Great little class. Teacher very friendly and we produced amazingly cute plant bowls. Perfect for keeping or gifting.
Maybe include a tag on a stick with care instructions for gifting.

Better street signage would be preferable. Even a hanging dign on the gate.

Hayley West May 2021

The class was so much fun and Haylee was amazing! Everyone in our group had a great time and created some beautiful terrariums.

Alana Couvreur May 2021

The teacher was fantastic! The venue was a little hard to find but well worth it, and well worth the money - you get to make a terrarium which would be honestly quite expensive bought in-store, and the "tipsy" part of the program wasn't just one measly glass of champagne. Alcohol selection was great and bountiful. A huge bonus is also learning about plant care generally on top of terrarium creation!

Heather Wearne May 2021

What a great class! All materials provided by the friendly and knowledgeable teacher. I love my new terrarium and would recommend this to others. The venue behind the main building was unclear.

Mary Butler May 2021

This was such a fun workshop! The steps were clear and simple, I learned heaps, the group size was perfect, there were lots of laughs and I LOVE my terrarium

Katie Ardipradja Apr 2022

The teacher was great, and willing to answer questions about the class, and also seemed very knowledgeable on the topic. The plants supplied were very hardy and look really great. I felt like the teacher didn't really interact with all the participants in the class effectively. I get that it is hard to do online classes and be engaging with all participants, sometimes more shy people slip through the cracks. My internet connection dropped out partway through the class so I may have missed out on some instruction.

Erin Hahn Mar 2022

Virtual networking can be such a drag but this class turned it all around. The teacher brought levity, knowledge and creativity to facilitate team bonding. Plus I now have a lovely terrarium to look at every day!

Wonderful communication from the teacher (as I had a few questions about my kit!), everything arrived well packed and very quickly! It was a really easy to follow along session with the opportunity to ask the teacher any plant related questions. Maybe didn’t need to be done via a live zoom session (a card with instructions would have done fine too), but it was still great to have that live coaching if needed (particularly while in lockdown) ! Happy with my creation

Unable to join the class as it was not delivered on time

Reply from this teacher:

Hello Adam, thanks for letting us know, this is not good.

I've reached out to you via email to find out more + arrange for a replacement kit if necessary.

I will also forward a recording of a class for you to follow along with once your original kit (or replacement kit, or both!) arrives.

Look forward to sorting this out for you asap, sorry for the hassle!

Really enjoyable class. Renea took us through not only how to make our terrariums, but also how to keep them alive and flourishing for years to come.
Fun class to have as a group. The variety of plants were amazing, and the size of the terrarium is great. Thank you

Great afternoon with Renae. Our terrariums looked fantastic, the team really enjoyed the afternoon. From start to finish, very professional. Really liked that we all had some different plants.

Thank you from Amanda & BCG

Sandra Chan-Clayton Sep 2021

So much fun in a relatively short period of time! I felt a bit stressed coming into the session trying to juggle workload beforehand but by the end of the class, I felt relaxed and revived :)
Class was very well organised from the delivery of the items, to the actual session. Was great to see the variety of plants that everyone had, and the wonderful results. Thank you!

Claudia Khannah Sep 2021

our host was super knowledgable and I love the way the plants were sent to our house :)

I can only recommend taking a class with Bel, The Plant Whisperer. She was very knowledgeable and helpful. She started off with the background history of terrariums, explained how to build one and gave really good tips in between. She generously offered to advise on any plant questions and enabled me to learnt a lot about caring better for my green housemates.
The random group was very nice too with all level of plant lovers: novice to plant experts. Everyone was sharing in with showing their plants, asking questions, sharing experiences and giving advice. I loved how interactive the class was.
The 1.5hrs was sufficient time to get our terrariums done and Bel gave a lot of ideas for other types of terrariums.
I had a really good time and already booked the Kokedama class with the Plant Whisperer team. Looking forward to meet Bel again and a new group of plant lovers.

Lisa Gregory Sep 2021

Fantastic experience. Fun, educational and we love the Terrarium we made. Thanks Bel and team.

Lauren Buckley Sep 2021

Was a nice and informative class. Was a different way to spend the weekend and mix it up during lockdown.

Came with three plants and everything you need for the terrarium.

Our bowl came broken but they were good at helping us figure out a solution so that we were able to join in.

Our company (employees in MEL, SYD and ADL) signed up to do a Terrarium making class during lockdown and it was a very enjoyable experience! We were all very excited for this class and to get hands on with making terrariums for the first time! It was also a great opportunity to get the team together during trying times. Haylee was so knowledgeable about all things plants! She was very sweet and patient with the team- we had a lot of questions! The class was delight and lifted our spirits!

“Most beautiful thing ive ever made, It’s just so lovely we have these events and I can use my new skills with zoom to access them. I am so thankful its must so exiting real achievement. “

Hi to the Events team,
A very big thank you for organising today’s terrarium event.

It was the best few hours I’ve had for a few weeks.
Life has been challenging as a Carer & then a hospital stay for myself.
I feel brighter this morning participating in this fun event.
Hayley was excellent & it was lovely having interaction from other carers.

Sadly my glass bowl arrived with a break in the side of it , plus broken plant.

I enjoyed learning from Hayley today & if it is possible I would love to participate in the
plant ball session , if that is ok.

I loved seeing what the other ladies had made with their terrariums & I have lots of ideas to follow up on.
Like visiting an op shop to source vessels & to involve my grandson in helping to create terrariums for gift making, when we are able to leave the house post Covid

Kind thanks for the bright spot of my last few weeks.

Sent this for a friend's iso-birthday and she had a wonderful time creating her terrarium! It lives comfortably in her lounge room, and she's proud to show it off every time someone new comes over.
It's been great to watch its progress over time.

A great activity, very clear instructions (and care instructions too) and as a complete beginner I was able to achieve success very quickly. I am inspired to keep building now that I know how. I also have a home worthy of the figures I had (forest spirits from two different movies).

My ten year old daughter created this with me assisting with the instruction sheet. She loved it and the terrarium looks amazing. The plants are just beautiful and she is very proud of her creation that is sitting on her desk. As a visual learner it would be great to have a video to watch along with the instructions but they were very clear for me to help her. Highly recommended and love the decorations included also. Thank you !

It was a great experience. The instructor was very helpful and moved at pace with the group, answering lots of plant-related questions.

Lee Chai Jun 2022

When I opened the box just before class started, I was impressed with how the plants were packaged to protect them. Alas, when I opened the small box with the packing ‘noodles’ and the pebbles and soil, I found my bowl was broken into a thousand pieces☹️ Lucky I had a glass bowl that I don’t use in the kitchen any more and I am able to enjoy the class. Perhaps a follow up with some instruction notes would be good. Thank you.

Loved it! I made an awesome terrarium, and the succulents look good too. Great experience, I was able to ask loads of plant related questions and seek answers to my lack of a green thumb (need to work on that).
Thanks for the accidental personalised class, as I was the only attendee. Made it even more special.
