Learn how to make a Merchant & Green DIY closed forest-inspired greenhouse terrarium (yours to keep), in this fun and easy workshop.

First, you'll expertly fill your vintage style glass jar with layers of river stones, moss and soil, which will serve as the foundation of your healthy enclosed ecosystem. You'll then choose your own lush and leafy forest-style plants, to accompany mini boulders and pebbles to form your very own wild landscape.

The pace is relaxed, and you'll get just enough feedback to keep you on track, while having enough space to explore and experiment. You'll get easy-to-follow demonstrations, and you'll be provided with all the premium materials you need to make an impressive terrarium.

This terrarium will take minimal effort to maintain, and will keep you smiling for years to come. Yours to take home at the end of the class, herbal tea, Merchant and Green care card and carry bag are included in the price.

Chris is a terrific teacher and host. He explains everything step by step. The finished product is a lovely unique terrarium - beautiful and ready to place in the home. We learnt lots about creating and also caring for a terrarium.
Great venue. Highly recommended.

This greenhouse terrarium class was a fantastic experience for our girls day out. Chris was extremely accommodating when we needed to change our booking and he created a really relaxing atmosphere for the class. I could feel my stress melting away as I dug my fingers into the moss. I really enjoyed learning about the plants and the little ecosystem they create and it was really interesting to see how different our terrariums looked by using slightly different materials and soil levels to decorate. Great fun and creative experience

Lovely teachers, really personable. Attention to detail. Knowledgeable, attentive and helpful but not intrusive. A peaceful, artistic afternoon in a gorgeous setting.

Yvette Wyborn • Feb 2019

Chris was a wonderful teacher, we learnt a lot about plant care and how to take the skills we pulled together today on to future projects. The space was beautiful, the lesson was brilliant, the materials provided were wonderful, and it was great value for money. Literally the best afternoon I've had in recent memory.

Mala Mahesh • Sep 2018

The workshop was a great way to get into terranium making. Chris is a wonderful teacher, very patient and clear in his instructions, the plants and instruments were neatly set up and every thing was so detailed and well thought of. It was a very calming beautiful experience in a lovely location and the reward of taking your very own terranium is amazing.

This is such a relaxed but well structured and well run class. Chris is delightful, and we are both so proud of our creations. Everything you need to create a gorgeous terrarium is provided, and you're given the know-how to create your own in the future. Merchant and Green is a really innovative space for providing classes, and we will definitely be back.

Sheridan Obrien • Aug 2018

This class was very intimate. I didnt need to compete for my teachers attention or wait for others to catch up, since it was a small group.
I really enjoyed making my terrarium and learning the layers that are required for its growth.
