This class was a really calming, informative way of learning about terrariums. Hayley is super knowledgeable about the plants, how to plant up, after-care, everything. It was a real treat to be able to see friends whilst learning a new skill. I would definitely recommend the class to anyone who is green-fingered or wants to be!!

My fiancé and I enjoyed this workshop so much! Everything arrived in the post perfectly packaged and the workshop was really informative and fun. We are also very chuffed with our terrariums which have pride of place by the window (come on sun!) - a great experience.

We did this as a virtual family get together and it was absolutely fantastic. A really relaxed and also informative session with Hayley and now we all have beautiful Terrariums to show off around our houses. Definitely one to recommend!

I had a brilliant time during this workshop. Hayley was a great teacher and I was thoroughly engaged for the whole time and the end result was fabulous! I have recommended to lots of people and look forward to joining another workshop run by Hayley soon.

I absolutely loved this class. Hayley created a really friendly and welcoming atmosphere, and put us all at ease so we all felt really comfortable chatting and asking questions. I really enjoyed making my terrarium, it was really therapeutic and I was very happy with the finished product. It was just what I needed, a little break from the sameness of this lockdown. I feel happy and uplifted every time I look at my terrarium. Thank you Hayley!

I bought this class as a virtual experience as a Christmas present for my whole family. We all absolutely loved it - Hayley was so helpful and efficient at getting all the equipment to us, and the kits were such good quality and had everything we needed. The class itself was really fun, and the terrariums we made are gorgeous - much better looking than our expectations! Thank you so much!

This was a great little workshop. Very well organised, all the plants and materials arrived a couple of days before the webinar. Very efficient and well thought though. Hayley even sent me a replacement plant as one succulent didn't enjoy the care of Royal Mail as much as the others. Would definitely recommend!

The class was great! All of our materials arrived thoughtly packaged with a lovely bag to keep the equipment in afterwards. Taking the class online worked out really well for us on a wet evening in winter. Our teacher was friendly and encouraging, and we learnt a lot more about terrariums and how to look after our creations. Thank you, so much!

Such an uplifting thing to do post-more restrictions! Hayley was a great teacher and it was really interesting to hear more about Kokedama as well as the other workshops she runs, and her background. The space itself is a great find and was very safe and clean. Everyone wore face masks so it felt perfectly safe. I'd never done anything like that before so felt quite proud taking my three new plants home! I'd highly recommend people to try this workshop out.

This was such a fun workshop! A great introduction to the Japanese art of Kokedama. The class size was small enough for our fab instructor, Hayley, to be able to give one to one guidance and everyone came away with 3 plants. Everything was very clean and covid-friendly, with social distancing, individual equipment and plenty of hand sanitiser. Cupcakes and prosecco was a nice touch too!

We really enjoyed getting our hands dirty at Hayley's kokedama class. A relaxed venue, friendly folks and high quality end products to take home - we heartily recommend.

Kokedama Girl's terrarium making class was amazing. We'd had to push back a few times due to coronavirus, but she was very accommodating. When we arrived, we were greeted with prosecco and delicious cupcakes and then the class started. We were lucky that it was just the two of us, so we had her full attention. She was great at explaining the best ways to make a cool terrarium and had some interesting facts about them too. There were loads of different plants and materials to make it just how you wanted. The two hours shot by and we were really pleased with what we ended up with. We were given some bags to take them home in, but be careful with shaking/jolting when walking home! Thanks for a wonderful evening :)

Lovely studio space (with a superb jewellery shop at the front!) . Hayley is charming and knowledgeable. You actually get to make three kokedama while sipping sake or Prosecco and eating Japanese nibbles. Great fun!

Hayley was a wonderful host and teacher for the Japanese hanging garden class! I had such a fun time and love my plants I took home with me to create a peaceful oasis in my little studio flat of a home. The event was held in a beautiful space which really complimented the class being taught. I highly recommend spending the afternoon or evening enjoying one of Hayley’s lovely workshops.

This was the most amazing and creative workshop I have ever been. Being a plant and nature lover this workshop could have never been better than it was. A lot of creativity and good vibes going in the room and Hayley was super friendly and making sure we were all enjoying and making the most of the experience. Hanging gardens, could not believe I made one of my own and thanks to Hayley and this amazing workshop opportunity. If you love plants and nature, I would highly recommend. So much fun and bliss!

I had a great time making kokedama. Hayley, the host was great fun and entertaining- she helped us all learn quickly and gave us confidence - like anything was possible!! Since the class I have made some more as they make great trendy and unusual gifts. I feel like an expert!!!!! It was a great night out doing something creative and having some fun (and a little drink) in a lovely venue. Will definitely do more classes with Hayley.

I LOVE indoor plants and creating an urban garden indoors so this class was perfect for me! I am obsessed with my hanging bundle of joy and I am desperate to make more! Hayley was a great teacher who was incredibly informative and made the class really fun, can't wait to do another class of hers soon!

Hayley was an amazing teacher, not only was she informative but made the class really fun. I took her class by myself and met some really lovely people and learned a new skill. The space was absolutely beautiful and decorated specially for her particular class which made it feel really different and also made me excited to take other classes of hers in the same space!

This class was so much fun and I'm crazy about my plant! Hayley is an absolute pleasure to be around and it felt so good to get my hands dirty and working with nature (in the comfort of being indoors ;) ) this class is not to be missed. I already want to come back.
