Dawn Blanton of Highland Acres Hosta & Daylilies Farm, Schuylkill Haven will lead a workshop on creating concrete leaf casts. The workshop will take place at the Schuylkill County Fairgrounds in the Flower Building which is next to the FARM Food Stand.
The workshop is sponsored by the South Schuylkill Garden Club and will take place on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. Dawn, the instructor, will demonstrate how to cast the sheet, and attendees will receive a kit with all the supplies needed to make a cast to the size of your hand as well as another smaller sheet casting.
Attendees may want to bring a mask as initially there may be some dust released by the medium being used. After making the leaf cast, participants should take the leaf cast home and allow it to fully dry (or harden) for 24 hours. These leaf castings can be used both indoors and outdoors and can be painted.
The workshop is open to the public, but places are limited. Call 570-739-2627 for reservations. The cost of the course is $20. A check made payable to SSGC and mailed to Kim Morgan, 1537 Panther Valley Road, Pine Grove, PA 17963 guarantees your attendance at the workshop.
