Autumn Powertex Workshops

Lots of lovely Autumnal Colours to choose from

Autumn is such a great season for colours, and we will be using lots of gorgeous autumnal powertex pigments in my Art 4 A Heart Workshops this month:

For lots of people the big October event is Halloween – and Powertex is just perfect for making those extra special spooky decorations to wow your friends and neighbours with if you are hosting, or attending a witchy party this year.

With this in mind, I will be running sessions for up to two people at a time at my spanking new studio in Fairways House, Southampton so if you fancy coming along with your child to make an extra special broomstick

Or maybe just bringing out your own spooky creative juices

Powertex Halloween Fun

Magical Wands to go alongside the ornamental witches hats

I love doing workshops at The Crafty Bug Cafe, (which is based in Woolston, Southampton), and not just because the cake is so good! I will guide you through the process of making both an ornamental hat, and also a beautiful and ornate wand and will then be on hand to offer an advice you may need whilst you set about making your own unique version. Booking via or directly via The Crafty Bug Cafe

Last but not least – I will be having a stall selling lots of Halloween goodies as well as other Powertex sculptures at the Fairies Witches & Hippies Fayre at West Totton Community Centre on Sunday 28 October.

On the night itself, I will be snuggled up safely inside, eating my way through the tonnes of trick or treat goodies I always buy 🙂
