Cement Leave Making Event

Come make cement leaves on May 17th. Come anytime between 4 to 6pm. In about 30 minutes you can make and take your leaf home.

$15 for one bigger leaf or two smaller leaves. And you can make as many as you want. We provide a pair of gloves, a cardboard box, a mound of sand to hold the shape of the leaf and wet cement.

To make your leaf, select a leaf from our stash or bring your own leaf. The leaf is placed facedown on a mound of sand in a cardboard. Wet cement is patted on to cover the backside of the leaf. You can take the leaf in cardboard box home immediately. In 24 hours the cement is cured and it is time to peal the leaf off to reveal the lovely veins and patterns of your leaf. Let the leaf cure another week before putting outside. The leaves can be left unpainted or they can be painted with acrylic paints.
