One of the greatest experiences I had. The workshop was unique, the host super friendly. We had a very relaxing evening where we learned about the history of the terrariums and we build two of those beautiful pieces of art. I strongly recommend for everybody who would like to actually build something and to be close to nature. The workshop facility itself is amazing! Its just worthy to go there and spend some time looking at all terrariums :)

This workshop was very interesting as Darren from Botanical Boys gave us a lesson on how terrariums we’re key in transporting tropical plants from Overseas to England in the Victorian times. Then we started to choose what we wanted in our handmade glass eggs. I chose a miniature Ginseng tree that sits on a moss hill & I added some rocks for a feature with a tiny dog 🐕 figure. I loved it & so did my friend. Really worth the money as I made something special & we had fun.

Excellent workshop, enjoyed the history of terrariums and had a lovely 2 hours creating our own egg shaped terrarium. We were celebrating a birthday and the fizz was a fabulous surprise. Would recommend it - it’s relaxing and therapeutic getting your hands in soil.

Thoroughly enjoyed our Terrarium Masterclass. It was very informative and good fun. Darren clearly has a strong passion for these wonderful miniature indoor gardens, which came across in his teaching. I have a beautiful Glass egg terrarium to show off to friends and family. I can't wait to make more. Helen Thank you Darren for a memorable morning.

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.
