What you will do
Learn to design, plant and sustain your own garden-in-a-jar.
WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT? You will be guided through the different steps so you can head home with your very own self-sustaining, verdant wonderland.
Give the gift of green or keep your terrarium to yourself... they make the perfect roommate and add personality to any hot desk.
WHAT'S INCLUDED? We will cover everything from construction to caring for your masterpiece. As well as being given all the materials and plants you need to create your own terrarium, you’ll learn how to make the tools to work with difficult bottle shapes and how to choose plants which thrive in their own biosphere.
LOCATION & TIMES Group and private classes take place at my studio in Shoreditch. Group sessions take place once a month and last around 1.5 hours. Book a private workshop, if you would like to run this class around your schedule.
Wherever you are in the world, I can join you in the comfort of your own home for a virtual class. I will provide you with a shopping list beforehand and help you source everything you need for the class.
Book a private session for up to 2 people on a date of your choosing or join a Saturday group class.
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
This is a Flexitime class, which means the teacher can run this class around your schedule.

About your host, Alyson Mowat Studio
Alyson Mowat founded her business in 2013 to create natural scenes and lush backdrops in urban settings. Prior to this, she moved from South Africa to London, where she trained as a graphic designer and worked in the fashion and jewellery industries.
With a focus on hand-crafted, artisan pieces, Alyson draws on her passion for style and beautiful things when designing her terrarium collections and plant arrangements. She holds indoor planting workshops with the ethos of elevating plants to works of art and has written a book entitled Terrariums & Kokedama.
“My story is one of cultivation, curation and adventures across the globe in search of green inspiration. In my desire to celebrate nature yet remain firmly rooted in the urban jungle of London, my aim is to create natural scenes and lush backdrops in city settings."
