Hypertufa Pots

Why buy expensive rustic pots when you can make them at home? Hypertufa resembles natural tufa stone, but is significantly cheaper, along with being lighter than other stone or clay pots. What's more, hypertufa pots are extremely durable, and should last through multiple winters if left outside. Participants will learn the basics of making a hypertufa pot and will get to take home their creation. All materials will be provided. Pre-registration is required. Register online starting February 22. Contact Sunny at 701.241.1472 for more details. Two sessions are planned:
Thursday, March 15 - Northport Library at 6:30 p.m.
Saturday, March 17 - Dr. James Carlson Library at 10 a.m.
