How to Register

This workshop will involve a  morning session casting prep work on interiors walls of planters.

The remainder of the day will be spent creating the leaf fringe on planters and side wall designs

You will take home projects on set board at end of day, this allows for people travelling to do the workshop in one trip.
Cement needs 24 hrs. to set hard but can travel on a board at end of day wrapped in plastic.
 You will be peeling the leaves off your castings the following early evening or any time thereafter at home - the most exciting part !

These  planters can be set on your  deck or in garden.

My hosta & ferns do particularly well over winter in them

2 feet wide at fringe - 18" high

My aim in teaching this project is to show you what a remarkable medium this is, stimulating your imagination.  

I place emphasis on good technique though  - with cleaning and washing of tools throughout

You will mix your own cement but we have a good mixer to ease the work.

I will follow up with a very thorough instruction sheet  and suppliers

I look forward to showing you the magic.

A  fresh casting with hosta leaves - being "turned out" after 24 hours.

A day with cement is a fun and messy day. 

Wear old clothes and rubber shoes or boots. Crocs are a good choice.

All participants share in every aspect of the work. 

However, you are never required to lift a bag of cement

 I will show you how to avoid hurting your back  when you are working at your own projects at home.

It's always  nice to have a casting buddy  after the class so you may want to share this with a friend
