Learn how to make a terrarium in Fitzroy



1.5 hours Class size 1 to 20 (public classes), 12 to 40

label $70 - $80 ($80 per guest when you book for 1 guest, $70 for 2+ guests)


Create a lush miniature jungle in one of our longest-running and popular workshops. Terrariums have been enchanting us since 1842; they’re a way to bring the outside in and are conveniently low-maintenance. A self-regulating tiny garden full of natural wonders – what’s not to love? The best bit? They’re a total breeze to care for!

You’ll learn how to design and landscape, select suitable soil composition and foliage for your vessel and care for your new little ecosystem so it survives and thrives. We’ll teach you how to tame Mother Nature and give you practical tips for keeping your babies lush and happy.

We’ll have a huge range of tropical plants, rocks and fun figurines for you to choose from and provide all materials including a glass vessel for your terrarium!

Hayley was engaging and knowledgeable, and gave out great after care tips. I’m usually a terrarium killer but my terrarium is still very much alive and going strong. Thank you !

Haylee the teacher was confident, knowledgeable and engaging, including every one in the activities. No one was nervous about asking a question, and everyone walked away with a beautiful terrarium and the knowledge of how to do this again.

Tanya McGuckian  •  Mar 2021


The terrarium workshop was a fantastic. The choice of plants and glass vessel were beautiful. I loved learning about its origin and the simplicity of the method. Haylee was encouraging and so knowledgeable that I felt comfortable asking questions.
I left feeling like I knew I could keep these little guys alive.

The teacher was super friendly and patient in explaining the process and made time to answer all questions.
What I would have liked to have included in the class was some more detailed explanation of closed terrariums as well even though we didn’t make them just to understand the differences in care and such. The teacher did a great job of reviewing everyone’s work throughout the class and make corrections where needed. Overall good fun and great experience! Looking forward to use what I’ve learnt to make gifts for family and friends over the coming months for various occasions.

Helena is very approachable and friendly instructor, which allows other participants to ask questions and be curious! She have provided important informations about how the terrarium works and what doesn't work well, and she is more than happy to answers if you have any questions. I look forward to purchasing more herbs to create few terrariums. Thanks Helena for running an amazing Zoom class! Enjoyed the lesson.

Catherine Hungerford  •  Jun 2020


A really interesting class and so much fun to design our own terrariums! Keep in mind, it’s quite chilly in the studio so pack a jumper :-)

Katie Bryan  •  Jun 2020


The teacher was fantastic. Shared lots of useful information and was super friendly. The class was great value for money. I thought we would make a tiny terrarium but it was a great size. The venue was good. But I would be nervous to go if it is a cold day as I imagine it would be cold. I definitely want to do another class.

So much fun. The teacher was very well informed and made the workshop a lot of fun. I love that I come out with a product as well as knowledge in how to make a terrarium outside of the class too.

Jarryd Rigby  •  Mar 2020


Hayley was great. Very informative and patient. She took the time to see each participant and give individualised feedback to them all. The materials were top quality, and there was more than enough to choose from.

The perfect introduction to terrariums for a not-so-green thumb. The class was the perfect length and was paced really well for people to navigate and execute the instructions given

I surprised my girlfriend for Valentines Day and thought Tipsy Terrarium would be a different yet experimental class to attend. The process was enthralling and we were given a deep insight into how these little plants function. The teacher was insightful, knowledgeable and made the whole class interactive plus we had beers by our side throughout the 2 hour class so who is going to argue with that!
Highly recommend this class!

The teacher was fantastic,
I've never been one to enjoy activities like this
and it was a surprise that my partner had planned for Valentines day.

By the end I was thoroughly happy with the experience and would recommend to friends and family.

Kitty Robertson  •  Feb 2020


The perfect intro class to terrarium making. Teacher was super knowledgeable and explained things so they were easy to understand. All the info about the history of terrariums, why we make them that way and how to care for them, even where to put them in your home. There were heaps of different plants and decorations to choose from and my terrarium looked great. Would highly recommend as a solo activity, with a partner or with friends!

We really enjoyed our workshop with Haylee today. She explained the history of terrariums before leading us through the workshop. We were provided with all the required materials to produce some awesome terrariums. Haylee allowed us to take our time and provided us with helpful feedback throughout the session. She was also more than willing to answer other questions about caring for plants in general. Thanks Haylee.

Great friendly teacher, clear instructions, great supplies. Only suggestion to get rid of plastic/rubber decorations (like bugs and crystals) and provide natural material decorations instead (glass, stone) etc.

Adeela Razak  •  Dec 2019
