Saturday 1st August 2020 1-4pm 40€ per person

**You will make your trough (it will look a bit like a mud pie!) and we will discuss the ‘aftercare’ and drying/curing process. We recommend that you leave your trough here with us for at least a week to allow drying time before moving it, however if you are too far away to call back for it and/or wish to take it home with you on the day you will need a sturdy plastic crate or wooden board or tray large enough and sturdy enough to carry it back in your car without it moving too much. (you will be able to do minor repairs for several hours before the mix starts to harden)
