We’re passionate about craft but being able to make things you’d actually be proud to show off in your home or give as a gift. We also try to offer a range of activities that are a bit different, away from the norm but still being accessible for any level of craft skill.

Common Room is run by Vicky & Ella. Vicky is a teacher by day but also runs a perinatal mental health support group and is passionate about positive mental health. Ella has a creative background in photography and interior design and also runs her own business Ella's Garden. They've got a mutual love of wine and doing craft and so decided to combine their skills and set up Common Room to facilitate other people to make and create whilst drinking wine (soft drinks are also available!).

Both teachers explaining the ins and out of a terrarium. It was interesting especially when doing your own terrarium and what plants can be used for your desired effect.

Claire Roberts Jul 2023

Vicky was an amazing host, talking us through the biology of terrariums before instructing us on how to construct our own. The materials and plants provided were varied and abundant. This was such a good event to do as a team - it was cathartic, yet allowed us all to talk while we were constructing our terrariums.

Thank you Vicky for a brilliant experience!

The class was great fun, and the teacher was friendly and enthusiastic. I enjoyed hearing about the different plants, soil and recommendations for different themes. The teacher gave lots of helpful tips about splitting plants, planting and how to care for it. They provided cold drinks too.

Fun class! A chance to see what was in the soil we were using was interesting and the terrarium we made was a lot bigger than expected!

Chris Dec 2022

We had such a great time. There was such a variety of different plants and various decorations to use inside your terrarium. We got to learn about things you wouldn’t necessarily think about and we got to be as creative as we wanted. Our teachers were so knowledgeable and helpful and really helped everyone get the best out of the experience. I would recommend this over and over again. Thanks for such a great time.

Justin Ward Dec 2022

Fantastic class, very fun and informative. Would highly recommend for everyone, not just plant enthusiasts.

Michael Chrystal Dec 2022

Knowledgeable, friendly, helpful teachers and a lot of options for materials. The terrariums are a really nice big size and there was so much room for customisation. I was a bit hesitant at first because of not so many reviews, but this is just because the class hasn’t gone for long, it exceeded my expectations and now we have lovely closed ecosystems to show off in our home.
