Learn to design, plant and sustain a divine terrarium. For 2 people.
WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?
Learn to design, plant and sustain a divine terrarium with our wonderful botanical expert, Alyson. You’ll leave having made your very own miniature, low-maintenance and on-trend biosphere. At the end of the class, you’ll leave merrily clutching your own unique work of art.
WHAT WILL I BE LEARNING?
During the class you’ll learn how to create your own easy-to-keep but beautiful indoor garden. Master the art of wiggling little plants through thin bottlenecks (think cacti, succulents, orchids, and tropicals) and making them snug with charcoal, stones and soil. As well as being given all the materials you need to create your own terrarium, you’ll learn how to make the tools to work with difficult bottle shapes (ever tried squeezing a cactus into a bottle?) and how to choose plants which thrive in their own microclimate.
THE ALL IMPORTANT DETAILS
Everything you need – glass containers, plants, soil and accessories – will be provided on the day. You’re more than welcome to bring your own container, if you have something special planned. Each session lasts 1.5 hours and takes place at Alyson's home in Margate. Times and dates are for you to organise with Alyson, who is extremely flexible.
