Hypertufa Class | In-person class

Recurring event see all

March 26 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Let’s put on some gloves and get our hands dirty! Hypertufa pots are fun, unique, and easy-to-make containers for your home garden. These containers are made by combining Portland cement, perlite, peat moss, and water. The resulting material looks like concrete but is very lightweight.

The best way to learn is hands-on! In this class, you’ll be making a flower pot(s) to take home and learning the step-by-step process to making hypertufa pots. This hobby is addictive, so once you start, you won’t want to stop! You’ll take home directions, care instructions, and creative ideas to further your garden experience.

Capacity is limited, so reserve your spot today!

Additional Information: This class will take place in-person at the Huntsville Botanical Garden in an indoor space. Please come prepared to get messy!
