Dates and Locations:
Monday 25 October 10am-4.30pm, Card Cabin, 63 Friars Vennel, Dumfries
Techniques: Stone Art, Fabric Sculpting
Make your own highland coo from wire, recycled packaging and stone art clay made from Powertex to create this little guy!
This workshop is definitely not for the faint-hearted with a variety of techniques used, from building and packing your wire frame, creating stone art clay using Powertex and powder, and covering with fabrics and Powercotton to create texture and support. Is it challenging? Yes! Is it worth it? Absolutely!
You will be shown how to build and support an animal structure, how to mix, create and apply your own clay, and shape it to create your animal before covering in the Powercotton for texture. At the end of the day you will leave with a freestanding Highlander complete with its own character!
