Fen Mill Crafts – Mixed Media Using Powertex

Who Are Fen Mill Crafts?

We are are small business started by two sisters and have had a passion for crafting since our early teens.  We started with knitting and sewing and then moved on to paper crafting.  Paper crafting then took us on a journey with mixed media which has now taken us to our current adventures with Powertex.

What is Powertex?

Powertex is an amazingly versatile multi-purpose mixed media medium that can be used as a fabric hardener, paint and glue.    It is water soluble when wet, non toxic, environmentally friendly and weatherproof once cured.

Powertex has the highest American (AP) Safety label. The USA are very strict regarding the import of foreign products, especially when the product is suitable for use in the educational sector. The American AP Safety label is known worldwide for being the best.

Powertex works best as a fabric hardener on materials that are at least 80% natural fibre such as cotton, silk, lace and hessian.

We were amazed at the versatility of Powertex from the outset and have created a range of art pieces taking inspiration from nature and our love of the outdoors. Many of our projects are weatherproof and so are equally suited for placement in the garden or indoors.

We are currently able to offer a range of classes. We hold our workshops in our purpose built studio in Chatteris. Fen Mill Crafts currently offer 1-2-1 tuition (or 2 from the same household). No previous experience is necessary as all materials are provided. We will guide you through each step of the process allowing you to create your own unique piece to take home with you.
