Course Information

You will be taken through all the steps to create your beautiful & unique weather resistant fairy house 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 your own Powertex projects at home.

Learn how to build a simple armature, sculpt using recycled fabrics & mix your own air-drying clay, before over-brushing with your choice of matt & metallic pigments to complete your fairy 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.

Please bring a packed lunch.
