ONSITE: High-Performance Concrete

A great introduction to high-performance concrete. During this workshop, you will learn how to form molds, calculate concrete mixes, pour, and finish concrete. This is not concrete from your big box store, but a high performance mix that is great for furniture. We will talk about form building, mix designs, fibers, pigments, and finishes. Make a small side table or coffee table top. Please note, this class will focus on the concrete top and not the base. Come and see the many things you can do with concrete!

Special Notes

  • A respirator is highly suggested for mix day.
