Great vibe and really nice instructor - learnt a lot during the workshop and took home a really nice terrarium!

This was a really great starter workshop. My partner and I attended wanting to to do this as a little date activity, and around 20 people in total were in attendance. The distancing was good between groups, and everyone wore masks when they weren't having a sip from their drink.

The workshop space itself is on the roof of an older industrial building. It would likely still be quite muggy even during Autumn and Spring. It's really hot, so I would recommend wearing shorts and a T.

The instructors were super friendly, approachable and helpful for all our needs. Chris the instructor, when everyone else was out of the room, sneaked over and took some plants we wanted from other groups tables ;) hehehe

Left with 2 beautiful designs, a bit of knowledge, and a nice time away from home during this s****y time. Interested in their succulent workshop too! Might hit that up in winter maybe!

What a great time my husband and I had. The teachers Nat/Ness were helpful and attentive. The materials provided were of good quality and the plants were all healthy and lush. The atmosphere was safe, warm and friendly. We highly recommend this experience and would love to make another terrarium in the future.

This was a very interesting and enjoyable workshop. The group size was good and the two coordinators spent time with everyone so help could be given and questions answered without problem. The girls knew their subject and were confident in delivery. The materials were all supplied and we were given variety in our choices. I will be looking at further workshops with the Plant Doctor!

Nicole Egan Mar 2021

The teacher and their assistant were great. All products needed were readily available and the knowledge and help with wonderful. I look forward to watching my terrarium grow.

This class was such a fun night out with friends! Nat was so knowledgeable and the whole class was really well-paced. We were able to fully customise the terrarium with our choice of plants, rocks, sticks, shells and other goodies, but Nat was still happy to help out where needed. The steps were made really clear about what we need to do to keep these little ecosystems thriving at home too, so I left feeling confident that I could finally keep some indoor plants happy!

Kelly Zurek Mar 2021

My tropical terrarium I was given turned mouldy.They use bamboo lids instead of glass & in ten days I’ve had2 throw it away.Not a good feeling.Also a better studio would of made the experience a lot more comfortable.The teachers were friendly but needed 2 give better step by step instructions.I felt so uncomfortable because of the heat in the studio that I just had2 cut class short & leave early.A disappointment

Terrarium workshop review by Kelly Zurek

Reply from this teacher:

Hi Kelly
So sorry to hear about your Terrarium. We did test the bamboo lids before we started using them for workshops and a month later they were doing really well so I’m really sorry you didn’t have the same experience. We have recently changed the containers we use, to glass-topped ones, so we would love to invite you back to make another one, or we will happily refund the cost of your workshop. We are also looking into investing in a larger fan for the front room, that day was undoubtedly VERY hot, I’m so sorry the experience wasn’t enjoyable. Ness

I bought this workshop for my boyfriend and his mother as a cute bonding experience. They came back with big smiles and beautiful new terrariums and told me they had a lovely time. The teacher was bubbly and provided great information about terrarium care, and offered lots of variances of decor for customisation. The only downside (no stars off for this at all since it was out of anyone's control) is that the workshop was on the top floor of a building, making it really hot during the workshop on that particular. A suggestion for future workshops is having items all on a more accessible level so that people who have back problems don't have to bend over to get things. 100% a great experience and would recommend!

Reply from this teacher:

Hi Leyen,

Thank you so much for getting in touch with your thoughts and feedback!

We are so glad to hear they had an awesome time!

Your suggestions are much appreciated, and we will be putting materials higher where possible, thank you for pointing that out!

Yes, unfortunately the beautiful Nauti is in an uninsulated warehouse and does get warm when the weather does. It was very unlucky with the day being so hot.

But I am super glad they had a blast, they were both really lovely and made great design choices with their terrariums! Thanks for buying such a lovely gift!
