Ideal for people who have not made a mud pie in years!
We will cover the basics of working in hypertufa as we make a pot based on the look of the English troughs originally used to hold water for livestock. When the old stone troughs were no longer used, gardeners found them great as containers for plants. Since these are made of stone and heavy, hypertufa came along to resemble stone, with a lot less weight and attracts moss. By mixing sand, peat moss, various volcanic aggregates and Portland cement, hypertufa is relatively light. On the first day of the two-morning workshop, we fabricate a pot and pedestal.The second day, we unmold and finish the textured surface.
