Nine participants enjoyed a unique art class called Paverpol, instructed by Valerie Juniper of Absolutely Paverpol. The class was held at the Pierson Library on Sunday, October 14.
Paverpol was created in the 1990’s by a group of artists in the Netherlands to make large outdoor objects for amusement parks and carnival floats. It is a remarkable new sculpture medium from Holland. This environmentally friendly, water-based hardener is non-toxic and harmless to people, plants, and animals. Since Paverpol is made to cure rock-hard, sculptures and statues are weather resistant after hardening, and can withstand snow, frost, wind, rain, and sun. Paverpol is easy to work with. It adheres to almost all materials, except plastic. Simply dip your materials in Paverpol and drape it around a wire form or other armature and let it dry. Paverpol is fast drying, but allows plenty of time to sculpt and mould your design. This unique feature makes it possible for your sculpture to be finished in one day.
Paverpol is the art of recycling at its best as it works really well with any kind of natural material. Since Paverpol is great for the outdoors because of its ability to withstand the extreme weather conditions we have in Canada. You can create beautiful artwork for your yard which will last for years to come. It will be a valuable addition to your garden or home décor. The great thing about all of this is that you really don’t need to have any experience or artistic abilities.
