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.

Fabulous afternoon experienced by all. Enjoyed every minute. This was a great opportunity to get the sisterhood together. Just what we all needed. Planters look wonderful.

Margaret Petrie • Oct 2020

The class was well organised, though in a relaxed environment. Instructions were clearly communicated and demonstrated.
There were no issues trying to keep up, we could easily work at a comfortable pace.
And Gina is so lovely and friendly, and more than happy to follow up with an emal, info we may want to refer to later.
A great experience

Thanks to our teacher, Gina, for a great clay pot class!
We had a group of five friends away at a hinterland retreat house and we enjoyed our crafty afternoon via zoom.
The instructions and steps were easy to follow and we were encouraged to ask questions along the way.
Great experience for something different!

Gina is a wonderful teacher and her class was so much fun. The kit was beautifully presented and I had a truly wonderful afternoon of learning and fun.

Abbey Hay • Jun 2020

We had the best experience with our teacher. Unfortunately due to COVID our Bento box was a little delayed in arriving to Tasmania. But our teacher was so accommodating in rescheduling until the box arrived. This was a Mother’s Day gift for my Nan. She has the best time creating the hanging planters. With a teacher who was very kind and patient teaching an old girl new tricks. Thanks so much for a fantastic class

Frances Robinson • May 2020

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!
