Tall Sculpture

Add a whole new dimension to your garden with a beautiful fabric sculpture using paverpol, a non-toxic fabric hardener that can be used indoors or out.  You can choose to make your sculpture 3 feet tall or 6 feet tall and style it any way you like - a ribbon dancer, a bird watcher, a gardener, whatever.  On the first day of this two day workshop, each student will create an armature and reinforce it with metal rods, then build up the form with tin foil. The second day will be for wrapping and dressing the sculpture in your choice of style and color.  As this is a more advanced lesson, a previous paverpol class is recommended.
