Hypertufa Workshop

March 3 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

with Paul Spriggs

In this hands-on workshop, participants will produce a 12 x 14 inch hypertufa trough in the classic rock garden style.  Hypertufa is a concrete substitute that looks just like concrete but weighs much less, making it easier to transport. Participants will go through the process of creating the forms, mixing the materials, and setting the trough. As there is a curing period, participants will have to return at a later date to collect their creations. Included in the cost are the forms and all the materials to make one trough. The forms are reusable, so once the skill has been learned, participants may continue to create many more troughs in the future.

HCP Members $65
Non-Members $70
