YOU WILL MOSAIC AN 8" HYPERTUFA BALL THE FIRST DAY AND GROUT IT THE NEXT. THE WATER BASIN, CONCRETE STAND AND A PUMP ARE ALSO PART OF THE PACKAGE. FINALLY, YOU WILL PLUMB YOUR FOUNTAIN, SO ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS FILL IT WITH WATER AND PLUG IT IN!
The Hypertufa Studio offers a hands-on experience making Steve’s “green” version of HYPERTUFA, a mix of cement, sand, recycled paper fiber and water. You’ll mix, mold and sculpt concrete and hypertufa into unique and functional garden art including a layered rubble box planter, circular bowl with bird, a cast leaf water basin, cast leaves, a mosaic collage stepping stone, and a set of three hypertufa mushrooms. Most participants take home 4-5 finished projects from this two-day session on Saturday and Sunday.
The Recycled Handmade Paper Studio provides a hands-on exploration of the craft of hand papermaking using natural flowers and leaves from the garden and recycled materials. Papers made with garden herbs are especially enticing because they are also naturally scented. You will learn how to make your own paper with the pouring technique and pulp casting. The following day we will use the paper made the day before to make a small hand-bound journal sketchbook. Participants take home sheets of unique papers, a small bound book, and beautiful molded paper bowls. This studio meets for two sessions on Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon. Materials and equipment provided.
Cast a series of shaped leaves in concrete and combine them with mirror pieces to create your own unique hanging sculpture that makes a dandy rain chain when hung under a waterspout or an eave that drips water when raining. Component pieces will be cast and prepared in the first session and assembled and completed in the second. Use shimmering metallic paints to accent your rain chain. $65
