Hyper what? Hypertufa is a light- weight concrete mix that is great for herbs, flowers and succulents. In this class, you will use moss, ceramic tiles or textures placed into your hypertufa pot. After class, you will go home with your wet hypertufa pot placed inside a mold with instructions of how to remove it with 2-3 days after the drying process. The mold is yours to keep for future hypertufa making. Once this class is completed, you will have the recipe, the mold and the knowledge to make your own hypertufa containers! We will also continue hosting hypertufa workshops with different themes of shape and sizes in case you want to create and make a mess here at the gardens (rather than your home)!
These photos are just concepts and inspiration; however, your creation will vary based on your style and experience. All of our workshops are at beginner level, no prior art or garden experience necessary (unless noted as Advanced). Dress for a mess or bring an apron! We supply all of the tools and supplies needed. Just bring yourself and plan to have fun while creating in our garden center!
All of our workshops must be prepaid ahead due to limited space and materials needed. We do require six people to run a class, so make sure you tell a friend! Our mission is to teach everyone art and garden this season and have the best time creating! We can also offer private parties, please call Janine for details and more info.
