Concrete Planters

with Morgan Martinson

Pottery Classes in Chicago



Class Info

Learn how to make beautiful concrete planters by re-using plastic containers.

We'll go over the basics of casting concrete. You'll choose your mix and which containers you'd like to use. You can bring your own containers or use some that I'll have on hand. You'll leave with two of your own planters and the confidence to make more!

You'll enjoy this class if you like re-using waste material, you like to garden, you like to work with your hands, or if you like handmade things in your home.

BYO event.
Warning to those with allergies-- cats present.

What to bring

Your own containers, if you wish. For mold-making, we use two containers per planter-- one for the outside of the pot and one for the inside.

What will be provided

Aprons, concrete, aggregate, and plastic containers.

    This was a really relaxed and fun experience! Recommended. I was able to stick a knife for all three throws we learned. Felt like hanging out with buds, drinking some beers and having fun. Thanks!
