Terrariums! $40

Everyone has terrarium fever! We’ll teach you how to make tiny desktop gardens from succulents, plants and moss in mason jars. It’s like your own miniature oasis that can travel with you, and it’s easier to care for than your pet rock. Well, almost. Once you know how to make terrariums, you can make larger ones in apothecary jars, large vases or any glass containers. We supply the mason jars, dirt, plants and even little woodland creature cake toppers to inhabit your terrarium. You will learn to make living and moss terrariums and any combination in-between. We’ll discuss succulents, air plants and living and preserved mosses (we will have both). For this class you"ll walk out with one beautiful terrariums and a guide to make them at home and care for them. We promise well have an array of fun jars too (all recycled) and we get awesome succulents flown in from CA fresh, which lets us keep the class affordable. You will also leave with a care guide and are welcome to purchase additional mosses to take home. 


Supplies needed: None. If you would like to bring your own glass jar or vase, feel free! Also, if you would like to make more than one terrarium, bring cash to pay for extra jars and plants. You can bring your own succulents if you have any favorites, as well as you are welcome to bring your own air plants, which we talk about in class but do not include since they are a bit pricey. ALL ACTION FIGURES AND TOPPERS WELCOME (dont even as Kelly about her Star Wars terrariums)
