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!

We’ve teamed up with Australia’s brightest creative minds to share their knowledge and help teach you a new skill. From 3D printing and stencil art through to music and gardening – life skills and personal development through to cooking doughnuts and mushroom foraging, we offer a broad range of fun and creative short courses to suit our time poor lives. We will inspire you to pick up that pen, paintbrush, hammer or sewing machine and flick the switch that will kickstart a whole new way of life.

Community values lie at the heart of our project. We collaborate with local artists and industry experts to teach classes and utilise local suppliers for any materials needed. We also provide a creative environment for emerging artists to produce and sell work, and meet like minded individuals. Work-Shop will be a space for everyone, with a rotating schedule of art shows, information nights on local issues and a whole range of events and community initiatives.

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.

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.
