Daytime

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. Plus, they've got Prosecco!!

You will be taught why and how to add layers to your glass jar to prepare the perfect living conditions for your plants.

  1. Planting techniques and what plants we use for these environments
  2. The use of horticultural charcoal and why we use it
  3. Introduction to moss for the landscape
  4. Decorative items to personalise your garden jar
  5. Gift bag and practical advice given for taking care of your garden

If you are keen to learn more and build a larger garden, they run a longer 2 hour session, please see the Obby Botanicalboys pages to book in!

I killed my last terranium so decided to give this class a go. It was wonderful. Darryl & Ben have an amazing space with so much inspiration & SO many options to play with (including cute little figures to help add some personality). My creation is awesome, I learnt a lot (including sand layering techniques and plant care) and I had so much fun.

Cannot recommend enough! The class was such a wonderful experience. Darren was an amazing teacher, the location is beautiful and the atmosphere is both fun and peaceful, there are so many inspiring ingredients available to craft your terrarium with, and you get something special to take home and treasure at the end :) I loved it!

When my friends and I signed up for this I wasn't entirely sure what to expect, I had never booked anything through Obby before but I was excited to give it a go. We had an incredible time with the Botanical Boys, Darren and Ben, and cannot recommend their class enough. Being welcomed into their lovely home full of terrarium inspiration, my friends and I had a great time and definitely intend to take another class. Darren was a great instructor who is obviously very knowledgable and incredibly patient while Ben did a great job of making us feel welcome and topping up our prosecco while taking lovely photos of the whole evening. I am really looking forward to my next class!

Terrarium Jar Eco-System Masterclass - Kilner Jar 1 hour 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.
