Classes

2 hour workshop

Evening

Get your hands dirty and learn how to make a closed terrarium. A Terrarium is an indoor garden and is the perfect way to bring the outside in. Display yours on a desk or in a small space. We will spend a couple of hours putting the terrarium together. It is really therapeutic so the perfect way to unwind after a tough day at work.

Terrariums are a self-contained eco system. Heat and light pass through the glass walls and the plants photosynthesise. Condensation forms on the glass and drips down into the soil watering the plants.

You will have a choice of plants and pebbles to make your terrarium unique to you. Please note that as this is a closed Terrarium workshop we do not use cacti or succulents as they prefer to be in the open.

You will leave with a care guide and a new found skill.

Did you know?

Terrariums were very on trend in the Victorian times. They were discovered by accident in 1842 when a Nathaniel Bagshawe Ward, a scientist who was observing insects, observed that ferns survived in glass vessels. He then started to transport plants in these vessels between the Uk and Sydney without any issues.

This was the best class I've ever done. Sarah was so lovely and welcoming and had all the things you need to create a beautiful self watering terrarium (including wine and snacks!). Perfect class to destress after a crazy day!

Really fun and interactive, well prepared and considered. Because we were a small group it was easy to chat to other people and share ideas and materials. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for an unique and super fun way of relaxing after work. The wine and snacks is such a good idea too! :-)

I thought the workshop was really interesting. I learn a lot about the impact of plants on our health as well as how to make and maintain a Terrarium. It was a really fun but also relaxing atmosphere. We were provided with all of the tools and materials we needed to make our Terrrarium and we got to take the finished jar home!! I would Highly recommend this workshop.

Really friendly teacher and cosy environment to learn how to make terrariums. Sarah was great explaining and doing the demo at the beginning. When we had a go at doing our terrarium, Sarah was always available to give advice and help out. Perfect way of spending an evening learning something new!

Really enjoyed the class and would recommend to everyone to sign up and take part. Not being that green fingered and wondering how hard could this be... I came out with a whole new love for plants and lots of plant care info. Sarah the host was warm and friendly and even provided us with drinks and nibbles throughout the duration of the workshop. It was a nice informal setting, and the host was very patient and demonstrated us through each step of the process and was on hand to help and give advice throughout. I went home with a great terrarium and feel inspired to make some more! The after care advice was spot on - which I followed to the T and guess what the Terrarium is still alive! I can't wait to sign up for another class.

Although I attended the terranium class I actually made a kokedama (Japanese moss ball). The class was good fun - very relaxed and well organised, with a follow up email on how to care for my new plant.

Had such a wonderful experience. Beautiful setting, very calming, was really therapeutic to get my hands dirty with the soil yet got my creative juices going with all the planting and decorating with pebbles. All the equipment was provided and the teacher was lovely and warm. Loved every minute of it and so proud of my terrarium I took home with me! Also such a bargain compared to other courses out there in making a terrarium.

I had a brilliant time learning how to make a terrarium, it was really relaxing and fun and the finished terrarium still looks great two weeks later! We had a lovely selection of plants, and Sarah was very knowledgable about the different species. Also great to have red wine and snacks provided! A great experience all round.

This is not the sort of thing I'd normally be up for doing but I got roped into it by my wife due to her new-found obsession with plants. I can truly say that it was a fantastic evening and I really enjoyed it way more than I thought I would. I found the class really chilled and therapeutic. The people were great, nice wine, superb location. Sarah was so informative and enthusiastic, and my new terrarium is sitting proudly on my desk at work, brightening up the office! Highly recommend doing this class.

Absolutely loved it! Really didn’t know what to expect but Sarah was fantastic the perfect host as we arrived to get the conversation going before we got down to the serious (relaxing) business of making. You could just feel everyone becoming immersed in creating their creation and demonstrating their own style (all really lovely). The aftercare and guide to allow you to continue this as a hobby at home makes it very feasible to get making. Top tips for where to get the plants, equipment and simply keep them alive! Would definitely recommend and will be keeping an eye on the future workshops.

About your host, Succulence

Tired of feeling sick , anxious and underwhelmed by the grey city life they were living Sarah started Succulence with a simple need to improve the quality of the air that they were breathing. Inspired by Delhi dwellers and their reliance on house plants to help clean the air an obsession with plants was born. It didn't take long for the main focus to become hard to kill good looking house plants for a busy urban life and thats when Sarah's terrarium infatuation began .

Terrariums are a fantastic way to bring the outside in with little or no maintenance once they have been made. They look and great and there is something super satisfying about getting your hands dirty whilst making one.

If you have any questions, please contact me using the 'contact host' button on the website page.
