Learn how to make an open succulent terrarium!




2 - 10



Make a terrarium in a fun and easy workshop held by creative director of ‘Merchant and Green’ Christopher Saban, who has over fifteen years experience as a florist.

What is a terrarium, you may ask? Basically, a terrarium is a small glass container with special soil and petite plants (as well as decorations) within, that thrive in indoor environments. It's a practical way to bring some lush life to our everyday living and working lives, which are increasingly devoid of nature.

Chris will provide you with all the premium materials you need in this workshop, including the vase, river stones, mini succulents, moss and soil to layer with and create the perfect environment for your plants to thrive. Your terrarium would usually be have an RRP of $60, so this class is great value for money. You'll follow Chris's simple step-by-step guide to making your own terrarium garden to gift or decorate your home or office.

Terrariums take almost no effort to maintain if you set them up correctly. Chris will give you all his insider tips, so that even the laziest and/or deadliest plant killers amongst us can easily keep our terrariums thriving for years.

Take away a unique and expertly crafted terrarium, a fond memory, as well as knowledge enabling you to continue your journey and build even more advanced and fancy enclosed gardens.

Regular classes can accommodate a maximum of 8 students; however Christopher Saban can cater for up to 10 students for special events.

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.
