Embark on a miniature gardening adventure with a remotely guided terrarium-building workshop! Join friends and fellow nature lovers from around the world in crafting your own lush, self-contained ecosystem within a glass enclosure. With an array of vibrant plants, decorative stones, and other natural elements to choose from, the terrarium building workshop is a hands-on, imaginative experience that brings the beauty of nature to your fingertips.
Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to find an interesting, sealable bottle to use for your terrarium. Thrift shops, estate sales, and kringloops are great places to find creative containers such as glass coffee pots, large corked jars, or old apothecary bottles. Just make sure there is plenty of room for a handful of pebbles, a scoop of dirt, and a few plants growing to keep you company all season long.
You will then collect from your local garden store just two or three tiny, terrarium-friendly plants, pebbles for drainage, moss, and other natural elements you may want in your little glass garden. Special stones, sticks, or other elements are a nice touch. You might even want to add tiny fairy home pieces if your container is large enough.
Then, on March 17th at 7 p.m. Central Europan time (World time Buddy can help you convert that time), we will meet via Zoom and I will guide you in the creation and long-term care of your enclosed ecosystem.
Participants will receive a Zoom link after registration.
Here are some nice plants to consider.
