1 hour workshop

Daytime

Come join the Botanical Boys in partnership with Tom Dixon Factory in Kings Cross offering you a stunning studio environment to build your very own living terrarium kilner jar garden. Upgrade options to larger glass vessels are available at discounted prices for this special week of fun events on the day. This is for a Kilner Jar but you can upgrade on the day! 2 hours max experience.

The GROW event is part of London Craft Week ahead of Tom Dixon's Design Research Studio and IKEA latest collaboration for Chelsea Flower Show 2019. Botanical Boys are hosting an exciting set of terrarium design classes which informs and inspires new ways of using plants at the Coal Drops Yard showroom. Come see our terrariums on display which will be at Chelsea Flower Show as part of the GROW project between Tom Dixon and IKEA.

By creating a terrarium it helps you to feel calm and relaxed and by getting your hands dirty you are literally connecting with nature in this class. You will be able to add rocks, stones and moss features and of course a selection of plants will be available to you. Once you have completed your garden, it will become a self-sustaining eco system where the plants will thrive and take care of themselves. The Botanical Boys will take you through a brief history of terrarium design and tell you how one medical doctor changed how we are able to grow and transport plants since the 1800's. Your experience covers:

  • Upgrade options on the day to larger glass vessels
  • You will be taught why and how to add layers to your glass jar to prepare the perfect living conditions for your plants.
  • Planting techniques and what plants we use for these environments
  • The use of horticultural charcoal and why we use it
  • Introducing green moss for the landscaping
  • Decorative items to personalise your garden jar
  • Gift bag and aftercare advice
  • Prosecco

Upgrade your experience on the day to one of our Medium Glass Eggs, Cork Jars or Large Glass Eggs for an even more special experience and piece of living interior design to take home with you! Our range of glass vases will be available to view on the day at Tom Dixon Factory and you can upgrade there and then before your class starts.

ALL Upgrades listed below are on top of your standard £25 Kilner Jar fee at additional discounted prices for this event:

Option 1: Upgrade to our larger 3 ltr Chimney Cork jar for additional £15, normally £55 RRP

Option 2: Upgrade to our Medium Glass Egg terrarium for additional £25, normally £65 RRP

Option 3: Upgrade to our Large Glass Egg terrarium for additional £45 normally £89 RRP

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.
