Workshop: Hypertufa + Blade sharpening

An example of a finished Hypertufa container.

Anyone interested in having fun, learning something new and creating your own work of art?  This meeting will be held at a Member’s home – please see your newsletter for details.

Each participant will create their own planter/pot/container from our concrete mix, better know as a Hypertufa! The club will provide all materials except the form that you will use to put the cement into and make your creation.  The form can be a bowl, plastic container or small box, none to be larger than 12 inches in any direction. Your container can be lined with plastic so when you remove your “cured” creation, your container will still be in good condition.  Since these cement items have to “cure” for several weeks, you should bring a card board box to place your item into  – to transport to your home.

Nearly anything can be used as a Hypertufa mold.

If you absolutely cannot locate a container to use as your mold, Marcie has a few extra but not enough for everyone.  Please RSVP to the newsletter email if you will be participating in this activity and if you are bringing your own mold or need one from Marcie. You may want to bring gloves and a small wooden dowel, and if you plan to add some of your own bling, perhaps some colored stones or marbles! Be creative!

Members that don’t wish to make this project should come and visit with friends, enjoy the refreshments and view the beautiful garden. Bring your item/items to be sharpened by John (see sharpening information on page 2 of your newsletter). 

Note: We suggest that you bring a chair as there isn’t enough seating for everyone.
