Tropical Dome Terrarium Workshop

Learn how to make a dome terrarium in Brisbane



1.5 hours Class size 1 to 25     label $80

Join Bella at this dreamy tropical dome terrarium workshop! As the oldest form of terrarium craft, domes are a fantastic way to propagate plants and create unique miniature worlds.

During this workshop, we will show and discuss:

  • How to prepare tropical species for long term growth
  • How to prepare the base structure of the dome
  • Tropical plant arranging and composition to make the most beautiful piece
  • How to assemble the dome for completion

By going through these key topics you will be equipped with ample knowledge to make the most beautiful tropical dome! Learning about specific species, care, propagating and long term care will make your springtime the most productive growing season yet.

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
  • Tropical dome handbook which covers all of the information covered on the day
  • Three tropical species
  •  Decorative rocks and crystals to make your dome the most beautiful it can be!
  •  Glass dome container included!

What to bring
  • A notepad and pen if you wish to take notes
  •  Clothes you don’t mind working with dirt in
  • Wear closed-in shoes

Suitable for

This class is perfect for beginners - no prior experience is needed.

This is a fun indoor activity, suitable for adults, and kids (minimum 9 years old). An adult must accompany any attending kids, and must pay for a separate ticket.

This would also be a nice gift for her or gift for mum.

North Queenslander turned city gal, Bella is passionate about craft and greenery. Bella was raised in a family where gardening is a way of live. 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! ). Bella works and lives by Greenery, constantly bringing nature into the urban landscape.

The class was very easy to follow and we had lots of creative freedom, but still just enough guidance! I’m excited to make another terrarium soon!

The teacher was so kind and lovely, the dome was such good quality and the moss and plants were so lush and gorgeous.

We we were lucky and a few people didn't show up so we were able to swap out our ferns for theirs (so many different kinds) and got some extra little leaves on the side!

I learnt how to make the little moss balls to wrap around the plants that will provide nutrients instead of using soil!

I love my dome so much and it was so much fun to do! I would love to do another class with that teacher, she was wonderful!

A great way to spend a couple of hours with friends, learning a new skill from an enthusiastic and passionate teacher. Now I have my own Tropical Dome Terrarium and the knowledge I need to care for it.
Planning to teach my kids how to make their own this weekend!

Bella gave us a lot of vital information on growing tropical plants specifically ferns in a glass dome. There were plenty of materials to use and I had so much fun during the class. I’ll definitely come back for other classes with her.-maureen
