Such a great way to spend a cold winter’s evening! The Botancial boys were perfect hosts and very knowledgable. Lots of great materials were made available and the prosecco was the perfect touch! Will definitely be signing up again!
I had a very enjoyable afternoon attending a Terrarium masterclass hosted by Michael and learned many interesting things about the history of Terrariums and how to prepare them. It was a fun team event with other people and I won the prize in the quizz too! A great present that also gave me something to enjoy for lots of time time to come. Highly recommended if you have green fingers and like this sort of thing.
It was a brilliant class, really unique and nothing like I've ever done before, it was an amazing experience and I would recommend to anyone to attend. I am proud to present my wonderful creation at home, so it's a lasting memory and I get to look at it all the time. Thanks Botanical boys for the opportunity and coming up with this concept.
We had such a great time in the workshop. Michael was a highly informed, experience, engaging and entertaining host for my two daughters and me.
We went as a couple - we had a fun afternoon and Darren was a great host. We would have liked a bit more choice of elements for the terrarium but appreciate the good value given the constraints of the class. The jar is a good size, bigger than we thought. The environment was very friendly, welcome and relaxed so I recommend for people considering going alone too!
A fun and informative class and I took home a beautiful terrarium that I hope will live gloriously for a long time. Thank you! 🌱
Highly recommended. It started with some terranium introduction while we enjoyed a glass of prosseco and after few recommendations we start building our own creation.
Fabulous session, wonderful terrarium at the end of it - super proud of what I was able to create with the help of the Botanical Boys. Friendly and knowledgeable, and fun ! Highly recommend.
Great class. Informative and fun. Cameron was fab. Already got a repeat booked!
I had such a fantastic afternoon with Michael and Fifi at the Terrarium Masterclass, a lot of fun and a very enjoyable, relaxing activity creating my very own terrarium, which is still looking great a couple of weeks later. I'd recommend this to anyone. It was good to get some history and science too. This was given to me as a birthday gift, an ideal present for me. I visited the shop recently too and met Solomon who was lovely and very helpful. All in all a great experience, lovely staff and a lot of fun. Thanks very much.
We got the terrarium workshop as a Christmas present and it was such a great Sunday afternoon activity. Darren was such a great teacher and made it so enjoyable, whilst teaching us about the history of botanicals and terrariums too!
I was given this workshop as a gift, and I really enjoyed it. The venue was comfortable. We were made welcome and it was friendly and informative. The finished product was bigger than I had imagined and very beautiful. A lovely afternoon.
EXCELLENT! We had so much fun doing this class and learnt some interesting facts about terrarium and plants along the way. Great activity to do with a couple of friends. The shop is gorgeous too! Thank you for having us.
The course was great, we learnt so much about how to make and care for our own terrarium and Cameron made sure we all got the help we needed. I can’t wait to try making another one and I know that I can rely on the Botanical Boys for advice with caring for my terrarium.
Great workshop - relaxed, fun and informative, with a good balance between information-giving, practical terrarium-making and time to drink prosecco and chat with others in the group. I enjoyed the experience, and was very pleased with the terrarium I created. Highly recommended!
I don't know what I was expecting but it exceeded my expectations. The atmosphere in the space we were sat in was really nice and the presentation was lovely. Cameron 'the moss man' gave an insightful history lesson and we got to create these treasures that we can hold onto for years to come. The terrariums we made were ones I would want to buy, so being able to hand make them ourselves is something really special.
A lovely relaxing afternoon spent learning about terrariums and then creating your own terrarium.
It was really enjoyable and I would highly recommend the class.
I bought this class for my niece as her birthday present and she loved it! 2 hours of fun... starting with a short history of Terrariums and then building our own creation layer by layer... very meditative and relaxing. We were also given a free glass of sparkling wine! x Thank you botanical boys!
I booked this last minute for my friends birthday present, and I’m so glad I did. We both had a wonderful couple of hours learning about the history and how to make a terrarium along With a glass of Prosecco. It was just the best thing we have both done and I highly recommend it.
Brilliant! The team was informative and helpful, the venue Samsung KX is a gem! Overall experience is positive, definitely worth a try :)
Really engaging session!
Great fun, and much more informative than I had expected. Who knew there was so much history to terrariums?
Good company, well-paced as an event, and a great sense of satisfaction by the end. Overall it was a very relaxing, fun afternoon, and it's easier to carry the terrarium home than you think....mine came all the way home to Derbyshire by train, without any of the plants moving a millimetre.
Loved making a terrarium. Cameron was a great host and tutor, with a good balance of background knowledge and instruction. We were delighted with our finished product. Highly recommended!
Loved this class! Thoroughly recommend!
Really fun and interactive. High quality materials and really cool space in the Samsung building
Me and my friend who attended had a really enjoyable afternoon. The session was interesting, interactive and creative and facilitators were really warm and approachable. Would recommend!
Fantastic experience with my 9 year old son. Educational, well hosted, super interesting and wonderful to bring a beautiful home-made terrarium. Recommended!
Thank you for a fun and educational workshop. We hope that our new terrarium will thrive, and with the care advice provided I'm sure it will go beautifully.
Really fun thing to do as a couple
My daughter and I had such a fun afternoon creating our terrarium and it is doing really well in my sunny kitchen. Lovely selection of plants and great instruction.
The host was amazing and had an admirable aura about him. The session was informative and inspiring hearing about the journey of Botanical Boys. We bought the couples ticket and it was really worth it - enjoyable and good fun for friends, family or as a date. We absolutely love our terrarium and cant wait to make more.
Other peoples reviews of this experience led me to want to buy it. And it definately lived up to my expectations. I took my mum here because shes always wanted to learn how to create a terrarium. Now we have a beautiful one at one and know exactly how to do it again. Thankyou so much!
We had a great time at the class! Michael was a great host, showed us how to make a lovely terrarium and kept us laughing throughout
Really enjoyable evening. Brilliant facilitation from Michael, and some lovely company. The terrariums looks great too. Tempted to go again for more!
A really fun and worth while experience. Highly recommend.
The workshop was fantastic. Michael bought great energy, knowledge and guidance through the workshop. Would thoroughly recommend. The quality of products to use was first class, and the we were very happy with our terrarium.
Good workshop for beginners or for trying new things. Selected plants are easy to take care of with just some basic guides. Worth the money and a guaranteed gift to bring back home. I found it more enjoyable than expected, and I think it will become my new hobby. Totally got me into the terrarium!
Great instructions and a fun history lesson on terrarium origins, as well as a quiz at the end with prizes.
Enjoy a glass of prosecco while opening up the various pre-measured packages of ingredients. The bonus plants weren't too pricy either!
I loved every part of the workshop! And I love my new terrarium :)
Really interesting and fun class and very happy with the terrarium that my husband and I made. The instructor, Michael, was knowledgeable and entertaining. Would definitely recommend.
Would recommend this workshop to anyone looking for a fun, creative and informative experience, with the added bonus of leaving with a beautiful terrarium. Cameron was fantastic and really helpful, and the prosecco was a nice touch! Overall this workshop exceeded our expectations, we were really impressed with the size and quality of the terrarium and plants provided and would love to do this again.
Amazing class, learnt a lot and also have a lovely terrarium to take home! Very good value for money!
Amazing class! Cameron was a delight. My terrarium is a work of beauty and I’m very happy. Will return with friends and family.
Lovely couple of hours! Real antidote to everything going on ! Good amount of information at the start followed by clear step by step instructions and support. Was very good pace so you never felt left behind or rushed! Will definitely recommend!
Such a fun class! Shoutout to Cameron, our host, who gave us an amazing and understanding insight about terrariums and then taught us how to make one. Me and my boyfriend absolutely enjoyed it. Listen to the history cause there’s a pop quiz at the end and they give you a gift. I WON A GINSENG TREE WOOOP WOOP. Overall 10/10 experience. :)
A great afternoon at the Botanical boys workshop. Lots of fun, well organised and a lovely setting. Xx
Fantastic and therapeutic time with the team at Botanical boys. I can’t believe how attached I am to my plants, peeking at them daily etc. Ideal for family or even group of friends. Highly recommended and can’t wait to take my girls there again
Brilliant workshop...informative, creative and fun and a lovely keepsake to care for forevermore!
A really great afternoon! The class was a gift for my partner and he loved it. Cameron was extremely patient, knowledgable and helpful. Especially for such a large group. Definitely recommend!
We had the best time making our terrariums! Thanks so much for the experience
I bought the Couples course for my husband for Christmas and we had a wonderful day out in a gorgeous setting. The course was not only a lot of fun, but the quality of the plants and jars was great. Cameron kept it interesting, and informative and we have come away much wiser as a result! Would highly recommend!!
Fantastic course, little bit of history and straight into learning by doing! Guidance on what you need to do and advice but freedom to create your own mini world with a wide choice of healthy, happy plants.
Really good class, great fun!
Excellent class, well led and worth the money!
What a great experience! It was a perfect and unexpected blend of education, entertainment and making of the terrarium. :) Michael was the ideal host.
Great masterclass! Both "boys" were super engaging and knowledgeable, led the masterclass well and helped the audience. We managed to upgrade to the eggs on the day which was a lot of fun too
We had a fantastic time making our terrarium yesterday! Lovely and relaxed, and the facilitator was excellent - would definitely recommend!
I came across this class by accident a few weeks ago and thought what a great idea. I went straight home and booked the Terrarium Masterclass.
It was a great way to spend 2 hours and really interesting. I really enjoyed getting my hands dirty and the end result looked great.
The man running the class was really helpful, friendly and informative.
I would definitely recommend this class and the Prosecco was a bonus!
Amazingly knowledgeable host. Fantastic class. So patient with all of us. So happy with what I made. Would love to come back for other classes available.
Such a fun, interactive workshop. The workshop run by Cameron was brilliant! So happy with how my terrarium turned out and he helped everybody along the way. Couldn’t recommend enough!
Nice ambiance ;)
The workshop was amazing, Cameron ( I think his name was) was super down to earth (pardon the pun) and made something a little bit nerdy come across as interesting and fun!
We were plied with Prosecco throughout and shown how to properly make a terrarium and given the option to upgrade your plants (buy slightly bigger or different ones) aswell as having lots of options already included.
I was bought the workshop as a gift and was a little worried because I like plants but I usually find learning really boring. But it was so fun, and now I have two beautiful terrariums in my flat (my partner came along too) and a little more knowledge which is always helpful.
The guys teaching the class had a casual approach, were super engaging and really easy to get on with.
I would 100% do it again or purchase it for someone else as a gift.
Fab class and loved the little history lesson at the beginning! Welcomed with bubbles and instructor was clear and approachable. Very pleased with my terrarium! Thankyou guys!
I had previously expressed disappointment in this class as all my plants died, but want to submit a new review as Botanical Boys reached out, took my terrarium back and happily replanted everything for me to ensure I was happy. They really seem to stand behind this class and the product they offer so I'm really pleased. Thanks Botanical Boys!
An incredible and wholesome experience. Brilliantly led by Cameron, who presented the history of terrariums very well, and then continued to give a very attentive session, providing support where needed. Great to walk away with something that will remind you of the experience for years to come. Highly recommend booking this.
This was a great class! As you walk in, the area in the back of the shop is set up to host about 10-12 people. Everything is pre-laid out for you (ie moss, soil, tools, aprons etc). You just have to listen and take instruction from Michael.
Michael was a great teacher; funny, informative and very helpful! The time flew by and at the end of it you've got a lovely Terrarium with a box to take it home :) Would highly recommend this course!
Cameron created a fun, relaxed and stimulating experience for us. Thoroughly enjoyed getting my hands dirty, creating something beautiful and hanging out with my friends. Highly recommend!
michael was great! really fun class, have recommended it already
The class was great. My wife and I had a lot of fun and we really enjoy our terrariums.
Excellent course. Different and fun and a great terrarium to take home. Highly recommended!
The class was good fun and we'll instructed by Cameron who was passionate and supportive to the lesson. The space used was also novel which lots of space around. The only constructive feedback would be that it would be good if they could include a larger plant in the price as opposed to just a selection of smaller ones
Excellent session run by Cameron. Interesting to cover some of the history and science and great fun to build the terrarium itself!
Very informative and great fun.
Absolutely loved it... Not only was the experience absolutely fantastic, but the setting at Samsung was really fun! Cameron was a great host, learned a lot and ended up with a gorgeous new plant friend.... Will definitely be back! More terrariums! All the terrariums!
Absolutely brilliant experience. Cannot recommend doing a workshop here highly enough.
Wonderful afternoon spent making a beautiful Terrarium, plenty of plants to choose from, engaging host Michael made us laugh out loud, the prosecco refills were the icing on the cake for what was a totally enjoyable 2 hours. My only advice would be to perhaps take a bag with you to bring your terrarium home as the paper bags provided don't look strong enough if going home by train.
Great class with some interesting history thrown in! Recommend for anyone who has green fingers.
Such a great class, Micheal was knowledgeable and friendly. Great value for money too with all the materials and clear guidance throughout.
We had a really fun time, the host Mike was really fun and made the session interactive with lots of jokes, quizzes and prizes. It was interesting too as he gave us a history of terrariums and care instructions. Really loved it!
Amazing class, both interesting and relaxing with some amazing explanation and back story on terrarium, and a really nice set up.
Would recommend 100%
Really fun and interesting session with a great instructor who made it informative and exciting.
CLASS WAS INTERESTING AND WE MADE BEAUTIUL TERRARIUMS. I RECOMMED MAKING THE LARGE EGG ONE EVEN THOUGH IT'S VERY EXPENSIVE.
Cameron was fab - super knowledgable and made the class really fun throughout. Really enjoyed the fact there was a mixture of creating and a history lesson too. Step by step instructions ensured everyone left with a fab looking piece! Loved the mixture of free plants and optional upgrades to make it look better.
Partner bought this for me as a present. Was great fun, really interactive, well explained, good choice of jars and plants, and I learnt a lot about gardening generally. I found it a relaxed and welcoming environment. The only criticism is that my partner had upgraded me but the instructor was not aware of this. If my partner hadn't told me she'd upgraded me, I would not have known to flag this and would have been given the same sized jar and plants as others who had not been upgraded.
Had a great terrarium class with Michael, highly recommended. Terrariums were larger than we expected!
The Terrarium class was super fun! I had a blast with my class and the instructor Michael was such a great teacher!
Would definitely recommend it! Thanks again BotanicalBoys!
Thoroughly enjoyed this workshop - it was really fun and interesting. Great for couples!
Great course in pleasant atmosphere. Very pleased with the terrarium.
I bought the 2 hr workshop course for my wife as a birthday present and she absolutely loved it!
Great session. The venue (at Samsung) was perfect and Cameron did a brilliant job on the history and the practicalities of the terrarium. Highly recommended.
Wonderful workshop - filled with useful info, how to care for your terrarium, the history of terrariums, and so much fun to create your own! I love my terrarium that I made with my own hands!
We had the best time at the workshop. I would highly recommend it to anyone of any age, level, interest. It was a super relaxing and fun-filled afternoon. I can't stop staring at my beautiful terrarium. Thank you!
I thoroughly enjoyed this class - Michael was engaging and made the class both informative and fun.
I haven't given the class 5 stars as I felt that value for money was slightly off balance. I upgraded to the smaller egg vessel for an extra £30 and seemed to use less materials as the base is so much smaller than the standard class jar size - but then still charged an extra £5 for an asparagus fern to put in istead. But otherwise a good class. Thak you.
Great knowledge and hands on teaching
Fun, interesting... Michael was a great host!!
Unique and a very creative experience, playing with the mucky mud sure is an endorphin booster. Both our hosts were knowledgable and super helpful in helping us create a great, hopefully self sustaining, terrarium!
Really fun day and the host, Michael, was hilarious.
great experience. very well prepared. worth it
We had a great experience at Botanical Boys, excellent explanation, resources and environment!
Many thanks to our teacher who helped us create gorgeous pieces of work :D
This was booked for a mother & son day, for his Christmas present.
Fantastic class, very professionally done. Cameron who ran the class was brilliant!! so knowledgeable and delivered the class with humour. We came away with a beautiful terrarium, mother & son so chuffed. Highly recommended.
Brilliant afternoon, excellently led and the terrariums we build are wonderful
A brilliant way to spend a bleak afternoon in December. The tutor was very knowledgeable and I left with a beautiful terrarium I had made myself.
I had booked this for my husband’s birthday. Our two daughters decided to have a go too so it was lovely to do this all together. This has been so much fun and we all thoroughly enjoyed the session. It was also very informative too, with Michael telling us about the history of Terrariums, we all enjoyed the quiz and Prosecco too! We came home with 4 lovely terrariums. Would highly recommend.
We had an amazing time at the terrarium class with Mike! Prosecco on arrival and then an amazing class atmosphere, with lots of handy tips on terrariums. We were really impressed with the terrariums we created as well. Mike made it such a fun afternoon - we couldn’t recommend him more highly. We will be back! Had a lovely time
Such a great class, we chose it because the day and location suited everyone, but also because it had the best-looking products and this was the right decision. What a fun class and we all felt like we came away with a really professional-looking wreath. The guidance and helpful hints and tips were great, and the trainers really friendly and helpful. We all had big grins on our faces when we left and would totally recommend doing this course.
Great fun, loved it. Got a history lesson as well as a lovely terrarium at the end and met some lovely people, highly recommend this course.
Really fun session with helpful leaders. I would however have liked a wider selection of decorations to personalise our wreaths.
A great wreath making course, two tutors, plenty of advice and product to use. My friend and I came home two a beautiful Christmas wreath each, even though I do not have a creative none in my body! Highly recommended
Michael was a great teacher and I managed to learn so much! Would highly recommend this class for a fun night and if anyone is interested in starting a new hobby!
The class was fantastic! Michael the host was an incredible teacher, knowledgable and very funny too, which made the class even better.
I am so pleased with what we got to create, it was fun, relaxing and we even had a tasty drink too.
Really fun class! Michael was an amazing host. It was a nice evening for a friends birthday. Would definitely recommend!
This was a wonderful class and I had such an enjoyable evening. Michael was fun, taught us a lot about terrariums and the care tips we needed to keep them alive. I love my terrarium and already thinking about my next build.
Absolutely brilliant class. Really well prepared with all the items laid out on the table. Michael was engaging and it was great to hear facts about terrariums as well as making them. The value for money for this class is great with all the items you get included and I can't recommend it enough - not only is it a soothing way to spend an afternoon but you leave with a terrarium to treasure and lots of hints and tips to look after it.
Excellent class and brilliant value for money. Couldn’t have asked for much more, the class was well structured and fun with a knowledgeable and friendly host
An amazing Christmas wreath making master class! Trudy and Inna were really attentive and patient in explaining the process step by step. Definitely coming back next year!
We all thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. But also all greed that it was Michael who really made it for us! He was absolutely fantastic and made it really fun and interesting, while also being creative.
I absolutely loved it! I got this as a present and it had never crises my mind to take such a class. It was absolutely brilliant in a super cool setting and the presenter was great and you come away with a fantastic terrarium! Lovely mixed crowd of people. I 100% recommend it.
Really enjoyed this masterclass, it exceeded our expectations. The teacher was funny and informative. Would highly recommend this masterclass.
A really lovely experience. Nice venue, informative and entertaining. Michael was an excellent host!
Class was really good fun. Great host and lots of info about the history of terrariums and how to care for them going forward. Great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
Great workshop and experience!
Fantastic session, with an absolutely lovely group of people. I learnt so much beyond the actual terrarium making, and had a load of fun - thank you so much!
The class was well organised and the teacher was attentive.
I have had prior knowledge of terrariums but there were questions unanswered, some used activated charcoal, others said not to, then some added isopods to the mix. The class was informative but dwelled too much on the origin, it was fun though and the participants at my table were friendly.
The Fittonias' were a great fit for this but some of the other upgrade plants were too big to fit in the regular terrarium provided, hence the chance to upgrade.
Perhaps you would consider having other varieties of plants that would fit.
All in all a great way to spend a few hours, gaining insight into this.
Such a great experience, Michael was a lovely teacher will definitely come again!
I booked the class for my wifes bday. It was a fantastic afternoon, Michael was an excellent host/teacher throughout the afternoon. Would highly recommend this masterclass.
As non gardeners we weren’t sure what to expect from this class but we’re not left disappointed. We had so much fun!
The instructor Michael was very engaging. A nice little group of 8 meant we could chat, laugh and compete against one another for upgrades.
Thoroughly enjoyed the class and absolutely love my terrarium!
Thank you BB :-D
It's been so much fun! Definitely would recommend and recommending to everyone! Very educational, full of games, fun and great atmosphere!
If you’re idea of returning to nature is sitting in an area akin to a large department TV sales floor, whilst your instructor tries to be heard over irritating music and other presentations, this is for you.
Really enjoyable activity. The staff are friendly and welcoming. It was interesting and entertaining. Great fun!
Loved every minute. Wonderful way to celebrate a birthday with family. Cameron was fun and informative. He was a delight. Thank you for a great evening!
Very fun time, Cameron was so great and explained everything so well. Would recommend for something different. So nice to take my terrarium home
What a fantastic couple of hours. Cameron was brilliant- very informative and offered great advice & assistance with the planting. I would definitely recommend the workshop. Thank you very much for a fab time 🌳☘️🍃🪴
It was a lovely experience. I loved the time I spent doing the terrarium, it's looking lovely. Very professional!
We really enjoyed our class, our tutor Cameron was great, definitely recommend!
Loved it and it's still alive!
Cameron was a fantastic instructor, giving us the history of terrariums which was very interesting, while also giving plenty of help when needed. The whole experience was thoroughly enjoyed by both me and my partner, and we would love to do it again!
Some tiny feedback, me and my partner didn’t drink and it would be nice if they offer a juice option for those of us who aren’t into Prosecco.
(Water was offered and we appreciated that)
Great Fun, Great Environment and we came home with two terraria - what's not to love
We had a lovely time. Cameron was patient and generous with his advice, and full of fun facts. Really pleased with my first terrarium! Will strongly recommend.
Thank you Cameron for making yesterday a fun evening. I learnt a lot about the history of terrariums, their construction and care. For future ref it would be good to have an idea of the size of jar, even a picture for when people are booking the course. Also, it would be good to have other plants to choose from for an upgrade part from the fern which was beautiful but I think I would've preferred a Ginseng tree. Either way, I thoroughly enjoyed the session and wondered if you did a more advanced course.
The class itself was great, however after cards when walking around due to rain my friends bag split and terrarium crashed to the ground.
Then later on when in a public toilet I hung my bag on a hook, the bag tapped the back of the door and the glass broke. Would be beneficial if you said to people that they are very fragile and to take extra care, especially when walking round London.
So a great class but unfortunately we both had nothing to show for it.
Amazing class, couldn’t recommend this more! Cameron was amazing and great at explaining how to build the terrarium. 5 stars and a lovely afternoon activity.
Enjoyed creating a beautiful terrarium!
Such a lovely afternoon set in a great location. Cameron certainly knew his stuff and presented all things about Terrariums in a relaxed but fun manner.
Thanks BB - I am looking forward to watching my plants grow and thrive.
Absolutely brilliant, loved it. Informative, fun and super friendly. High recommend.
Brilliant class, really fun, and very proud of our terrariums!
This class is fantastic- we booked it as a birthday present, and the recipient had a great experience. Cameron was a great host. Highly recommended!
Cameron was nothing but AMAZING! He was so knowledgable and made the class super fun ~ he really went above and beyond to make the evening special and as a result our terrariums are beautiful! We can't wait to watch them grow and hopefully return again, to be hosted by him!
An excellent way to spend the afternoon. Very well organised
Had an amazing time! Michael (our instructor) was extremely helpful and made the afternoon very fun and interesting, we learned so much, enjoyed the drinks and got along with everyone there. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS!!
In love with my terrarium! It was a great class, with limited enough numbers that you never feel left without help. The host was great, with good tips, facts and top ups of prosecco.
Such an enjoyable workshop! Went with a group of friends and we now each have a beautiful terrarium. Botanical Boys thought of everything (even Prosecco!) and Cameron was a great host. Would definitely recommend 😆
Most fun class i have ever been to
Michael was amazing
Thank you botanical boys😊
The most fun class i have ever been to
Michael was amazing, really enjoyed
Thank you botanical boys 😊
What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon!
We had such fun, learnt loads and as if by magic (and with some kind help) we ended up with two fantastic terrariums. We will certainly be back for more.
Such a brilliant workshop! I learnt a lot and I’m very pleased with my terrarium too. This was such a fun way to spend an afternoon, I’d highly recommend it!
Really great class with superb information on history of terrariums and advice on building from Cameron. Would definitely recommend.
We had an amazing experience and would recommend this to anyone who is interested and also wants to have some fun.
The team were amazing and made us feel really welcome.
Really great class - nice to have some history & background as well as the little pop quiz afterwards. Cameron was fantastic - really welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable and really added to the experience. Very pleased with how my terrarium turned out and it now has pride of place on my shelf!
What a fabulous class. Loved the combination of history, practical and super teaching. Thanks so much. Our family loved it and so nice to have such Gorgeous piece of nature to take home!
Loved the class, amazing instructor. Such a great value for money. I recommend this to anyone who is interested in learning more about terrariums and taking one home with you.
Absolutely loved the workshop
Was such a great experience and can not recommend it enough!
Our practice leader Cameron was ace, and the whole session is a hidden gem of London.
Excellent! Great setting and wonderful to learn a little about the history of terrariums. We were walked through how to create our own and given the liberty to design it how we wanted. Fantastic and rewarding way to spend an afternoon.
Had a lovely time learning about and making a fabulous terrarium with my friend as a Birthday treat. Free flowing Prosecco was an added bonus!
This was such a good class! I came away with a great knowledge of terrariums, how to care for them and where they originated from. Plus a stunning handmade terrarium that hopefully I’ll love for many many years! I’m recommending this class to everyone I know.
Really enjoyable course. Interesting bit of history before diving in and getting our hands dirty. Everyone left with an amazing looking terrarium and a big smile on their faces. Recommended.
It was amazing the team was very nice and helped us step by step plus we had Prosecco always a plus but I definitely recommend and will be coming back again
It was super well organised. A lovely setting. Big Cameron and the other person (who's name I didn't catch) were helpful, knowledgeable and entertaining. I had a thoroughly good time and have a beautiful dining table centre piece to show for it. Would thoroughly recommend it, on your own (which I was) or with friends.
We had a brilliant time. Cameron was a great and supportive tutor, full of enthusiasm and knowledge. Both of us came away with lovely terainiums, having had a fab afternoon.. Highly recommended x
What a lovely experience, we had fun, learned a lot and left with a beautiful terrarium each. Will definitely recommend to friends. Thank you guysx
Very informative and enjoyable time. Left with beautiful terrarium - very pleased.
Loved it! Instructor was great, interesting class, lots of info on history & care etc, terrarium looks fantastic!!
Great class! The instructor was knowledgeable and clear. Wonderful to get your hands stuck into some soil and get creative with plants.
The only thing I would say is it felt a little rushed, I think maybe half an hour extra would have been perfect so we have enough time for the history bit, the hands-on bit, and then any follow-up questions, etc.
Regardless of that, would still highly recommend!
Great fun, informative and creative. Thoroughly recommend!
Did it for my birthday with two friends and we loved it! Super fun and we learnt a lot.
Absolutely excellent experience! Cameron was a great teacher, outlining a bit of the history of terrariums and then guiding us through the creation of our own. Lots of alternative plant options and the finished product just looks fab. We had such fun, thank you!
Excellent workshop! Love my terrarium and the history of terrariums was also really interesting.
Loved the workshop! I attended on my own, but this can also be a fun thing to do with a friend or group of friends. I learned really interesting things about the history of terrariums and immensely enjoyed the creation of my very own one with the guys' guidance. Highly recommend!
Absolutely fantastic class, great way to spend a day and love my new Terrarium!
Fantastic day, learnt a lot and walked away with a beautiful terrarium!
Was so much fun, and educational!! The terrariums that come with the class were big as well! Would definitely recommend to everyone
It was a lovely experience! Had so much fun with my friend
Amazing all round experience with engaging and entertaining hosts.
Plenty of history and context given which made the experience feel really worthwhile.
Will recommend to all my plant loving friends
Very unique experience and Darren was a great host. would highly recommend! 10/10
A great way to spend a couple of hours. Micheal our host was great, it was informative, relaxing and you create a piece of art to take home with you.Would make a brilliant gift for that awkward person to buy for 🙂.
Highly recommend !
Great relaxing class. Learnt about Terrariums, and how to plant them and came away really pleased with my terrarium created. Was also really very covid safe with all measures fully respected. highly recommend!
I loved my terrarium class run by the Botanical Brothers on Sunday. It was a couple of hours well spent in a very relaxed atmosphere. I would recommend it to anybody who loves plants and enjoy creating beautiful things. Thank you so much.
Michael was very friendly and the workshop was informative and relaxed. I love terrariums and truly enjoyed creating one. The only thing I would have like more of is more explanation on what’s the reason we use each ingredient and how it contributes to the overall growth. I am quite geeky about it so maybe is just me! My partner loved it too and we now have two beautiful terrariums at home.
I thoroughly enjoyed my masterclass and am so pleased with the terrarium I created. The workshop environment was well set out, knowledgable tutor with excellent facilities.
Great class, instructor was brilliant and love the terrariums we made.
Nice workshop. Had a lot of fun
Really great experience and set up. I would highly recommend.
Brilliant class, we had so much fun and learnt a lot more than we expected too! Our teacher (sorry, I can't remember his name) was brilliant. Would recommend to anyone!
Great Class very relaxing and it gives you the skills to make your terrarium😊
Nice venue, relaxed but informative atmosphere & enthusiastic instruction. Really enjoyed my day & delighted with my terrarium masterpiece! :)
Both my partner and I loved the experience, our two terrariums sit happily in our bookcase. Michael has amazing horticultural knowledge and made the whole experience fun and informative.
Don’t let the covid restrictions put you off booking. Temperature checks and hand sanitiser was done, all tools are sterilised, alongside mask wearing during the experience. But once you get your hands stuck in you don’t notice that mask feeling.
I booked the class for my partner and my mother and they both thoroughly enjoyed it. They both commented on how the class was both calming and informative and they returned home with stunning terrariums that they're very proud of. I'd highly recommend this class as to gift to someone who enjoys botanicals and a quality product and service. Thank you!
Terrarium masterclass was amazing. I got to know more about it, created a beautiful terrarium and had a lot of fun. I already recommended it to all my friends.
fun and informative - great stuff!
Was a really fun experience and the host was hilarious. His assistant was also lovely. Would recommend!
Lots of fun and learnt a lot. Terrarium looks great on my desk. Thank you!
Fantastic afternoon, we loved our Botanical boy/tutor’s enthusiasm and passion, thank you!
Welcoming, friendly & very helpful...what a lovely host. Everyone left really happy & pleased with their terrarium. Love that they also offer follow up advice & help if needed.
Thoroughly enjoyed my terrarium workshop with Darren!
Learnt so much and managed to make a beautiful terrarium to take home!
Would absolutely recommend this class!
Great gift especially for people with tiny gardens!
Great teacher, really made it a relaxing fun session. All the plants and materials are great quality and they give plenty of tips to make sure you're happy with the result. Came away with a really nice terrarium, thanks!
Amazing class! Great host, very well explained and plenty of materials and opportunity to get creative!
Great session, very interesting and I love my terrarium
Danny was fabulous. So knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The course was practical and the end result was great - I really feel like I came away with the skills to build my own. What I really enjoyed was the history lesson at the beginning. I will be recommending this course to friends and family
A lovely class and a perfect gift for someone. Mine was a Mother’s Day gift. I really enjoyed learning and creating my fabulous terrarium which is now way more meaningful than just buying one off the shelf. Thanks so much
This was a brilliant class. Informative and fun, with a very lovely terrarium at the end of it! This is the second class I've done with them, and I thoroughly enjoyed it both times.
Host was entertaining and friendly, the class was great and my terrarium looks amazing!
Great lockdown activity and i'm sure would be even better in person. Will recommend to friends :)
The teacher was really helpful and friendly and encouraging. We also received all the elements of the kit which was helpful as we know others who did not. We were told it was a 2 hour workshop but only ended up being one which was not an issue in itself but a little pricey for 1 hour plus kit and postage. But the lesson itself and the end result was very fun and pleasing ! looks lovely ! thanks
I really enjoyed the way Danny presented the information and led the class. I learnt plenty of interesting things and had great fun. Would love to do it again sometime and recommend to others!

Great materials provided and a great instructor- very patient and informative.
A really lovely at home class - perfect weekend activity! We had so much fun making the terrarium and very happy with the end result. I would 100% recommend this workshop to friends & family (I already have!).
The class was really interesting - loved hearing a little about the history of the Botanical boys & how terrariums have evolved!
Material kit was great with more than enough included (soil, plants, etc) - in fact I had enough to make myself an additional mini terrarium with the remaining materials.
Would recommend to anyone who wants a chill way to spend an afternoon, especially as the end product is rewarding but low maintenance!
An enjoyable and absorbing session . All arrangements from booking, delivery of materials and Zoom link were excellent. Friendly and informative teaching. Thrilled with the result which is still looking good!
Loved this class - it was such a creative , mindful and relaxing way to spend a Sunday in lockdown with not much else to do. Definitely recommend this - teacher was great and the group was small but engaging and fun. Try it!
This class was amazing and the kit supplied was very high quality. Our teacher, Danny, was absolutely lovely and the whole family (age 10 to 77) enjoyed the class enormously. Thanks guys!!
Great materials, informative and relaxing experience
great class. Did online, kit arrived in good time, nice to have some history too. loved getting hands into the soil, moss etc. very grounding.
Clear and friendly teacher, and lovely terrarium at the end of it!
Really enjoyable class. The time flew by and I learnt so much! I have recommended the class to friends. I now have a new hobby.
An engaging workshop delivered with real sensitivity to the current times. Very mindful and gentle to meet with a group online and learn about the background and history of terrariums before starting. It was also great to hear how the Botanical Boys started and what they do. It was fun to see how differently we all made our terrariums and hear everyone's backstory. Thank you so much for a great online class - the quality of the items delivered and the teaching was so high. Really delighted.
Brilliant workshop, funny and informative with a lovely glass garden to take home.
Really liked the workshop and Michael was really nice and made the session interactive. The only thing I’d correct is the venue . Although it’s grand , it was rather loud and hence quite difficult to focus on what Michael was saying . I would definitely organise the session somewhere a bit more intimate
Lots of giggles and a gorgeous wreath to take home. What more could I ask for?!
Absolutley fantastic. The quality of products and teaching was superb. Highly recommend. The boys were fantastic teachers and all of the wreaths looked amazing. They were really high quality with unlimited materials to ensure a quality finish.
I bought this workshop as a gift for my partner and he absolutely loved it! Really friendly and fun atmosphere, knowledgeable staff and a gorgeous terrarium to take home at the end. Definitely recommend!
I truly enjoyed the Christmas wreath making class. It was so satisfying to get your hands dirty and create a memorable festive eco-friendly decoration to display on my front door. I was quite pleased with my design, and never would have imagined I could create such a thing. Highly recommended and would look forward to taking this class again!
I really enjoyed this class, Daniel and Neo were really helpful and they just brought the happy vibes. I would highly recommend for anyone who just wants some normality.
Great fun, lovely roomy space and enthusiastic teacher. Learnt more about Terrariums as well as got to create my own to take home and treasure.
Really fun. Danny was massively engaging and supportive. Did this online after a series of unavoidable cancellations but it still worked and plants arrived unharmed in post. Would definitely recommend.
I loved the course. The teacher was very friendly, informative, clear and positively engaged with everyone to make sure they were involved and following along. All the materials received from the Botanical Boys were well packaged and wonderful quality and I am delighted with my finished terrarium!
I got this as a birthday gift for a friend and we both loved it! The class itself was super fun and refreshing, and the teacher Danny was great. He was really clear and supportive, answering any questions and checking how we were getting along. He was also really funny and nice and made the class loads of fun. Plus the plants and the terrarium itself looks great!
The plants and terrarium kit was delivered on time and in great condition and really timely. I had some questions about the delivery and the kit itself before the class and the Botanical Boys were really helpful and responsive to all of my queries.
Definitely try this out! I will definitely check out their store in Kings Cross once lockdown is over.
Thanks for a great class!
Great workshop, very dynamic and interesting. I really had a great time. The online version works very well.
The most loveliest class, very well put together and all done very well. The teacher was great and we had a great few hours workshop. Would highly recommend to anyone
We utterly loved the terrarium beginners class, and are already planning going back for the advanced one! Our host was super-charismatic and made it so fun. The quality of the plants and equipment was excellent and several weeks on, our terrariums are thriving! Honestly couldn't recommend it enough and have already raved about it to friends, who have already booked!
Had an awesome experience at this terrarium class. Great vibe from all the team at Botanical Boys and I came a way with a new found connection with nature. Highly recommended!!
The workshop itself was good. The trainer had a great energy and the experience was fun. However, it was 3 of us doing the course, and a couple of weeks after we took at home the terrariums we made at the workshop, all the plants had died and there was mould. All 3 of us followed the exact guidelines and kept the terrariums as suggested but weirdly they all died at the same time. Of course when dealing with plants there might be occasions where the plants don't survive but in this occasion is hard to believe it was a coincidence for all 3 of us.
Really fun workshop - entertaining and quite therapeutic! Host really knew his stuff (and plants). Thought was good value for money. Fingers crossed we can keep the terrariums alive!
Michael was an excellent host and teacher for this masterclass. The level of engagement and fun was just right, and the prosecco was an added bonus! Really enjoyable and would book something similar again.
I really enjoy my time at the Terrarium Masterclass. We had an introduction on the terrarium history which was very interesting and then built our own Terrarium with the advise of an amazing teacher. It is a very good price for value as we go home with our own Terrarium. I really recommend this class! Thank you Botanical boys
I loved it! It was a fun class. It’s very relaxing to make a terrarium! Love, love, love the finished product! Love looking at the terrarium!
One of the best workshop I have ever attended. My terrarium looks amazing and the "boys" were super nice, helpful and very very funny! Such a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon. And I feel super lucky I managed to attend the workshop before lockdown!
HIGHLY recommended it!
ah one more thing: prosecco is included! I had 3 glasses :))
It was a really great class! Excellent facilitator. Had so much fun and really connected to nature. They're amazing at explaining what we're doing and why. And I can't wait to make more terrariums.
I did this with my 3 kids to kick off the half term and it was amazing, the kids had a great time and the team at botanical boys were great, my kids even learnt about the history of terrariums :)
This is a great activity for both adults and kids.
I had a very enjoyable afternoon making my own terrarium with Botanical Brothers. I found the class to be informativve and fun! Top class materials and teaching. The end result stunning! Would definitely recommend.
Super fun & informative! Will definitely go back! Thank you again :)
This workshop was so much fun! Informative, interactive and different to anything we'd done before, we had a great couple of hours. The terrariums are much bigger than the photos suggest, and the workshop was more than worth the money. I would definitely sign up for another workshop with Botanical Boys!
Really enjoyed the class, the teacher was really informative and fun to listen to. The terrariums looked great when finished, but unfortunately my case got broken on the way home - maybe bring bubble wrap if your traveling a long distance? Definitely recommend the class though!
A really fun experience and a beautiful keepsake to take away at the end of it. Even a non-gardener, non-artistic person like myself was able to make something really cool. The teacher, Dan, was a really interesting, friendly bloke who brought a great energy to the class and was knowledgable and skillful. I would highly recommend to a friend and may even do the session again myself.
We had so much fun at the Terrarium class- it was fun, relaxing and a great way to cut off! Thank you!
Danny was informative, kind and patient. A great class which I recommend to all!!
Loved the workshop! The team was lovely, very helpful and great teachers. It was a very fun and great experience to learn more about planting and keeping plants alive! I booked this class for me and my two friends as a birthday surprise and we had a blast.
It was such a lovely class, I had an amazing time and the team were so friendly - thanks Botanical Boys!
The workshop was really great. Well crafted. Danny and Michael were very knowledgeable and the space was really nice in the Samsung shop above coal drops yard. Great date idea with prosecco a bonus!
Danny (I hope this is how you spell it!) and Michael absolutely made the experience. They were engaging, funny, helpful and knowledgeable. It was such a great terrarium class for us beginners and in a really cool setting. We had such a great time and it was a perfect “social-distanced” activity during these crap times! Couldn’t recommend more. Thanks for a great time, Jon and India. X
Fun bday gift activity for a friend. Nice planty/workshopy area n people. Was good to get a drink, terrarium history intro, info about terrariums eg the layers needed, care, biology etc. Liked that they "hid" dinosuars around the room that you can add to your terrarium. The plants included (fittonias) were nice but would have been better to have another variety included in the price instead of £5 upgrade choice ie as standard get maybe 2 fittonias in diff colours n a diff plant. Came home with a decent piece thats still alive.
Excellent Workshop! The guys did a very good job of making everyone feel welcome, providing an informative session of the history of terrariums, topping up our Prosecco glasses and of course walking us through how to best create our terrariums. The end result was fantastic! Perfect for a casual outing or even a special event (we went for my friend’s birthday treat...safe to say she thoroughly enjoyed it!). Highly recommend if you’re looking for something that’s a bit different!
We had a lovely afternoon making terrariums! Have come away with a beautiful, living work of art. Our instructors were relaxed, humorous and knowledgeable. Now to hope mine survives!
Really fun, it was great to spend time getting creative, learning about nature.
This class was brilliant! The facilitators gave really clear instructions and made it super fun. Best way to spend a Sunday afternoon - I would highly recommend this :)
I got this as a birthday present for my partner and we had the best time! You learn about the history of terrariums and get your hands dirty quick making one. Would recommend this to everyone!
A really nice relaxing thing to do, especially if you’re in London at the minute with all the restrictions! Would definitely do it again
Great experience at such a pleasant place with amazing tutors. It was my first class since March/start of lockdown and I enjoyed it so much. I wanted to buy a terrarium for a long time, but instead of buying it making it myself was a good idea. I'm already planning my second terrarium - second class.
Great class, would definitely recommend
Super fun class and helpful staff! We were glad that we rescheduled instead of getting a refund due to covid. Great to support businesses that deserve it. Highly recommend this class!
Fantastic fun day afternoon. Michael and Danny were fantastic hosts and were very helpful in every way. Could not recommend it highly enough.
We had such a great experience at the Botanical Boys Terrarium Masterclass! Everyone was super friendly and helpful, the class was great value for money and everyone's masterpiece ended up looking beautiful! A really relaxing atmosphere and the perfect way to spend an afternoon!
Thoroughly enjoyed the terrarium making course! The setting and location was perfect with great instruction and materials provided. We were very pleased with both the making process and the final product!
Relaxing and educational - perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
The terrarium class was great - the hosts were so friendly and helpful, and did a great job of walking us through how to make a terrarium. The whole session worked really well and was organised brilliantly. I'd 100% recommend everyone checks out the Botanical Boys :-)
Really informative session and great value for money. We have come away with two beautiful terrariums as well as the skills required to look after them. We have completed a lot of different workshops and this was by far the best one we have done - would definitely recommend!
Really enjoyed the experience. Only comment I had was that there wasn’t much flexibility in terms of creativity. We were all given the exact same materials/plants. It would have been nice to be able to pick your own materials from a slightly wider range of choice. Otherwise it was great fun. Thanks!
Great workshop, really well run and organised. Such a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon!
Wonderful class! I went alone and everyone was so friendly, the teacher Michael was so knowledgable and I left with a beautiful terrarium which is thriving. Would definitely come back to make another.
This class was excellently presented and carried out , we all left very content and happy with our results.
Enjoyed it so much.
Was entertaining as well as informative by our lovey teacher Micheal.
Fantastic Masterclass! The atmosphere was super friendly and relaxed. You leave the class with many tips, insights and of course a gorgeous terrarium! Highly recommended
Great class with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. I made a beautiful terrarium (all materials provided and a chance to upgrade to different plants if wanted), had a glass of Prosecco and learnt a little about the origins of terrariums. Highly recommend it!
Really fun, great instructor, and good value for money as buying a terrarium of that size would cost a lot more than the class.
All of my friends are now jealous of my terrarium and will be signing up for classes soon!
Great class ran by two brilliant guys. They're both very knowledgeable, and reallt set the scene with the history of terariums. The class is very much 'this is how you do it' and then off you go! It's a great way to get the creative juices flowing. My fiance upgraded to the Eden jar and had people from all over the class/shop commenting on it. I would definitely recommend going, and will perhaps come back with more friends another tike!
Loved it! Anyone looking for something new to do this is perfect and great value
I really enjoyed this class, it was great to hear the background and make our own Terrarium, the prosecco also went down a treat! Would definitely recommend for something different to do :)

Had a really nice time, relaxed but informative and creative. Would go again.
Such a fun and enjoyable afternoon making our own terrariums with Botanical Boys. Very knowledgable and great plants meant we came away with something we’re really proud of. Highly recommended!
Really good fun. An exercise in mindfullness. Great quality products.
What a great way to spend a couple of hours! Firstly, the space used was fantastic. The workshop was set out well, making it easy to feel comfortable and safe within social distancing guidelines.
The guys presenting were brilliant! From the really interesting history around terrarium lesson and the ‘how to build the terrarium’ guide, the guys were both engaging and attentive.
The glass of bubbles was a lovely touch and we had a really enjoyable time creating our little gardens.
I would definitely recommend the workshop and will be booking again for birthdays. Thanks Botanical boys
Had a great relaxing time at the terrarium making class by the Botanical Boys. The instructor was attentive and genuinely shared the love for plants with the class.
The class was great fun. Both my daughter and I enjoyed it, and we are very pleased with our terrariums - thank you!
Such a great experience!
The masterclass was very simple but engaging at the same time and very relaxing. Thoroughly enjoyed the day and came back with a beautiful Terrarium
I really enjoyed this terrarium class. Very spacious working area at the Samsung shop, the guys were super friendly and helpful, very generous with materials too. Loved the brief terrarium history intro and visiting the shop for a plant treat afterwards. Highly recommend it
I really enjoyed myself in this class, it was a great mix of education plus practical work. I loved how generous they were with the materials as it really allowed us to make our vessels exactly how we wanted to!
My partner and I attended a Terrarium Class a few weeks ago after getting the experience for my partners birthday. We were made to wait for the experience due to COVID-19 but it was worth it. Straight from the start we were made to feel welcome and it was fascinating to learn about the history of terrariums, as well as how Botanical Boys got to where they are today. To date, our terrariums look amazing and we hope to get many months out of them. We also got some great tips for looking after plants too, and we’ve already started to see the benefits from some advice! An experience I would definitely recommend to anyone who has A green thumb, or wants to learn more about plants, and it would make a great gift for someone! We will definitely be back! :)
Great thanks! My only suggestions would be:
The trainer could speak a bit louder since in the airy room, with Air con, and masks on, it was hard to hear him (and/or mix up where he stands in the room, though I realise easier for everyone to face the front)
I'm not sure the stones /rocks etc were spread out across all tables at the start - there were none on our table so seemed like we didn't know that opportunity was on its way!
I had a great time and am really happy with my terrarium, thanks!
Love the class. Was lovely to learn about the history of plant terrariums and the technique to make one. The tutors were all nice and knowledgable. I love the terrarium I made and would love to do it again with friends/family. The class was conducted in a nice studio with an air-conditioner. Major bonus point.
Good class, both very welcoming and willing to answer questions about the class and beyond.
Hosts were really knowledgeable and friendly. They made special arrangements for social distancing, it felt safe and not over the top. The activity itself is fun and calming. The end result looks great in our bedroom. Would recommend.
Lovely teachers, bit of bubbly, great venue, learned a lot and came away with a great terrarium.
Fantastic class, the teacher was really friendly and welcoming , great atmosphere in the session and i now have a gorgeous terrarium! Highly recommended
Was a fantastic experience!! Not only did i get to express my creative side but learn about the history and maintenance for my new Terrarium. Has definitely solidified my love of plants and now Terrariums, I would recommend this class for everyone, it was fun, social, relaxing and satisfying to walk away with a beautiful end product.
I thoroughly enjoyed this class - it was very relaxing and mindful and I am really pleased with the Terrarium I produced. It was the perfect activity and the Samsung space is lovely and airy so felt very safe. it was a shame that we had to wear masks for the entire experience as we was plenty of space and we were easily 2m away from each other but I guess thats just the way things are at the moment.
The terrarium class with Darren was excellent. We learnt about the history of plants in a glass bottle/container, how to build our bell jar gardens and the conditions needed to keep it at its best. It was a lot of fun and Darren is good at getting people relaxed and interested. I did an online class but now the in-workshop classes are back too. All best to Botanical Boys and their enterprise.
Very therapeutic! Loved the class 3 hours went just like that! Would definitely reccomend. Wasnt too fussed with the Samsung phones but understood this needed to be done to rent the space. Would have been good to be able to choose a selection of plants. Other than that, my husband and I really enjoyed it and are very very happy with our creations!
I had an amazing time during class. The instructor was super patient and all students were able to complete their Terrariums during the time we had. I also loved the surprise he sent :) I'd definitely do it again!
The class was very insightful and I got such a cute terrarium with the help of the botanical boys! They give fantastic tips and the class overall was really lovely!
Excellent class, enjoyed it. Learnt a lot
Darren was very friendly and cheery and answered questions well. its not the easiest class to do on zoom but think we managed!
A fantastic creative class which didn't loose anything by being online - you sometimes had to show the camera as opposed to the tutor coming over and looking as he would have done normally, but that worked well. The tutor was great - really enthusiastic and provided lots of history as a bonus. I did it with my son and we both loved it and were delighted with the result, which was much more professional than either of us expected.
Thoroughly enjoyable. Lovely to also learn a little about the history behind the terrarium. Lots of tips and tricks for caring for the terrarium and detailed explanation of the layers required.
We thoroughly enjoyed our class, Darren made us feel confident and comfortable, the products were of great standard and we were delighted with the end results! Thank you so much for a lovely Saturday early afternoon. We'll be back 😊
I was disappointed that the in person class had to be cancelled, but this online version was excellent! Al the resources were sent out well in advance and the online session was very informative and enjoyable. Really recommend!
What a wonderful online workshop! Thoroughly enjoyed it and came away with a fantastic terrarium thanks to the tips and inspiration from Darren. We did this as a group of three friends who wanted to still do something together and all had so much fun. The kits came quickly and contained everything we needed to take part in the session but it was also good seeing what everyone else was making with theirs as there are different kits available. Huge thanks and will absolutely be back for another one.
Great class with a fantastic teacher who really inspired me to want to reconnect with nature and grow many more plants!! I feel so pleased with my creation and so inspired every time I look at my terrarium, I will certainly be doing more of their classes, Darren mentioned they are thinking of doing an indoor plant, herb class to be more self sustainable without a garden and I am 100% needing that class in my life!! Originally I bought this online class as a Mother's Day gift for my mum but it actually made a huge impact on me as well, thank you!
My nephew and I really enjoyed the class! Instructions were good and easy to follow and we received everything we needed in advance of the class. The end result was beautiful. A fun activity to do in isolation!
My sister and I had a brilliant time creating our terrariums. It was a great way to spend remote quality time with each other during the lockdown! The (plentiful) materials all arrived well-wrapped up ahead of the class. Darren was a very friendly, knowledgeable and creative tutor, highly recommend his classes. We both love our finished terrariums, they are such a beautiful way to bring the outside indoors.
I fully recommended the Botanical boys online terrarium class. It was fun, creative, educational, brings nature into your home and helps take your mind away thinking about the current circumstances we are in. It's also a great idea for a birthday gift where you can have a joint online session with friends and family as I did with this particular class.
This class was wonderful, not only do I now have a beautiful terrarium that I can display in my home as something I have made, but I also learned a lot about plant keeping and the history of terrariums which was a real bonus!
I had a wonderful time and now I also have a wonderful terrarium at home. Thanks Botanical boys!
An absolutely fantastic experience that was a welcome distraction during this time of uncertainty. Darren was a great teacher and threw in some super interesting facts about the history of Terrariums! Thanks so much Darren :)
The class was good, I enjoyed making the terrarium and it is still alive! I wasn't so keen on the class space though as it was taught in the Samsung building, on a open floor in a public area, where there was lots of hustle and bustle and noises of other things going on. Our host had a microphone, so hearing him wasn't a problem, it just wasn't as tranquil as I would have liked and seemed an odd setting for something so mindful. The theme for the class was mindfulness and connecting to nature but the setting was like being in the middle of a shopping centre. I did still enjoy the activity though.
Highly recommend! I had wanted to sign up for a botanical boys workshop for a while and when I saw they were offering online workshops I was intrigued. The kit arrived smoothly and was packed with everything I needed for the lesson. The lesson itself was informative, fun and relaxing too! As it was via zoom it was great to see the other participants and teacher; it was just like being there. Highly recommend. If you’re thinking about doing it, just sign up and go for it!
Loved this! Of course we were gutted that the face to face workshop had to be canceled but the online class was brilliant!
Darren packed and sent kits to us and we built our own bit of paradise at home.
The virtual workshop worked really well. Throughly enjoyed the workshop and have already decided that I'd defo do it again!
Thank you Botanical Bros for making a very stressful time a little joyous!
This class was so great! Love my terrarium!
The classes was small so the teacher could give us attention when we needed it. The whole experience was fantastic and the terrariums turned out better than I expected. Would definitely recommend to do!
Great fun getting stuck in and using your hands, and in a really relaxed and friendly environment. It’s definitely inspired me to make some more of my own!
Wonderful class. Thank you!
We had a great time, learnt a lot and have come away with our own terrariums which we absolutely love. Both of us have said we will definitely be doing this again!
Fantastic! Would definitely recommend!
Amazing class! The guys that run this are so knowledgeable and made the experience so much fun. I came home with a beautiful terrarium and a massive amount of plant care tips. I highly recommend!
Great environment, fun class and welcoming hosts!
My boyfriend and I attended the SamsungKK session on 2 November 2019 (13:00-15:00). We weren’t sure what to expect, having been recommended by a colleague, but overall had a very enjoyable time. The session lead was friendly and approachable, and provided an interesting history lesson on the evolution of the terrarium. Champagne and water were also provided, which was a nice touch.
The lesson itself was well instructed and very hands-on, with great scope for creative freedom. We were given clear instructions on how to ensure garden longevity and there was a wide variety and ample supply of materials on offer. The resulting terrariums were generally excellent across the board and most seemed to really embrace the experience.
However, there were a few elements that detracted from the overall experience which The Botanical Boys may wish to address for future sessions. Predominantly, we found the venue to be very loud (open to the public) and considering terrarium-making is pitched as a relaxing and mindful experience, this was quite off-putting and felt more like a live event than a closed session. Matters were compounded by the fact the sound system was hit and miss (even switching off at one point) and at times it could be difficult to hear all instructions.
The session leader also hinted that they do smaller lessons (20 people was quite a lot) where they serve tea, and it was a shame this refreshment wasn’t on offer.
I really enjoyed the informative and relaxing Terrarium Masterclass. The Botanical Boys are really friendly and I love my first terrarium :-) Thank you
Really really loved this workshop. Took my mum for her birthday. The guys that run the class are so lovely and offer answers to all our plant questions. They went above and beyond and catered for every level of plant knowledge. The finished products look amazing. Definitely will be back.
Had a great time. it was engaging, fun, and educational. I love my terrarium!!
