Channel your creativity and try something new from the comfort of your own home and build your own terrarium with desert-inspired designs in this online class with a bunch of like-minded folks!

We send you all the materials and tools you need in a handy craft kit, sent out in advance of the workshop, so you will have everything ready.

During this virtual terrarium workshop, we will be making an open terrarium. These self-sustaining ecosystems mimic the landscape of beautiful arid desert plains and are ideal for a display of cacti and succulents.

Terrarium making is perfect for urban dwellers or if you are new to living with plants as our open terrariums need minimal maintenance and are a breeze to care for. Yet they still provide a beautiful centrepiece for your interior and bring great joy as you watch your miniature world grow, never mind how much fun they are to make!

As you learn how to make a terrarium, you will learn fun facts about the interesting history of terrariums, suitable soil compositions, and top tips for arranging your plants in your vessel.

What to expect:

  • A welcome to our online hangout on Zoom.
  • A moment to get set up, go through your materials, pour a glass of wine, grab some snacks.
  • An insight into the history and background of terrariums.
  • Learn some facts and tips about growing cacti and succulents.
  • Find out about soil and drainage combinations.
  • Guided step by step process to build your terrarium.
  • Let your creativity go wild as you put your own individual flair into the decorative elements.
  • Plant care and maintenance tips to keep your new miniature desert happy and thriving!

Join your experienced teacher and other plant-lovers and create your own urban oasis!
