Event Website

Note: This is a two-part class with sessions on November 4 and 11; participants should attend both sessions.

Hypertufa is a light weight concrete mixture comprised of Portland cement, perlite, water, and peat moss. The mixture can be poured into a mold or hand sculptured to create a variety of long-lasting garden containers. In this popular two-part class, participants will make two hanging 4” diameter planter orbs. The Edison orbs are perfect for attaching tillandsia, small orchids, and bromeliads and compliment a small patio or large garden. All supplies are included, but we recommend participants bring a pair of rubber or latex kitchen gloves. Retired art instructor and Edison and Ford volunteer Jim Hopton, will be teaching the class. Class size is limited to ten students.
