Powertex Notebook Workshop

Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th March

Tactile Textiles, Fargo Village, Far Gosford Street, Coventry, CV1 5ED

As part of Tactile Textiles we will be hosting workshops where you can upcycle, recycle and reuse old scraps of fabric and small bits and bobs (coins, screws, keys, bits of wood, wallpaper scraps, paperclips, matchsticks etc).

In this 90 minute workshop we'll show you how to use Powertex to sculpt your fabric into beautiful individual mini works of art in the form of a covered small and very usable notebook.

Your notebook will be a stunning creation unique to you, they make great gifts (if you can bear to part with it)

We will provide all the equipment although if you have any bits and bobs you want to bring for that added personal touch you are very welcome to.
