Certified Tutor

 

Not long ago I became a certified tutor of Powertex.

I love Powertex, it is a water based, non toxic, environmentally friendly fabric medium which, once items have dried and ‘cured’ for 3 weeks, can be placed outside.

When I was at university studying art and design – I, of course, chose the textile route – wanted to create a free standing piece of knitting, sadly there was nothing like Powertex then; I used plaster of paris, which obviously cannot be put outside or allowed to become damp let alone stand in the rain, needless to say my knitted sculpture didn’t hang around for long.  Had there been Powertex I would still have my representation of a derlict building, perhaps I should reproduce it…hmmm.
