Hypertufa Containers

In this 2-part workshop, Allen Fabian, Chadwick Arboretum Volunteer, will teach you how to create beautiful hypertufa containers.  A planted trough can be a garden unto itself, highlighting a variety of textures, colors and heights. Each class participant should be able to make two containers from materials supplied. 

Session One takes place on Tuesday, October 25 from 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. - Participants will learn about the history of hypertua, mix the ingredients, build a container, and learn how to release a finished container from its mold, with one on one instruction.

Session Two takes place on Wednesday, October 26 from 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. - Participants will remove pots from mold and add texture.

Hypertufa is perfect for Ohio weather year round, durable and long-lasting art in your garden. By the time you have ended the class, you will be able to teach the class yourself! All materials, gloves and handouts provided. Please come dressed in your garden clothes.

$40 Chadwick members/$45 non-members, includes both sessions, all materials, two containers, and a handout.


This workshop will take place in the Chadwick Arboretum barn, which is located right behind the Nationwide and Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center.
