North Queenslander’s turned city folk, Bella and Keylan are passionate about greenery. Bella was raised in a family where gardening is a way of life. If she wasn’t visiting her grandmother's water lily farm or pottering around her dad's bonsai collection, she was out in the hills of North Queensland discovering new places and photographing moss (yes moss!) Keylan is a man of many talents, if he isn’t tracking down rare plants, he is building furniture and greenery specific fixtures to complement their locally sourced products. Together, Bella and Keylan work and live by Greenery, constantly bringing nature into the urban landscape.

I am really disappointed with the lack of service, I had really been looking forward to doing one of your workshops and had made the arrangements for myself and 5 colleagues to attend as a team building exercise. The day before the workshop my 7 month old son was admitted to hospital and when I asked for our class to be rescheduled, not refunded, the response time was slow and I was told that this didn't comply with the terms and conditions of purchase. I feel that this is really disappointing, I couldn't have known that my son would be seriously ill 3 days before hand and I wasn't asking for a refund. It felt a little uncompassionate for extenuating circumstance. Seeing as my son was being covid tested and in isolation, I would appreciate a refund for my ticket as it is against the law for me to have attended. I would have been satisfied with a rescheduled class, however, this experience has now left a sour taste in my mouth about your organisation. And I would not recommend.

In regards to the actual class, the feedback from my colleagues who could attend was that the delivery was good, the presenter was knowledgeable. However, it was off putting and unprofessional to have her pets be brought to the class, as not everyone is into dogs and some people may even have allergies. We have a colleague with a phobia of dogs, so this would have been a deal breaker for him when he'd paid $80 to attend - something to consider.

And finally, the general consensus is that the price point was too high. I understand there is the cost to rent the space and something for the presenters time, however, the finished product does not reflect the cost or even the example image used for the workshop listing.


Reply from this teacher:

Hi Leith,

We are so sorry to hear about your son falling ill, our thoughts are with the little guy.

As discussed on the phone, because you guys were a group of 6 and you wanted to cancel a few hours before the workshop, it make things difficult for our teachers who pre purchase all the materials for the class. Sadly, in this case we just didn’t have enough notice. Also since the workshop materials for this class are all plant based and therefore perishable, we just couldn’t simply transfer you to the next date and reuse materials.

I'm very sorry we can’t be more flexible on our non refundable cancellation policy, the policy is at the request of our teachers who are otherwise out of pocket if we don’t enforce for them.

We try to make the 3 day cancellation policy as clear as possible before tickets are purchases, and we also include it in the terms and conditions of your booking.

We are so happy that most of your group were still able to join the workshop, and that they were able to take home your workshop materials so you could make a terrarium at home :)

We sincerely hope your son is in better health. Xo

Bella was very passionate about plants and it showed in the way she taught the class

I can with a friend of mine and glad I did.

Teacher didn't respond to my request for a reschedule - on either of the listed comms channels. Then wouldn't refund my money after finally responding on the night of Incredibly poor behaviour. I also tried to provide feedback to CB at the time - but no joy there either. Put me off ever using class Bento again.


Reply from this teacher:

Hi Sue, I’m so sorry you weren’t able to attend the Terrarium class.

Unfortunately, Work-Shop has a 3 day cancellation policy, which means credits/refunds are not offered during this lead up time to your class. The cancellation policy is included in the terms and conditions of your ticket purchase. The policy is at the request of our teachers who otherwise are out of pocket if we didn’t have this in place.

I'm very sorry you didn’t receive a response to your transfer request. I did send this info to you but you must not have received it?

I've emailed you directly as well so please don't hesitate to reach out there if you have any questions.

Wonderful, fun class. The instructor was so knowledgeable in succulents and gave us great background info, as well as an excellent step by step to making our terrariums, and in a way that we can do it again at home. Would definitely recommend!

I really enjoyed the class and learnt alot about Succulents.
The teacher was awesome and very helpful and friendly.
The only downfall about the night would be that there was music playing in the background so myself and my friends did find it hard to hear the teacher at the start of the lesson when she was talking. Once we started making our terrarium the music was fine.

We attended the Succulent Terrarium class at the Work-shop in Newstead. Our teacher was very friendly and knowledgeable. Street parking was not a problem and plenty of room for each person to work. Everything was laid out as we needed it making the whole process very easy. We each went home with lovely succulent bowls with new skills and ideas for Christmas gifts. We are now keen to attend more classes in the future as there are so many options to choose.

Presenter was amazing The atmosphere was lovely and the final product turned out really well.

Meagan Greenway Sep 2020


The teacher was lovely and the venue was excellent.

We had a fantastic time and learnt lots of valuable tools for future terrarium classes.

Being a visual learner I would have loved to watch the master herself crest a terrarium herself to guide some steps.

Overall a great night of creativity :)

Kim McGuire Jan 2020


Terrific class! I walked away with a new little succulent ecosystem of my own design. Everything was provided, and the instruction was clear, well-timed and left enough room for creative flair.

Bella taught us not only how to create a terrarium from scratch, but why each material was used and their benefits over other alternatives. I feel more capable of not only building terrarium myself, but in caring for my little succulent babies and helping them to thrive (and propagate).

Great location, easy parking, delicious restaurant option next door for a late dinner with my new plant babies, after class.

Absolutely fantastic succulent terrarium making class! Bella is amazing and so helpful and just the nicest person. So warm and bubbly.
She provided everything we could need and walked us through it all to make beautiful terraniums! Had the best time!
The space is perfect for the classes, I was worried it was going to be really hot as it's been super hot latley but there were fans everywhere and was nice and cool.
Cannot wait to do another class!
Thankyou so much
