Learn an unconventional kind of pottery and create extraordinary gifts made from the pyroclastic material, Lahar! Given today’s high density lifestyle, many urban dwellers are interested to craft their own space-saving mug-sized garden. With that in mind, the following learning activities will teach the students how to make their very own Geometric Lahar Planters:
- Hand-cutting Formworks – Cutting out shapes and assembling cut-outs together to form a mold
- Hand-mixing Lahar – Mixing right proportions of Lahar and bonding agent, and casting the mix
- Finishing Works – Demolding the dry Lahar pot, sanding, and weatherproofing (odorless and quick dry)
- Potting Succulents – Potting succulents into the finished Lahar pot and decorating with aesthetic rocks
Aside from great knowledge about Lahar Use and Succulent Care, students will take home the following materials:
- Starter Tools
- Garden Tools (hand trowel, hand rake, wooden spoons, cactus soil mix, assorted aesthetic rocks)
- Craft Materials (lahar, mini shovel, mixing bucket, cutter, pencil, steel ruler, cutting mat, boards, adhesive tapes, paint brush, paper cups, weatherproofing paint)
- Two (2) Reusable Molds
