Tipsy Terrarium Workshop: Make and Sip



The teacher was fantastic! The venue was a little hard to find but well worth it, and well worth the money - you get to make a terrarium which would be honestly quite expensive bought in-store, and the "tipsy" part of the program wasn't just one measly glass of champagne. Alcohol selection was great and bountiful. A huge bonus is also learning about plant care generally on top of terrarium creation!

We did not get to experience this activity I purchased for my best friends birthday as Haylee cancelled super last minute. This was extremely disappointing as 10 people had already gathered from around Melbourne/Vic to attend. Haylee was extremely rude over text. She was told the suburb beforehand when the booking occurred and due to her own lack of organisation she went to the wrong address. after having made her mistake she was inflexible even though the 10 of us were willing to wait. She tried to blame this on the attendee who organised the night  + more

Beginners Terrarium Workshop



Teacher was really nice, enthusiastic and fun. My partner and I had a great time, learnt about terrariums and it was nice to out and about again. I definitely think that I'll be doing more workshops with The Plant Whisperer in the future!

A really interesting class and so much fun to design our own terrariums! Keep in mind, it’s quite chilly in the studio so pack a jumper :-)

Beginners Terrarium Workshop



The teacher was fantastic. Shared lots of useful information and was super friendly. The class was great value for money. I thought we would make a tiny terrarium but it was a great size. The venue was good. But I would be nervous to go if it is a cold day as I imagine it would be cold. I definitely want to do another class.

So much fun. The teacher was very well informed and made the workshop a lot of fun. I love that I come out with a product as well as knowledge in how to make a terrarium outside of the class too.

Haylee was a fantastic Plant Whisperer! She was knowledgeable, bubbly and organised. My friends and I had a blast creating our terrariums and learning about how to care for them along the way. There was a great range of plants, stones and figurines for us to personalise our own terrariums.

Beginners Terrarium Workshop



I surprised my girlfriend for Valentines Day and thought Tipsy Terrarium would be a different yet experimental class to attend. The process was enthralling and we were given a deep insight into how these little plants function. The teacher was insightful, knowledgeable and made the whole class interactive plus we had beers by our side throughout the 2 hour class so who is going to argue with that! Highly  + more

The perfect intro class to terrarium making. Teacher was super knowledgeable and explained things so they were easy to understand. All the info about the history of terrariums, why we make them that way and how to care for them, even where to put them in your home. There were heaps of different plants and decorations to choose from and my terrarium looked great. Would highly recommend as a solo activity,  + more

Great friendly teacher, clear instructions, great supplies. Only suggestion to get rid of plastic/rubber decorations (like bugs and crystals) and provide natural material decorations instead (glass, stone) etc.

Our teacher Hayley was really friendly and presented the Kokedama workshop in an easy to follow way. She made a demonstration then helped everyone individually with their Kokedama and to make them personalised how we wanted them. Hayley was right on time too which was great for us.
