workshop BASIC STANDING SCULPTURE


Learn how to make a beautiful garden sculpture from an old t-shirt in just one day. Using Paverpol (a water based, non-toxic textile hardener), a wire armature, tin foil  and strips of old t-shirt, you will create a standing figure in black or bronze.  You will take home a highlight paint in the color of your choice to apply to your sculpture after it has dried.  After a few weeks of drying indoors your statue is ready for the outdoors and completely weatherproof for all seasons.   It’s fun and easy and no experience is required.
