Goblets - Fabric Sculpting Workshop

Learn how to create stunning goblets using fabric sculpting techniques. Use any shaped glass as your base and create three dimensional textures using fabric and a fabric hardener. The finished result will be a fully usable drinking vessel which is water resistant and can be handwashed gently. (Do not put in dishwasher or allow to soak). 

Through a series of video tutorials, artist, Abigail Lagden will take you through how to create this project step by step.  You will learn how to work with different fabrics and embellishments to create your design, then use my special colouring technique to really enhance the detail and textures using colours and shading.

When you buy my Goblet Workshop you will also get free access to my Bottle Collar Workshop.
