2018 Hypertufa Classes

Back by Popular Demand!

We’ll offer six classes this spring through fall, so gather a group of friends for a fun night out! In this hands-on class you’ll roll up your sleeves , connect with your inner creativity and make beautiful hypertufa garden containers to take home and enjoy for years. (Plants not included.)
Hypertufa planters are lightweight rustic pots made from Portland cement, peat moss and vermiculite. This combination makes the containers lightweight and porous and favorable for plant growth. They resemble stone and gain beauty with age attracting lichens and mosses
