The class exceeded my expectations! We were warmly welcomed to the florist and our teacher, Chris was really helpful and knowledgable. There were a variety of materials to choose from allowing us to be as uniquely creative as we felt. We received guidance through each step in the process of building our terrariums. It was a relaxing and fun afternoon :)

Chris was patient, informative and friendly. The atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable. All equipment was provided and the quality was excellent. A fun and different way to spend a few hours that will bring many more hours of pleasure to come.

Merchant & Green are an amazing little company. I recently attended one of their workshops and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Mitch was an amazing host! His knowledge of plants and how to create beautiful arrangements is second to none. I would highly recommend visiting the store, the workshops are well worth your money! I know that I will definitely be returning in the near future.

Great class with such a friendly and comfortable atmosphere. I'm a nervous person but I had a lot of fun and despite the unfortunate power failure in the region, it was resolved quickly with romantic candle lights. Though the lights did eventually turn on again. Great people, service, plants and overall I love it. The terrariums turned out better than I expected.

Great energy despite the black-out! The candle lights were a nice addition and make the class extra special :)

Teachers were friendly, casual and very knowledgeable about their work. The class was done in the their beautiful florist store and amidst their flowers and ferns! Materials were all provided, along with a rustic apron to truly get into the spirit of things. A relaxing and creative way to spend time with your partner or bestie. Thanks Merchant and Green!

My husband gave this class to me as a Christmas present and I was delighted with his choice. The teachers were friendly and knowledgeable, kept the class running despite the minor setback of a blackout in the area and were attentive to each of the students. We were shown how to build up our dry terrarium glass bowl with each layer of material, receiving information on the purpose of each and important tips on things to avoid. I left the class with a beautiful succulent terrarium and the knowledge of how to build my own terrarium at home. I learnt that it is possible to propagate new succulents from broken off 'leaves' and am showering TLC on the pieces I took home in the hope that I will be able to use some of them in the next terrarium I make.
The venue was lovely. I enjoyed being surrounded by the beautiful indoor plants and cut flowers. This class is highly recommended.

We had the best time in this class. It’s an intimate space where you’ll have a personalised lesson & experience. Chris was an excellent and generous teacher. The products we used were such a high quality and Merchant & Green topped us up with extras to ensure we loved our bouquets. We will definitely be coming back for different class types, perhaps with a glass of bubbles!

The wildflower arranging workshop was excellent! Such a lovely afternoon with great information & guidance from the teachers while also letting us take our bouquets in our own direction :) We learned to make bouquets 3 different ways using the wildflowers. The workshop is in a gorgeous location in the florist studio, surrounded by wonderful flowers.
The flowers provided were beautiful and we each got to take home a huge bunch that we put together ourselves. I think it was perfect value for money & the class was what I expected & hoped for!

There were only 2 of us so we received individualised attention. It was so much fun and it brought back memories of when I attempted macrame over 35 years ago. The teacher was amazing and attentive. I would highly recommend this class. I am now keen to do some more macrame workshops.
I was so impressed I purchased my pot for my Macrame Plant Hanger as well as some other items from Merchant and Gree.

• Jun 2019


Had such a fun time! Chris is lovely and it was so welcoming arriving and having a cup of tea waiting. The space is really welcoming and lovely and being in the storefront means you also see customers come in and chat about the flowers they’re getting etc. this was wildflowers and the selection was incredible - some I hadn’t seen before were really breathtaking and they look so good on my dining table now, too!

My Mum, daughter and I loved this class. The teacher was very informative and gave very good instruction. The venue was easy to get to and lots of parking in nearby streets. The class was good value for money, we all had 3 Kokedama to take home. I feel that it is something we could now do on our own.
5

The flower shop was really cute. The instructors were really friendly and easy to chat to. They showed us how to arrange the beautiful wildflowers and we made one to take home! It was me and 4 other girls and it was a super cosy afternoon. Would definately recommend
5

I got this workshop as a gift for my hubby who loves gardening and was looking to learn more about kokedama. Chris was our teacher. He was friendly and warm and a good instructor. The tasks were sequenced well, in increasing difficulty and we felt confident with each new task. The materials we used were of great quality and we got to take home the kokedama we created. We had guests over the next day and they were super impressed with our creations!
We really recommend this class!

My daughter bought me this terrarium making workshop for Mothers Day for her and I to do together. We were warmly greeted by Mitch and Chris on arrival and offered a cup of tea.
The workshop takes place in the flowershop front and whilst I initially thought the space was pretty small I soon learnt there was plenty of room. Mitch was a great teacher, he taught us everything we needed to know about how to build the terrarium to how to care for the succulents. Mitch was really engaging and great fun. Both my daughter and I thought this workshop was excellent and the end product was beautiful - we are very happy with out terrariums.

Today, I spent a very pleasant morning learning how to make Kokedama balls under the guidance of Chris (assisted by Orla). Chris, our friendly teacher made us feel welcome. His instructions were clear, he was patient, he provided assistance when needed and he was positive in his encouragement of our efforts. We ended the class having each made 3 respectable Kokedama balls and with enough knowledge to make more on our own. All up it was a fun workshop.

The teacher, Chris very friendly and knowledgeable about all aspects of creating and arranging a Succulent Terrarium. The venue was a lovely little Florist Shop in the heart of Bourke St., Redfern, an easy walk from Central Station. All materials were provided and we were encouraged to choose our own plants to create our own design. Very good value for money. Well structured class with lots of helpful information and tips on how to create our own terrarium at home.

The venue was amazing and we were not short for anything there where plenty of options for plants and things to decorate with. I loved every minute of it!
5

• Mar 2019


This was my first time joining a flower arranging workshop - and I super love it. Just want to say big thanks to Mitch and Chris for such a wonderful experience; they are such great and fun teachers. Besides learning how to arrange the flowers, I was amazed at the fact that there are many different kinds of native wildflowers/plants provided on the day. On top of that, I love that I get to bring my own bouquet arrangement home. I am glad I spent $130 for this particular workshop, it was a really good value for money.
5

Enjoyed this workshop very much. The venue was beautiful and very conducive to working with plants, being surrounded by them and also beautiful flowers. The teacher was knowledgable and had a supportive, easy manner. Everyone in class achieved a great result and I was very happy with the three Kokodamas I bought home. The skills are something that I will be able to use again and again on my own, but we were given some insider hints that made the whole process much easier. It was a relaxed, but productive, way to spend a Saturday morning. A super successful workshop, thank you!

This terrarium making class was a great experience. Teacher was very knowledgable, made the subject matter easy to understand and was also more than happy to answer questions about other plants too.

Located in a quiet and leafy street, this workshop was so much fun and set at a really leisurely pace.

Great location (the florist is beautiful, loads of all day parking and a great cafe next door!), really friendly teachers, small class size.

5

• Jan 2019


Very enjoyable, teacher had a lot of expertise which was kindly shared with us, and great value for money
5

• Jan 2019


What was the teacher like?

The teacher was so kind, engaging, passionate, knowledgeable, and fun. We had such great conversations about all things plant, and he was part of the reason the afternoon was so perfect. He encouraged us and offered professional tips and insight to make our terrariums look amazing.

How was the venue?

Merchant & Green is a cute little florist in Redfern and the perfect place to create your own terrarium. When surrounded by lush plants in such a quaint and cute little shop you really feel warm and in your element when creating your lil world.

If materials were provided, did you like them?

Everything we could have ever needed or wanted was provided. If we needed more soil or features or decorations they were all provided. Even items which weren't obviously needed for decorating were provided and looked for as our teacher tried to help us create the best terrarium we could. Most importantly the little plastic animals were provided which, let's face it, is the best-looking feature in the terrarium.

Was the class good value for money?

Considering you would buy a terrarium that size for about $100, you get to build your own, customize it, and have the knowledge and experience for an extra $50 per person, its very worth it.

What did you do / learn?

We were taught all about terrariums, how they work, why they work, and why they're made the way they are. We are then instructed step by step on how to create it, while being checked and encouraged at each step. Along the way, helpful insight and tips on how to create it as best as possible is given. We were also taught how to look after it at home to make sure it lives as long as possible.

A perfect way to spend a weekend morning.

5 stars, very chilled class which I really enjoyed. The only way it could have been better would be if we were aloud to use a 3rd succulent plant. Kind of looks lonely with just 2 and rocks. Teacher was great!

Mitch is 10/10, super nice.

Venue is 10/10, perfect for the workshop.

I brought my mum to the class and we both had a great time.
5

• Sep 2018


Our instructor Mitch is super friendly and helpful. The venue (a florist!) is cosy for a small and intimate group of 3.

We learnt about how to take care of our terrarium, more importantly letting our creativity run wild to create our very own terrarium. The materials supplied and the tips from Mitch definitely give us enough options to create our very own masterpiece.

10/10, highly recommended. Will Instagram the 100+ pics I took and tell all my friends for sure!
5

• Sep 2018


Helped me out with a last minute booking, they walked me through all the beginner steps and taught me tricks of the trade. A great workshop for anyone with interest in flowers!
5

• 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.

5

Fantastic Private Class. Chris was great. We arrived for our class and Chris gave us some background on him and his business and how he came to be doing these classes, then we got straight into it. Chris explained whys and hows of every step of the process of making our Terrarium's. We both really enjoyed our class and would definitely recommend Chris and his classes.
5

• Aug 2018


As always, Chris was amazing! I had previously attended his terrarium class and loved it so much that I came back for a private class with my family. He was thoughtful and patient throughout the entire class, offering us great pieces of information and advice on how to make a beautiful bouquet. His eye for colour, years of experience and bubbly personality really makes him the best teacher. For the price, you learn so much and get to take home an ENORMOUS bouquet that looks and smells amazing.
5

• Aug 2018


Chris is very engaging and an excellent teacher. So much fun and I love the terrarium I made!
5

• Aug 2018

We all walked away very proud of our kokedamo creations. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a fun hands on experience.
5

• Aug 2018


Chris & Mitch were amazing! I took 7 clients to do a private terrarium class and we all loved it! Great time frame (around an hour) and the fact you can BYO food & drinks makes it such a relaxed and cool group event. Would highly recommend people to go and do a class with Chris & Mitch!

Venue was comfortable, clean and cosy with great products in store and for the class. Getting in there to build and create your own little world with your hands felt wonderful - the choice of animals were the the cherry on top (next time, we're coming for the dinosaurs!) Was a wonderful way to spend time with old friends, make new ones and learn about plant care. Thank you, Mitch for the jams, the tea and the life insight - we'll definitely be back!
5

• Jun 2018


The teachers were fantastic: they were accommodating, funny, informative, and downright cool. Not to mention the actual terrarium class was completely relaxing, engaging, fun, and informative. My friend was late to the class, but they were happy to run it again just for him after our group session, while I waited with a second cup of tea in hand. We didn't get to meet the owner, who also runs classes, but you wouldn't know it from the highly enthusiastic and engaging shop assistants! Highly recommended!
5

• Jun 2018


I came back for a second class, and I'm glad I did! I love how every class is different, from the ingredients of the day (stones, succulents, vases and other decorations), and of course the dynamics with the other students and the teachers. It made it a familiar but fresh experience. And I'm happy to report that despite my previously terrible track record with plant maintenance, I've been able to keep the terrarium from my first class a few months ago healthy, sitting happily on my desk collecting compliments from passersby.
5

• Jun 2018


An hour and 30 mins well spent. Mitch and Orla were a great double act, funny and engaging, time flew and our creations were fantastic. Well worth the money.

This class was brilliant! I was a bit apprehensive about going on my own as it was bought for me as a present, but I needn't have been at all. I had such a good time - it was the perfect outlet to have some chilled out 'me time' as well as getting my creative juices flowing!

The teacher was excellent, really attentive and answered all our newbie questions! The space was very cool and has made my instagram feed look sweet, the materials were really high quality too. Best of all, you get your amazing creation to take home, which has definitely made my apartment look a lot more classy.

5

• Apr 2018


I absolutely loved this class, I bought it as a surprise birthday gift for a friend and I think it's an experience definitely worth trying.
The workshop/store was very relaxing and intimate. We arrived a little late due to difficulty finding parking, however Chris our teacher patiently waited for everyone to arrive. Chris was very open with answering any questions from the class and we did not feel rushed during the whole process.
I've never made a terrarium before, but this beginner class was fun and easy to follow as we were provided with all the tools needed and tea!
Overall, I would recommend trying this out, and by the end of it you get to take home a beautiful creation of your own!
5

I had such an enjoyable morning, learning how to make a terrarium, how to care for it and so many side questions about house plant care and looking after cut flowers. The workshop space was inviting and full of inspiration. Chris was a knowledgable calm and helpful teacher. Great value for money as it's far more than a terrarium workshop.
5

Not only did I learn how to make a terrarium but I also got a lot of additional plant and flower info in this class

Fantastic way to spend a couple of hours on a Saturday. Highly recommend this for small groups/couples/singles that want to do something crafty/Christmassy/therapeutic. Have lunch a few doors down (place on the corner) too. Chris is knowledgeable and has an abundance of materials and insights so your wreath will look incredible, even if you haven't an ounce of talent. Haha. All three of us had a ball and Chris was a gentleman.

Three friends and I attended the terrarium class for my birthday last Saturday morning. The setup was personal and intimate being made feel welcome from walking through the door. Chris and Paloma were very knowledgeable and made the experience fun and interesting. I loved my little terrarium and the experience as a whole. Would definitely recommend it to everyone.

Would definitely recommend this class! Chris was a great teacher and super patient with all our questions :-) The class was held in a really lovely shop in a super convenient location, and you end up with a big, beautiful terrarium. It was a really lovely way to spend a morning
