Cast a special cement mixture in a cardboard box or tube and carve it while it is still soft with spoons and knives or simple hand tools. Make a sculpture, fountain, birdbath, planter, light fixture, steppingstones or a project of your choice. You can bring shards to insert. Ecological, we reuse the material. Easy, fast, everyone loves it!

The first day, learn the possibilities of the materials and process, design your piece, and engineer your container. The second day, pour and carve. The third and fourth, refine and detail, work with color and texture, or carve another piece. You can produce pieces in a wide range of textures and colors including very smooth, refined, jade-like surfaces that might find their home indoors. Explore the possibilities of an inexpensive, widely available material that needs no further processing and is ready to install. All levels are welcome.

Her work in many media is in both private and public collections in the U.S. and abroad.
