Hypertufa Containers

Hypertufa is a style of container dating back to the Renaissance. Troughs and sinks originally carved from volcanic rock and discarded when they were aged, were picked up by gardeners who used them for planters. Using contemporary materials (peat, concrete, perlite), you will make a container that resembles the traditional English stone troughs. All participants must bring heavy rubber kitchen type gloves and eye protection. Please be aware that while you will be able to bring your projects home with you the day of the class, hypertufa takes several days to cure to its full strength. Materials included.

Limit of 10 participants.  Register early, this class always fills up fast.

Refund Policy

A $20 administrative fee for a full-day class, or a $10 administrative fee for a half-day class, will be charged if notice to withdraw is received up to one week before the class starts. No refunds will be processed after this time. Non-attendance does not constitute notice of withdrawal and a refund will not be issued. Special consideration may be given in extenuating circumstances and will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
