Cement Leaf Casting Workshop
* 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 apron.

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.
