Succulent Terrarium Workshop 

Learn how to make a DIY open succulent terrarium (yours to keep) in this fun and accessible workshop in Sydney.
 
A terrarium is a small glass container containing tiny plants and unique soil accompanied by decorative elements, in case you didn't know. Terrariums thrive in indoor environments, and they're a practical way to bring some lush life to our everyday lives, which are increasingly devoid of nature. Terrariums take almost no effort to maintain and can easily live for many years if you follow the tips from this class. 
 
We will provide all of the premium ingredients, including a vase, a wide variety of river stones and three cute mini succulents to choose from as well as special moss and soil. You'll get easy-to-follow demonstrations, and the team will give you one-on-one feedback and tips along the way.
 
As this is an interactive and relaxing class, you'll have plenty of time to ask questions, reconnect with nature and get lost in the moment. Run your fingers through the textures of the soil and the stones, and breathe in some glorious earthy scents. Get creative as you select the elements and shape your mini garden landscape, just the way you like it. Will you make a Zen garden? A natural riverside landscape? Or get inspired on the day and create something unexpected!
 
Take away a personalised and expertly crafted terrarium, a Merchant & Green terrarium care card, a fond memory, as well as knowledge and skills enabling you to build more terrariums by yourself. Use your terrarium to beautify your home or office, or make it a hand-made gift for someone special.

Kokedama has been around for centuries. It's a variety of Bonsai, consisting of petite plants living off a ball of special soil and moss, bound by string. You can hang them, feature them in bowls, let them stand 'naked', or do something more creative!
 
Perfect for beginners and people who like to get closer to nature and get their hands dirty and those looking for something different to do. The Merchant & Green team will make it easy for you to follow along, and you'll be amazed by what you create with your own two hands.
 
You will make a set of three Kokedama moss balls, choosing from various succulents or seasonal indoor plants selected by your teacher on the day.
 
At the end of the class, you can take your new moss balls with you to style in your home. They also make an original gift for someone special. A Merchant and Green care card and carry bag is included. They're easy to take care of and will bring a nice touch of greenery into any space.
