Interview With Beverly Oliwa – Creativity in Focus

Join Shahar for a candid conversation with artist Beverly Oliwa, today on our podcast, Creativity in Focus! Shahar Boyayan chats with Bev about the art of sculpting with textiles, the business side, the life of an artist and more!

Beverly is known for her Garden sculptures. Most sculptures are made with t-shirts, wire and a textile hardener called Paverpol. She makes intricate pieces and has a passion for teaching other people about her techniques.

Some of her courses at Curious Mondo are: Beginning Sculpting with Fabric Hardener, Intermediate Sculpting with Fabric Hardener and How to Create a Heron Paverpol Sculpt

She also mentors the Paverpol certification program. What a great ambassador for this medium!

Garden Sculptures with T-Shirts Was a Hit

Wow! Just Wow!

Beverly Oliwa conquered everyone’s heart and empowered a lot of people to make outdoor sculptures using t-shirt.

Her course is a huge hit and was attended by people in 16 different countries.

Everyone got so excited with this technique, they couldn’t wait to get started.

Most were not familiar with the main product Paverpol and couldn’t believe sculptures with t-shirts could last year in any type of weather.
