Create your own hypertufa planter in a workshop at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, April 28 at  Lockwood’s Greenhouse, 4484 Clark St., Hamburg.

Lyn Chimera will help you create your own hypertufa planter in this popular class. Hypertufa is relatively light compared with terracotta or traditional concrete and can withstand harsh winters. You will learn the formula to mix and then apply it to a mold. Once you know the process, you can design many different sizes and shapes of containers. Hypertufas are especially favored for mini hostas and succulent gardens.

Chimera will also do a demonstration of the newly popular draped concrete planter. These use a towel soaked in concrete and applied to an inverted container that creates a pleated effect on the circumference of the pot.

The workshop and demo are $35, which includes supplies for the hypertufa. The class is limited to 15 people.
