Concrete Planters Workshop

How to make concrete planters



2 hours Class size 1 to 3     label $109

Calling all plant-lovers! Learn how to make your own concrete planters at this fun Sydney workshop. You will also take home your stylish concrete planters to house your favourite succulents!

This class is great for beginners, as long as you are willing to get your hands dirty! Your instructor will take you through the basics of concrete making as well as how to decorate a pre-made planter using contemporary styles such as the marble effect.

The class will begin with step-by-step instructions on how to mix concrete from scratch and then move on to concrete moulds and how they are used. Prepare to let your inner creative out in the second stage of the workshop, where you will learn colouring and decorating effects for concrete planters and get to try some yourself.

At the end of the class you will take home three concrete planters: two that you made yourself and one premade planter decorated by you! You will also have opened a whole world of possibilities with concrete making well beyond concrete planters. You can apply these same skills to creating jewellery, furniture and many other homewares.
