Learn to personalise your living space with plants and terrariums with our house and garden courses in Sydney.

In this workshop, you will learn how to create your own glass terrarium.

Living in the city often means two things: we sacrifice living space to be close to the action and with so much action, we become busy and stressed. But plants can help us connect with the natural world and provide so many benefits such as improving mood, increasing concentration, decreasing stress and improving general wellbeing!

Terrariums are a fantastic way to introduce greenery to the home as they don’t take up much space and require very little maintenance, allowing us to get on with our busy lives while still getting the benefits of plants around us!

Join this workshop for a night of relaxation and learning. Unwind while you build a gorgeous terrarium to take home and learn all you need to know to keep it thriving. Let your creativity flow and make it yours.
