In this relaxing live online class, you will learn how to make a regular-sized terrarium.

You will learn about soil layering and composition, how to pick the right plants for your environment, and then how to care for your beautiful little garden so that it thrives in the years to come, with minimal maintenance required.

We’ll have an interesting range of tropical plants, rocks and playful figurines for you to choose from in your craft box, as well as of course the glass vase and soil. Pick what you like and personalise your little garden just the way you like it.

Five years ago, Haylee left an unfulfilling corporate job to focus full time on her creative pursuits and her other passion, yoga, and she's happy to say it was the best decision she's ever made. Haylee now focuses almost solely on plants and plant workshops and runs some other creative events from time to time

My mission is to brighten bodies and homes with beautiful, well made and original pieces and luscious jungle plants.

“Most beautiful thing ive ever made, It’s just so lovely we have these events and I can use my new skills with zoom to access them. I am so thankful its must so exiting real achievement. “

Hi to the Events team,
A very big thank you for organising today’s terrarium event.

It was the best few hours I’ve had for a few weeks.
Life has been challenging as a Carer & then a hospital stay for myself.
I feel brighter this morning participating in this fun event.
Hayley was excellent & it was lovely having interaction from other carers.

Sadly my glass bowl arrived with a break in the side of it , plus broken plant.

I enjoyed learning from Hayley today & if it is possible I would love to participate in the
plant ball session , if that is ok.

I loved seeing what the other ladies had made with their terrariums & I have lots of ideas to follow up on.
Like visiting an op shop to source vessels & to involve my grandson in helping to create terrariums for gift making, when we are able to leave the house post Covid

Kind thanks for the bright spot of my last few weeks.

A great activity, very clear instructions (and care instructions too) and as a complete beginner I was able to achieve success very quickly. I am inspired to keep building now that I know how. I also have a home worthy of the figures I had (forest spirits from two different movies).

I gave the terrarium kit to my granddaughter for her birthday and she made a beautiful terrarium for her bedroom. It looks lovely.

My ten year old daughter created this with me assisting with the instruction sheet. She loved it and the terrarium looks amazing. The plants are just beautiful and she is very proud of her creation that is sitting on her desk. As a visual learner it would be great to have a video to watch along with the instructions but they were very clear for me to help her. Highly recommended and love the decorations included also. Thank you !
