Terrariums are self-sustaining micro-ecosystems enclosed in glass and look beautiful in the home – add one to your coffee table, shelf or desk for a pop of indoor nature!

This mindful terrarium making class gives you the chance to make your own terrarium, indulging in some time for yourself to work with plants and get creative. Doing something creative is proven to promote your sense of wellbeing and decrease stress levels. Joining this London terrarium making class promises to give you a break from your daily concerns to enjoy a relaxing activity in a chilled studio environment.

Taught by an experienced teacher, you'll be shown how to plant some luscious terrarium plants into your glass terrarium. You'll add various natural elements such as soil, stones, sand and moss to your glass vessel to ensure your plants have everything they need to thrive.

You'll learn how to layer the substrates in your terrarium and you'll get lots of tips on how to landscape and decorate your terrarium so that your plants have plenty of space to grow. You'll also be taught how to water and care for your terrarium, and whereabouts in your home it'll do well. Your teacher will also give you some guidance on aftercare to ensure your terrarium plants thrive long-term.

As you create your terrarium, you'll hear some interesting terrarium facts from your teacher and you'll learn all about the history of terrariums. Your teacher will also chat through a range of mini indoor gardening skills, giving you lots of tips for looking after your terrarium plants.

Create your DIY terrarium and soak up the positive vibes of your plant class as you settle your terrarium plants into their new home!

By the end of your London terrarium making class, you'll have your own beautiful glass terrarium to take home with you, as well as a renewed sense of calm from your relaxing activity!

Had an amazing session with Emily, she was extremely creative and engaging throughout the whole session, providing loads of knowledgable on terrariums and teaching you about making them yourselves in the future.

Emily hosted our terrarium workshop for our team social event and it was fantastic! They came to our office and set up and cleared everything for us. Emily was very informative, patient and created a really nice atmosphere for us to create our mini ecosystems and socialise amongst the team whilst learning new things about process. The event was well organised and everyone was very happy to take home their new terrariums. I would definitely recommend as something different to do for a corporate event that everyone can enjoy.
