Haylee now focuses almost solely on plants and plant workshops and runs some other creative events from time to time

Haylee was very lovely. Was a fun and informative class and everyone in the class made a great looking terrarium

Yandi Choong Jul 2021

Hayley was very knowledgeable about terrarium and plants. Her class was easy to follow while still allowed for each individual's freedom of expression. The workshop location was a bit difficult to locate without proper instructions.

Yan Choong Jul 2021

Had a fantastic afternoon making my terrarium. Hallie was knowledgeable and provided ideas and tips for building our terrariums and keeping the plants healthy. Highly recommend!

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
Thank you

Dominique Khan Mar 2020

Was a fun class, with great information on back ground of Terrariums and how to make them. My daughter and I had alot of laughs and came out with AMAZING Terrarium's to show off. Would recommend and do again.

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.

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).

I gave the terrarium kit to my granddaughter for her birthday and she made a beautiful terrarium for her bedroom. It looks lovely.

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 !
