Hypertufa Troughs

Hypertufa Troughs

Learn how to make an inexpensive stone trough look-alike from hypertufa. The ingredients used in the mix for these troughs is made up from easily obtained materials. Stone troughs can be very heavy but the use of vermiculite in our mix makes them considerably lighted and lot easier to handle.

On the first part of this workshop Sat 7th (10am - 1pm) you will sculpt your own small trough. In the second part of the workshop Sat 14th (2pm - 4.30pm) you will finish your trough using techniques to make it more natural and aged looking. We will then look at how to plant it up with succulents and methods of propagating this group of plants.

Sat Sept 7th & Sat 14th 10am - 1pm
