Alice in Wonderland Challenge

Powertex UK Monthly Challenge Elisa Miles

Entries for the January Powertex UK Monthly Challenge

The Powertex UK monthly prize challenge for 2020 gets off to a magical start with Alice in Wonderland as the theme for entries. We have plenty of top hats, teapots, rabbits and pocket watches in The Powertex Studio Facebook group. The Powertex UK team at HQ have chosen a UK winner to receive a prize!

“We were stunned by the standard of our first challenge and choosing a winner was not an easy task however we decided on Elisa’s entry as we felt it was a great effort from someone fairly new to Powertex.”

Tutor Challenge

Our tutors were given a challenge at this years Tutor retreat at Powertex Hq. Each person bought an item in which they had to reuse and turn into a wonderful work of art. Here are just a few of the projects created. We hope these ideas inspire and show you that all you need a bottle of Powertex and what ever you have to hand. From cardboard tubes to an old mirror…. What will you create?

From cardboard tubes to Steampunk wizardry! We would never have thought of doing something like this with some tubes would you?
