Calling all indoor plant collectors, beginners to budding botanists. Join us for an experience where the botanical meets modern art!

Kubist Design finds fun and magic in combining air plants (tillandsia) with a selection of hand built, modern clay hanging planters for your little green pals.

Tillandsia are an exciting and diverse group of aerophyte plants in the Bromeliacae family. Many species are sculptural beauties in their own right. They are usually well suited to indoor locations, requiring indirect sunlight and just a spritz or bathe 1-2 times per week depending on the species.

Gina was super lovely, patient and friendly! She even did a private class for us, because Tess' box didn't arrive in time. We had a wonderful afternoon learning about air plants, sharing stories and making polymer clay planters. I was also really impressed with how many little extra goodies/decorations Gina popped in the box for us - made it all the more unique and special! Thanks Gina!
