    Looking for an point of interest on your 

    outdoor wall or fence?  Come and experience the fun of working with Powertex, a liquid that will harden cotton material permanently, and also make it impervious to rain and snow.  All necessary materials will be provided for this class, though you may wish to bring a piece of jewellery to add something special to you piece.  I will have some pieces of jewellery you can chose from as well.  This is a fun project especially when you come with a group of your friends.  

    Long plastic aprons will be supplied for everyone. Though it is strongly recommended that you do not dress in “good clothes” as well, in case Powertex gets on your clothing!  


    Instructor:  Barbara Bellchambers   

    Bring a lunch or be prepared to buy one.

    Using your creative juices, you will design and make your own chicken out of a gourd.  Have fun with colours and styles, making a realistic chicken or an imagined chicken.  Your choice!  Gather some friends to have a fun day making chickens together.   

    We will supply all the needed materials, gourds, feathers, air-dry clay and more.  

    Participants may want to bring an apron!
