This will be a fundamentals class covering GFRC and other mix designs, how to properly develop them, implement and control them and determine what admixtures and other products you can use for your mixes and why. This will be taught by Mike Cook on the first day! Bring your pencils and paper!!!
We will then move to the shop where we will fabricate some forms in wood and fabric form and cast them using the principals that we went over in the class. We will fabricate some basic wood and fabric formed molds, going over the basics of fiberglass and how to use and apply it.
We will then batch out for our mixes and go through the mixing and placement of GFRC. We will walk through the proper steps to produce a good finish and a strong product with minimal products and effort. Then pop them out and go through finishing procedures.
This will be a “once in a great while” kind of class as Mike and I do not get many chances to train together, not to mention having the good folks of Stone Soup Concrete sharing some skills as well!! Don’t miss this one!!!!
