Cement Leaf Casting
* These classes are approved for master gardener credit.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE CLASS
We will be supplying all materials to make one leaf. You will
need to bring latex or rubber gloves and wear old clothes or
You can bring a leaf from home or we can help you find one
in the garden but you will need to show up earlier for that as
class begins at 10am sharp. We suggest that you select a
leaf that has strong veins and is more thick than thin.
Choose a leaf that is about the size of a dinner plate.
You will be leaving your concrete leaf on site for it to harden
before picking it up by the third day. You can etch your
name on the back of the leaf. Wednesday people can pick
up on Saturday at the earliest (June 9) and Saturday people
can pick up on Wednesday (June13) of the next week. All
leaves will eventually be moved to a safe area for pickup.
