Experience a taste of the garden and connect with nature to make your very own ecosystem in a jar in our brand-new Terrarium Workshop.

You will join our workshop leader Lucy to learn about these incredible self-sustaining ecosystems, layering coconut coir, moss, charcoal and foliage in a jar measuring 25cmx19cm.

Terrariums make lovely handmade gifts and are a great statement piece for the home to brighten up any room.

We provide all the materials you need and light refreshments. The perfect gift for someone you love, or a fun and creative day out for yourself.
