Private Terrarium Workshop for Two

Perfect for special occasions and celebrations








Treat yourself and a special someone to a private workshop (no other students will be there).

Great for an anniversary, birthday, or just because. Perfect for a couple, or for a parent and child. And if you're making last-minute plans, no worries, the team will respond quickly and we can keep a secret ;).

Be invited into the Merchant and Green floristry, where the walls are adorned with flowers and plants, and be transported into a serene world, where you can happily lose yourself in the wonderful world of nature.

You'll each get to make a large succulent terrarium, which are mini garden landscapes that live in glass enclosures. Terrariums are easy to maintain, and perfect for modern living.

You'll get easy step by step instructions, as well as all the ingredients you'll need. You'll get just enough one on one feedback from the teacher, while also having lots of freedom to express your creativity, as you build, shape and customise your unique creations, just the way that you like.

My daughter and I spent a wonderful morning with Mitch creating our terrariums. He is very knowledgeable and engaging. We were offered a wide variety of stones and plants. We learnt a lot and ended up with 2 fabulous terrariums.

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.

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.

We learnt so much that now we have another new hobby. What a great way to spend a Saturday morning and walk away with our own creation. Chris and Mitch made this a lesson in life not just in floral beauty. Thank you both for the experience.

Chris (our teacher) was amazing!

It's great to be taught by someone who has a real passion for these things.

The shop is perfect, the sizing was big enough for us to have our freedom to Walk around whilst also allowing us to connect intimately.
