Hypertufa Trough Workshops

Hypertufa Container Registration Closed

Beth Jimenez and Amelia Lane, JCRA Volunteers

March 11, 2006 (Saturday) – 9:00 AM–12:00 PM
March 11, 2006 (Saturday) – 1:00 PM–4:00 PM

Hypertufa troughs were developed in England as an alternative to old stone sinks. They provide excellent drainage and can highlight those special small plants that you have! A planted trough can be a garden unto itself. We will learn to mix the ingredients, build a container, and release a finished container from its mold.

Bring a container/mold approximately 10" × 15" and 5" deep and a piece of plywood larger than your mold to use as a work surface. Your container can be a metal or sturdy plastic bowl, a thick Styrofoam container, or a dishpan. Be creative!

Both sessions are closed.

Cost: $30.00 (members only). Fee includes all materials except mold and plywood work surface.
