Concrete Countertops Hands-On

Learn how to make your own beautiful and affordable concrete countertops. Granite or engineered stone countertops are nice, but they’re also very expensive. In our Concrete Countertops class, you’ll learn how to make polished and durable countertops that are very affordable and will bring style to your home. Learn the physics of concrete and the essentials of steel reinforcement. See the physical characteristics of a placing concrete and the tamping, vibrating, troweling, polishing and finishing that goes into making concrete countertops ALL in just one day. Learn how to avoid the most common problems to create timeless working surfaces. During the class we'll mix and pour two countertops (one in a mold and one in-place) and we'll pull a countertop out of its mold to polish and finish it. Learn subtle tricks of the trade to avoid cracking, voids, color variances and thickness changes. All tools provided but safety equipment is required (gloves, hearing protection, heavy workshoes, back brace as needed). Space is limited so please sign up today. The class requires a minumum of 10 students and Shelter Institute reserves the right to cancel if enrollment is too low.
