Your host, Work-Shop is COVID-19 aware

This means that this teacher won't run a class if they've had flu symptoms in the last 14 days, and will adhere to relevant state restrictions (e.g. on maximum number of students per class)

Create a lush miniature jungle in one of our longest-running and popular workshops. Terrariums have been enchanting us since 1842; they’re a way to bring the outside in and are conveniently low-maintenance. A self-regulating tiny garden full of natural wonders – what’s not to love? The best bit? They’re a total breeze to care for!

You’ll learn how to design and landscape, select suitable soil composition and foliage for your vessel and care for your new little ecosystem so it survives and thrives. We’ll teach you how to tame Mother Nature and give you practical tips for keeping your babies lush and happy. We’ll have a huge range of succulent plants, rocks and fun figurines for you to choose from and provide all materials including a glass vessel for your terrarium!

Bring a friend and get $10 off the full price ticket! Select two or more tickets at checkout to nab our ‘bring a friend’ deal

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get
  • Medium sized terrarium vase
  • Succulents and other terrarium friendly plants
  • Sand, pebbles, rocks and moss
  • Fun ‘extras’ to add to make the terrariums unique
  • Tools
  • The Work-Shop non-patented layering system for keeping shit alive…

Each person will leave with one of their very own awesome terrariums and the skills to make them again!

What to bring

  • Prepared to get your hands dirty!

  • Any specific decorations you’d like to add

Our instructor was a super hilarious guy who has an eye for ~terrarium aesthetic~. Covered enough theory to understand why you're adding all the layers and how to keep your plant babies alive but we were able to get our hands dirty soon enough. Everyone got a good range of plants (spikey, not spikey), rocks, decorations. Would definitely recommend.

Le Nguyen • Oct 2020


The terrarium class was fun and easy! Chet was great at explaining all the layers and gave some insight into the history of terrariums. He offered heaps of colours and decorations to personalise our terrariums so it was fun to play around and experiment with lots of different looks.

Such a fun class! Chet taught us how to design and landscape our terrariums, as well as how to take care of them afterwards. Lots of different plants, rocks and figurines to use and make a totally unique little terrarium. Great vibe - loved it - thanks Chet!

Chet (sorry if that's wrong!) was a great teacher and an expert on terrariums. The class was super fun, the materials provided were of high quality. Workshop is a funky venue and I'm very keen to try more classes there!

Teacher(Chet) was amazing, class was very easy to follow Loved it, would definitely recommend to others

Javiera Valdes • Jul 2020


really fast and easy workshop, all the materials and knowledge were there ready to go.

Melanie Young • Jun 2020


This was a great class and priced really well given you can buy a pre-made terrarium for the same price. Teacher was great - really friendly, explained things well and was happy to come around and answer any questions we had. I loved that they have little trinkets and toys you can include in your terrarium (I went with an African safari theme with some cute plastic animals).

Workshop has moved to a new venue in Redfern and it's really great (it's also much much warmer than the last place which is great as we did the class during winter). The teacher was happy for us to stay around until we'd finished the terrarium (so even though the class is 1 hour it's really not - we were there for quite awhile).

Fun way to celebrate a birthday! Chester is a superb teacher approachable, obliging and patient. Brilliant that all the materials are included and we each have something beautiful to remind us of a memorable day

Jackie Ashby • Jun 2020


Class was really well set up, all the steps explained clearly. The teacher was informative and good humoured. Lots of 1 on 1 time where needed.

We super loved this class. It was focussed and practical. I took my 12yo and now she wants to make terrarium presents for the rest of the family. Our new dinosaur gardens are ♥️♥️ features of on the dining room table.
