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!

Really great workshop run by Botanical Boys in their amazing flat in Dalston which is full of terrariums and other lovely decorative pieces! I learned so much about terrariums and even made my own to take home that I feel oonfident I can take care of! We were given red bush tea and prosecco during the class too. This is great idea for a gift to someone as it's an experience that can be shared and you get to take something home. I will definitely do one of their other classes!

The class was excellent. The guys who run it are really nice, funny, and know their stuff. Everyone in the class made a great Terrarium and we were allowed to take them home - plus there was prosecco! The only comment I would have for the botanical boys is that they kept showing us weird things they had been given that we could put in our Terrarium, like toy dinosaurs and cocktail flare sticks - maybe reel this in a bit and just let people enjoy the natural aspect of it a bit more. This is a small qualm though, because the class was incredible and I would highly recommend it.

What a lovely class. The Botanical Boys are living out their dream, caring for plants, creating beautiful terrariums and spreading the love. The location was stunning: a tower full to the brim with green life. I'm really pleased with my terrarium. There was tons of choice when it came to things like stones, gravel and decoration, and the plants themselves were healthy and pretty. The green tea on arrival and the Prosecco was a nice touch. I left feeling utterly soothed and pleased with myself by the time I left with my terrarium, and it's doing really well at home. There's plenty of aftercare info available from The Botanical Boys so I'm not worried if anything goes wrong with it; I'll be able to put it right. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the workshop to anybody, whether they're green fingered or not.

Terrarium Introduction Class - Upgrade Vessels Available 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.
