kind standing sculpture (Approximately 33 cm in height). Starting with a wire armature you will learn how to flesh your sculpture with tin foil i.e. build your armature to resemble a human form. Your sculpture will then be mummy wrapped with masking tape. Next strips of T-shirt material are dipped into the Powertex fabric hardener and again mummy wrapped over the masking tape. You are now ready to dress your lady. You will then paint your sculpture with colours of your choice. Once completed you have a gorgeous one of a kind piece of art to take home with you. Your sculpture can also be kept outdoors all year long. Once you have learned how to work with Powertex your imagination has no bounds. You will be able to construct any size sculpture or artwork that you desire.
