Looking for a relaxed, peaceful and creative few hours? Escape the City with the Botanicalboys in their private green, peaceful workshop and you will find your creative when you design your very own eco-terrarium garden. An extremely low maintenance self watering environment to take home with you inside a large glass vase.

The eco-system in a jar, is a miniature greenhouse of living plants that thrive off moisture. You will learn the whys and how's for making a self contained living botanical environment.

You will use colourful plants, mosses, rocks, soil and miniature objects to turn your eco-system into a beautiful living miniature world.

We will provide you with a lovely large 3 ltr glass jar, a range of colourful plants, beautiful green mosses and other fun objects to help personalise your garden.

You will take your new garden home in a Botanical Boys gift bag with aftercare instruction leaflet.

We look forward to hosting you in our beautiful green, peaceful studio.

Botanical Boys also teach companies to enhance the wellbeing of their staff by giving teams the chance to create their very own indoor garden to display on their desks. Through experience we have enhanced the productivity of staff and shifted the happiness scale through terrarium design classes.

Such a great way to spend a cold winter’s evening! The Botancial boys were perfect hosts and very knowledgable. Lots of great materials were made available and the prosecco was the perfect touch! Will definitely be signing up again!

I can't recommend this class enough. I'm a big obby fan and I have been to some great classes, but this has by far been my favourite experience. My sister and I were lucky enough to be the only ones in our session, and Darren and Ben made us feel so welcome in their studio. Darren's excellent reaching gave us the perfect amount of knowledge to confidently build a really unique terrarium each. There was a huge variety of materials for us to work with and we were told all about the fascinating history of the art of terrarium making. The prosecco was also a wonderful touch! The Eco-system jar we came away with was absolutely beautiful, I've already received so many compliments on it. Will definitely be creating some more! Thank you Botanical Boys!

This was a great way to spend a Friday evening. We not only got to build terrariums, but were also taught how to do it ourselves in the future. I'd definitely do more events with the Botanical Boys in the future 🙂

Had a thoroughly good time. Really liked that once you were taught the basics and shown what to do, the guys gave you plenty of time to do your own thing. Also amazing that a room of strangers felt like friends by the time I left.

I was happy with the terrarium we created during the workshop, and overall it was a good experience. I would have liked things to kick off a bit more quickly, though, with less of an introduction of the history of the workshop/brand, and also had a bit more conversation at the end about other techniques for making terrariums/materials and ideas for doing them at home.

It’s not every class that lets you create your very own world! I loved every second of this class. Darren and Ben were very welcoming and told us just enough about the history of terrariums and gave lots of inspiration on how to create our own. My jar is thriving and I’ve been telling everyone how much I loved this.

We had a fantastic evening with the Botanical Boys learning about and building our own terrariums. Amazing working space with so much inspiration from the terrariums around the room and expert advice from the boys. Loved it and think everyone should try it, it's so relaxing and you have a beautiful unique ecosystem at the end. Thank you boys :)

SO MUCH FUN! This was our first obby experience and what a great one it was - it was informative, friendly, fun, and we came away with sonething which will hopefully last a good long time. Just the two of us in the class, and Darren and Ben were fab. Loved it and would fully recommend - even my boyfriend, who is not normally the creative type, said it was the best Friday night he’d had in years!

I could not have picked a better class as my first Obby booking. Darren and Ben are exceptional; so friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. The entire experience was fun, educational, relaxing, artistic, creative; we loved every second of it! Highly, highly recommended; I'm telling everyone about it!

What a fantastic way to spend a few hours. The Botanical Boys were excellent hosts welcoming us into their home. Some people may feel uncomfortable with this but for us this made the experience more personal and relaxed . Being in a small group meant that there was great opportunity for interaction between the boys and guests. It was educational, fun and very therapeutic and best of all we came away with our own terrarium creations. No previous experience or creative talent required just go with the flow. This was booked as a birthday surprise. I’m definitely going again with my friends as my enthusing has been contagious. I highly recommend the Botanical Boys experience.

Darren and Ben were so friendly and welcoming into their beautifully decorated flat in east London. Darren was so knowledgeable and extremely patient when guiding us through the steps. I am not typically a creative person but I found it really inspiring and actually left with a terrarium I was proud of. Would strongly recommend going as it really was a relaxing and enjoyable couple of hours with endless glasses of prosecco and a terrarium that you get to take home, what more could you want!!

Great workshop! So much fun, ended up with a fab terrarium to take home and learned a lot too. We've tried other workshops were everything is very 'measured' - it says's one glass of prosecco, so you get one glass, class finishing on the exact time. But here class overran by 45 minutes because everyone were having so much fun and wanted to take photos etc in the end, everyone got several fill ups on prosecco, no limit on how many plants or items you wanted in your terrarium. Ben and Darren knows a lot about plants, have a lovely home/studio and created a really friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Would highly recommend the Botanical Boys to anyone who wants to try something new!

We had a great time making our terrariums with Darren from Botanical Boys. He was very knowledgeable, telling us the history behind them and talking us through each step of making the terrarium. There was a great choice of materials for us to make them unique, and the prosecco was great too! Would highly recommend this class :)

Terrarium Masterclass - Handcraft an Eco-System by Botanical Boys - crafts in London

About your host, Botanical Boys

Ben and Daz of The Botanical Boys began their journey in 2009 when they took over a terraced garden in London Fields with a Japanese & formal English segments. Having no gardening experience prior, they really got stuck in and become members of the National Garden Scheme and opened up the space to the public for charity every year. They were selected for a spot on the BBC Great British Garden Revival program in May 2015 and were featured in a number of books and publications.

After a few assignments and holiday trips to South Africa and California it was succulents and their ability to be used in many structural forms, as with their sculpted Japanese and formal topiary English garden that led to a passion for creating designs on a smaller scale using air plants, cacti, succulents and a range of mosses creating beautiful terrariums.

Their love for plants and terrariums is infectious and people who join them on their workshops not only make a beautiful terrarium, but are taught about all the natural elements involved as well as provided aftercare instruction.
