Hypertufa pots can be made from existing molds to produce the pots you desire. Hypertufa resembles natural tufa stone, but is significantly cheaper, along with being lighter than other stone or clay pots. What's more, is that 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. <em>Pre-registration is required</em>; register online or call 701-241-1492.

Hypertufa pots can be made from existing molds to produce the pots you desire. Hypertufa resembles natural tufa stone, but is significantly cheaper, along with being lighter than other stone or clay pots. What's more, is that 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. Pre-registration is required; register online or call 701-241-1492.

When he passed away in 2014, his obituary which they wrote together, went viral. Her 2017 memoir, <em>It’s Okay to Laugh (Crying is Cool Too)</em>, talks about her husband, Aaron, and his cancer, her life before Aaron (moving to NYC in her twenties, stalking ex-boyfriends on social media), and after Aaron (chapter titles like “Cool Widow Kind of Wants to Kiss Someone”). Her memoir is hilarious and heartbreaking and has received wide praise from critics. Books will be available for purchase. This event is free and open to the public.

Hypertufa pots can be made from existing molds to produce the pots you desire. Hypertufa resembles natural tufa stone, but is significantly cheaper, along with being lighter than other stone or clay pots. What's more, is that 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. <em>Pre-registration is required</em>; <a href="http://programregistration.library.cityoffargo.com/ProgramListing">register online</a> or call <a href="tel:7012411492" title="701.241.1492">701.241.1492</a>.<br> Two sessions are planned:<br> <strong>Thursday, March 15 – Northport Library at 6:30 p.m.</strong><br> <strong>Saturday, March 17 – Dr. James Carlson Library at 10 a.m.</strong></p> <p><strong>Time:</strong> March 15th 2018, 6:30 pm - March 15th 2018, 8:00 pm<br> <strong>Location:</strong> Northport Library 2714 North Broadway Fargo, ND 58102</p> 2018-02-06T22:42:45.950ZFargo Public LibraryLibraryLibrary AdultsUnraveled Crafters @ Carlsonhttp://fargond.gov/news-events/calendar/event-detail?id=5a79fdaa409b2b93059f0838<p>The Unraveled Crafters meet at the Dr. James Carlson Library.
