This class is an introduction to the vast and multifaceted world of concrete art. Learn how to cast leaves and create garden planters, as well as gain the knowledge to further create items like stepping stones, birdbaths, mosaic planters, carved planters and more. We will use a unique, engineered custom concrete mix design that is easily sourced and provides our finished projects with amazing strength, extemely reduced weight, resistant to outdoor elements and thinner than typical casts, allowing for easy handling. Required materials - several fresh cut leaves with texture, with no holes, rips or tears, as small as 6' by 8' and as large as 10' by 18'. Plant examples: hosta, chard, burdock. All students will make an item to take home with them. Wear work clothes. $20 materials fee payable to the instructor.
