Tufa Planters Workshop Saturday, May 30, 1-3pm
Hypertufa is a fun process for creating "instant antiques." The finished planters will have the look of weathered, hand carved stone. Come and learn the basics of this easy, do-it-yourself project. Everyone in attendance will take home a bowl or a small trough that they have created. Once you master the techniques of making a hypertufa planter, the possibilities to express your own creativity with larger and more complex projects will be a snap.
INSTRUCTOR: Steven Gerischer
COST: Members $20 | Nonmembers $23
