ARTISAN: Bernadette Alcock
BUSINESS: Garden Inspirations
Fabric sculpting is my playground and my goal with each piece is to capture the uniqueness and character of the subject as well as to generate a mood or emotion. The combination of colours and textures makes each one-of-a-kind sculpture come alive and an engaging addition to any home or garden… even your workplace.
Each sculpture is handmade, one of a kind and end result is a fabric sculpture made with natural fibre materials and textile-hardener, set on stone, bricks or wood. They are finished with a high end varnish that protects them all year round from the outdoor elements. These fun loving garden sculptures will bring a unique and exquisite beauty to you (or a friend) either in an outdoor garden or special place in the home.
BEGINNER WORKSHOPS AVAILABLE – Full day (9:00 am -4:00 pm)
Beginner classes for groups of 4 to 6. Each student will be assured a memorable day, and pride at the end of the day creating their own 16-18″ sculpture. To begin your planning, start saving natural products (i.e. old white cotton t-shirts, old white tea towels, cotton string, stone, and interesting wood pieces).
