Trusty Rusty Large-Fabric Sculpted Dog Sculpture Workshop (Two Sessions)

Come and create this fabulous Dog Sculpture.

Trusty Rusty and friends. It is an allsorts dog not a particular breed.

The “Large” size does cover specific breeds, please state which one you wish to create when you book. You will also need to bring several photographs with your dog in a sitting position.

Large size approximately 18″ tall and 11” deep.

You will be shown how to take recycled materials, add contours and turn it into this beautiful sculpture using Powertex and Recycled Fabrics.

I will lead you through the process step by step to create the armature and then how to add the fabrics. Then how to create the features in stone art clay.

Finally the colouring process which is always the Wow! factor in Powertex this is completed in a second session a few days later. (see notes at the bottom if you need to do this course over two consecutive days)

Once dry this can be displayed in your garden with an extra coat of varnish.

Full Day 10:00am until 6:00/6.30pm. There is a 2nd session for the colouring to allow the fabric to dry as it is generally thick fabrics.

The colouring session must be booked at the time of booking the workshop.

Please note I have found that the more people on the course the later the course runs please allow for the workshop to be later than advertised.

If there are two of you I will happily split the long day into two half days. Please ask for this option at the time of booking

If you are not local it is possible to run this over two days with forced drying but would be slightly more expensive to allow for the extra energy costs,  £145 please contact me directly to book this option.
