If you are thinking of throwing away any damaged or scrap pieces of broken terracotta pots, THINK AGAIN! The “Terracotta Madness” workshop provides an environmentally friendly way to bring new life to old and wrecked pots in an unusually functional and artistic way. Just bring your pots (new pots are also acceptable) to the workshop and the workshop instructors will show you how to reuse and recycle it for another round of planting.

At the workshop participants will also learn about succulent propagation, care, and placement, and will be provided with tips to decorate their recycled pot.


Each participant is asked to bring bits and pieces from cracked terracotta pots or new pots and are encouraged to bring any embellishment to be used to decorate their pot. Planting media and plants will be provided.


Advanced registration is required. Registration opens on Tuesday, April 11, 2017, and closes at 2 p.m. on Friday, May 5, 2017, or when all spaces are filled. Call (808) 748-5315 or email workshops@hbws.org to register. BWS security requires full name and address of all participants.
