Hypertufa is the IDEAL material for making one-of-a-kind plant containers and garden art! Once you’ve worked with hypertufa (a combination of cement, peat moss, and perlite), you’ll discover how easy and fun it is to make unique, perfectly-sized vessels. Hypertufa can be scraped, brushed, colored, or imprinted with your unique designs – or you may just like the rustic look of an unfinished pot. Once it’s properly “cured,” hypertufa is incredibly lightweight and long-lasting in our extreme Ohio weather.
SESSION 1: What is hypertufa, and what makes it so strong and light? Learn how to measure and mix the raw materials, choose a molding container, and create a release-ready* pot.
SESSION 2 (optional): Release your pots from the mold, embellish the surface if desired, and take your unique creation home.
*You can take your pot home at the end of Session 1 – IF you can transport it carefully!
Instructor will provide hypertufa materials, gloves, dust mask, and a handout with recipes and instructions. Dress to get messy.
CLASS SIZE IS LIMITED TO 10 PARTICIPANTS!
