Sat/Sun 1st and 2 September 2 Day Boot Workshop at Inspired & Create

Powertex Boot Workshop

You will transform an old boot into a unique work of art

I honestly love doing these boot workshops. The one pictured here was made by a lady who came along and wanted to do a boot in memory of her father who loved bird watching. She brought along her own ornamental bird to add to her design, and I think it is absolutely stunning.

This workshop runs over two days as the boots do take quite a while to harden enough for us to add the dry brushing to pick out the highlights. Everything is provided as always, but if you have a boot that is special to you of course you are welcome to bring it along, as well as any embellishments you wish to add to give your final piece that really unique touch. Booking is via Inspired & Create.

Sunday 17 September Powertex Gnome Workshop at Inspired & Create

Gordon the Powertex Gnome his hat is removable so you can keep whatever you like inside him

This workshop lasts from 11 am to 3 pm – with an hour’s drying off time in the middle so bringing a packed lunch is advisable. Everything you need is provided including tuition from myself, for you to create your very own little gnome, or gnomess (is that what they are called?) I like to keep little sweets in mine. I wonder what you will choose to hide away inside yours. Booking is via Inspired & Create.

Sunday 23 September Powertex Mirror Workshop at Inspired & Create

We will be using round mirror tiles on the workshop, but if you wish to create a square frame around it it is easily achieved

In this workshop we will be using round mirror tiles to create a unique piece of wall art that will brighten up pretty much any wall in your house. We start at 11 am and will have an hours break, aiming to finish at around 4 pm. As always everything is provided, but if you have any special embellishments you wish to bring along with you, this is of course absolutely welcomed. Booking via Inspired & Create

All of these workshops are Art 4 A Heart Workshops, which means that £5 from each ticket sold will be donated to the Papworth Hospital Charity.

I really do appreciate it so much when anyone books onto one of these.

Macmillan Coffee Morning (or in our case afternoon)
I am still working on the details, but am very much hoping to do a small extra Powertex make & take at Inspired & Create on Friday 28 September as part of the Macmillan Coffee Morning. In our case it will be a coffee afternoon and we will probably be munching cake and making tiny Powertex brooches. I’ll send out more details as soon as I have worked it out myself.

That’s all for now folks – I will be moving to a new studio on 2 September so am hoping to be able to offer lots more one to one workshops, so if anyone is itching to make something special, just contact me via www.artandmurals.co.uk and I will do what I can to oblige.

Look forward to seeing you soon
