Thursday, June 10th and 17th | 6:00pm-8:00pm | DIY Draped Hypertufa Planter

Thursday, June 10th and 17th | 6:00pm-8:00pm | DIY Draped Hypertufa Planter


In the 1800s, alpine planters (or troughs) were crafted from limestone. Today, we call this organic, alpine planter look hypertufa -- "hyper" meaning “manmade” and "tufa" meaning "naturally occurring." During this two-part class, you will create your own unique hypertufa using a towel and cement mixture.

On June 10 (part one), make a rock-like hypertufa planeter and leave your creation at the greenhouse to cure for part two.
On June 17 (part two), fill your planter with flowers and bring it home for indoor or outdoor enjoyment!

Please note: This is a two-part class held on different dates, students must be available for both sessions (June 10 and June 17).

This class is appropriate for ages 18+.

This class will take place indoors at Jamie's Greenhouse, located at 1965 Watson Hulburt Rd. Macedon, NY.

Live subtitles will be available upon request during this class. If you prefer a sign language interpreter, please fill out our contact form. Please also let us know if you have any preferences (seating, vision access, etc).
