I only just found about this course and it has just finished, although too far from home for me to travel I am sure the course was a sucsess and there are some really nice examples of sculptures made with Paverpol textile medium. The Paverpol Decorative Figurine Workshop ran from Monday 30th September until Monday 7th October 2013 with Irma Westerdijk from Creations by Irma and was held between 7.00-9.30pm (2 ½ hrs) at Brighton Road Baptist Church in Horsham in West Sussex.
“Do you want to have a go at making sculptures using Paverpol? Come and learn the art of Paverpol with certified instructor Irma Westerdijk from Creations by Irma . Learn to make a wire armature, position, wrap and dress the figurine using different fabrics and mediums to make a stunning sculpture (45-50cm high) in bronze or black over two workshops (a total of 5 hours)
Over two sessions you will be able to make a sculpture of your choice with instruction and guidance from Irma. You can see a recent glowing review of one of Irmas private workshops here.
Do take a look at Irma’s website and facebook page and take a look at some of her stunning creations. Also if you’d like more information about Paverpol, take a look at this description here.”
