What better way to have fun with Mom than playing in the mud and making something great for your garden?
Hypertufa is an artificial medium with properties similar to the tufa rock from which old stone sinks and animal troughs in England were carved. It is lighter than regular concrete, water permeable and weather resistant. It ages beautifully with a look of old rock. Different ingredients create unique textures that can be molded or sculpted. In the morning you’ll learn the Basics and build your own Hypertufa planter, birdbath, or stepping-stone. After lunch we will go Beyond the Basics to cover creating textures, coloring/painting techniques, incorporating mosaics, sand casting, sculpting, free hand molding, leaf casting, and using armatures.
Kandy Jones (aka The Garage Sale Queen) has been teaching Hypertufa for over 15 years all over Arkansas. She has even written an e-book on Hypertufa and her pieces have been featured in Flea Market Gardening and the Arkansas Democrat Gazette.
