label $65 - $75 (or 4 payments of $16 - $19 Afterpay)
($65 for Class only, no box, $75 for Class and box)


This is a ClassBento virtual Live/Box class! From the comfort of your home, share an artisan experience with your friends, family or colleagues, or enjoy with like-minded others. Our Live/Box classes have been featured on The Guardian, TimeOut, Broadsheet, Concrete Playground, Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, Vogue, and more. Here's how it works:

  1. Book or Request your preferred time
  2. We'll deliver a ClassBento Box to you - this is a physical DIY craft kit containing the materials you'll need. Shipping is free, and you'll get your box delivered in time for your class. This particular craft kit only ships to NSW.
  3. Enjoy the online class. After booking, you'll receive a link to a Zoom meeting. At the time of the class, use that link to join. During the class, you can easily ask questions and get immediate responses. Zoom is free and easy to use, on any device. You're in control of your privacy - you can mute yourself and hide your webcam if and when you prefer.

Make your own DIY terrarium in this live streaming class.

You will learn what kinds of plants to use in a terrarium setting, which plants are compatible with each other as well as how to create a working drainage system. You will learn how to care for your plants too.

You will also be guided by Pamela to help you make the most of your plant arrangement and decorate with a variety of plants, stones, pebbles, and figures. Express your creativity and let your imagination run wild. Bring the outside in!

Please note we are unable to ship plants and organic matter to addresses outside of NSW because of bio hazard laws. If you are outside NSW, we can ship all the other (non-organic) materials to you (listed below), and you can bring your own plant separately - just make sure to select the right option in the checkout.

This class is perfect for beginners and plant killers.
 
What you'll get in your craft kit
  • Soil (NSW only)
  • Spagnam moss (NSW only)

I have had the best life ever, following my passions. I have worked as a script editor and writer and been a course leader and senior lecturer in the UK in film and TV and before that I was an illustrator and artist.

For the last 5 years have become increasingly interested in informal learning. I run classes around Sydney in different venues and concentrate on my passion of growing succulents, art and the art of teaching. I go by the name classbunny.

Thanks Pamela! We had a great time making the terrariums and learning about the process and the plants. It was a really nice way to take a break from work and build something non-technical together.

Great class. Really enjoyed learning a new skill. Keen to put my new skills into action

Cathy Vincent May 2020


I enjoyed the class, but now have to decide what to do with the extra plants my daughter bought. It was easy to follow and we could ask questions if needed.
I will add the photos - I could only load one as when I placed the second one in the box, first disappeared.
Thank you

Pam was an excellent instructor and all our participants (predominantly male) were engaged and had a great time in this workshop!

Pam came to our offsite venue with all the materials, and we didn't have to prepare anything. I was happy to be able to arrange something very different for our team to do together.

The team had a great relaxing morning, Pamela offered handy tips to those of us that are not deemed "green fingers" and was very clear on instructions. The plants she offered the group were very healthy and there was plenty of extra's to decorate with. This is a great event to build team spirit. Thank you Pamela.

The team had a great time building these terrariums! It was one of their favorite activities of the day.

Dannielle Murphy Sep 2018


We had the terrarium class at our office as part of a week of festivities put on for our staff (40 guests) to attend to outside of the norms of working. It was extremely popular and turned out to be a fabulous class. Pamela did an amazing job as the teacher from set up to finish. She was clear and easy to understand and made the class very enjoyable for everyone.
