with Shana Brown
Two Part Class: Saturday, July 15 – 9am – 12pm & Sunday, July 16 – 1pm – 4pm
Join local artist and Organic Master Gardener, Shana Brown for an intensive, two part, hands-on workshop where you will learn how to mix, mold, finish and cure a beautiful, one of a kind hypertufa planter for your home or garden.
Prized for its lightweight, porous qualities, durability and rustic look, hypertufa is an ideal medium to create unique planters and garden ornaments. Made from easily sourced, domestic materials; when properly cured and reinforced these charming
creations can withstand harsh winters and last for years and years.
Participants will be provided with all necessary materials and equipment, including a personal safety kit to keep for future exploration in hypertufa creation. Please come dressed in closed toe shoes, full length (top & bottom) “work” clothes and be prepared to have some fun getting dirty! Consider a cool, dark spot in your home where your hypertufa creation can be stored and tended for the duration of a, post class, two week curing process.
