Our February 9th meeting, will be held from 6:00 - 8:00 PM at the Waldemere Fire Station’s upstairs Meeting Room, where we will learn about creating with “Hypertufa.” Guest speaker Gary Patton will show us examples of pots made from this amazing material and explain how we can make our very own “Hypertufa Pots” which he will teach at the next Playday on February 28th.
February “Play Day” Workshop
Gary Patton will be teaching our “Hypertufa Pot” workshop held on February 28th from 1:00 - 4:00 PM at the Waldemere Fire Station. This will be an outdoor workshop, and you will want to dress in old clothes as we may get “down and dirty” during the process! Gary will be providing: the materials for making two pots, (1-10” x 9” and 1-small pot), a mold (that each member gets to keep to take home for making future pots), nitrile & plastic gloves, disposable dust masks, goggles or safety glasses, some trowels, & plant material for making engraved designs in the containers, (he will also talk about carving the pots while still "green") You will need to bring: a work apron, disposable plastic table cloth, and a small trowel or hand shovel. The cost for this fun workshop has been discounted for our group from $39.00 to ONLY$15.00 per member! Sign up at the February meeting, as this workshop will fill up fast!
Note: The "head pots" above are for inspiration only at this point. Once Gary teaches us how to make everyday pots like the ones below, we will be able to let our imaginations take flight!
