Sciren offers science-based workshops by teaching science 'secretly' while we craft and chat. We want everyone to understand science, sometimes the science needs translating. We use craft and hands-on workshops to help you learn.

As a plant biotechnologist, I've gone through the education system to find I needed better ways to learn. I kept seeing crafty hobbies as distractions to my learning. Until I realised they were the perfect vehicle to my learning. Making jam - learn about plant cell walls and pectin. Making a terrarium - learn about greenhouse food production and climate change... it's so much more fun being immersed in learning this way!

We'll help you understand the world we live in by using our passion and knowledge, while we chat and have fun.

Bianca was a gem. Fun, informative and personable. I really enjoyed learning how to make the Kokedama and plan on making a couple more on my own. That being said, I'd quite like the thought of doing another class.

Fantastic way to spend a couple of hours learning something new. Knowledgeable teacher, inviting atmosphere. Walked away with cute and different looking plants

Lisa Bennier Aug 2021

Bianca came to us and provided all the gear, she was very informative and made the class interesting and fun.
We had 5 x 12 year old girls and 1 x 7 year old for a birthday party activity.
Everyone got to make 2 x Kokedama and learn new things - particularly about plants, soil and sustainability.
All the girls had fun and have all talked about wanting to try and make some more.
I would highly recommend this activity and teacher.

Bianca was great, very knowledgeable and down to earth.
We learnt a lot and had a lot of fun.
Nothing was rushed and all materials were good quality. Highly recommend!

Yuri Kaizaki Jun 2021

Bianca taught me how we can nurture our scientific dispositions, such as resilience, through making kokedamas. She is so knowledgeable and makes her scientific knowledge accessible to people like me who don't have almost no understanding of science. This experience was relaxing and therapeutic, a fantastic way of unwinding.

Bianca was friendly, helpful, and informative. My mum and I had a great time making our kokedamas and learnt so much about plants whilst doing so.
