NorthStone Wire Art & Jewellery has recently joined forces with Powertex UK to become the accredited tutor and distributor for the Tyne Valley.
Powertex is a non-toxic, environmentally friendly, water based textile hardener which can be used to create all sorts of weird and wonderful things, many using recycled materials. It is also water resistant so as well as notebook covers, canvases, figurines, fairie houses and teapots, you can make garden sculptures, plant pots, door signs, the only limit is your imagination!
Many Powertex sculptures use wire to create the support structure, so it made sense to combine with this medium. As well as the core Powertex workshops, we hope to develop new mixed media workshops and tutorials for using wire with Powertex. Introductory workshops start from just £20!
If you haven't experienced this medium before, don't worry, you are in for a fabulous treat! Whether you think you are artistic or not, I can show you how to make amazing creations even as a complete beginner. It is suitable for all ages so I will also be organising children's workshops.
Here are just some of the items you can make. New workshops
are being added all the time. Workshop availability and prices
can be found in the Workshops section and you can follow our
Facebook page Powertex Tyne Valley for the latest information.
