Making Hypertufa Container Workshop

  • Saturday, September 9, 2017, 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

A hypertufa container is a rustic English Garden, light weight container that looks like stone. Master Gardener Lyn Chimera will be leading the workshop, showing you how to make one of your own at this make-and-take workshop. 

Class size is limited to only 20 people, so register early.  To register for Hypertufa Workshop, please click here. If you would like to VIEW OUR BROCHURE for the classes with a MAIL-IN form, please click here.

For the Hypertufa workshop, each person will need to bring:

  1. Rubber gloves – protects your hands. The heavy duty ones work best.
  2. A face mask as the cement is caustic to breathe in while it is being mixed.
  3. OLD clothes and shoes! The cement mixture can stain clothes and shoes so please dress accordingly.
  4. Two forms, containers etc. to use as a mold not larger than a dish pan. Some ideas are, dish pan, salad or mixing bowl, small storage container, plastic Rubbermaid type containers work well. You can also use plastic pots or containers from the Dollar store. Anything where the sides are wider at the top than the bottom or at least straight. The inside of the containers should be smooth as we will be building the Hypertufa on the INSIDE of the form.
  5. Plastic bag that will fit as a liner for your forms. This is so the Hypertufa will slide out easily when completed.
  6. A hand trowel for scooping out the mixture and smoothing the sides.
