Learn the art of Fabric sculpture – you do not have to have an artistic bone in your body to be able to create these wonderful statues. We use an air drying glue that renders the materials hard and waterproof, this works especially well with cottons, wool, silk and wood.
They will be hard to the touch when dry, the fabric becomes quite rigid; therefore resilient to the wind, rain and snow therefore they can be placed outside in a shady area. If they become dusty they can be hosed down to clean!
Why the name Wrapertoire?
