About the Event
With the fear of frost waning, many of us are beginning to plot and pot outdoors. To kick off the start of potting season, we’ll create our own one-of-a-kind planters and garden stepping stones using a medium that dates back to 1800s England: Hypertufa. A mixture of cement, peat moss, perlite, and water, Hypertufa originated as an artificial substitute for planting herbs and flowers in stone watering troughs and tufa, a type of porous limestone rock. Using natural and found materials, we’ll embellish our artificial stone creations with unique textures and designs that rock! Perfect for ages 8+
