Modern Craft Workshop | The London Terrarium

Every wondered how these self sustaining ecosystem survive without watering? Wondered how to get the plants in those bottles?
Join the team from London Terrariums, for an evening at the Forge making your own Tinyjohn Terrarium.

You will learn how a terrarium works; how these self-contained ecosystems survive so well on their own and how to look after them.

We will start with a short introduction explaining the history and science that goes into building a terrarium, from the different plants you can use to why activated charcoal has become an essential for us.

Then it is up to you guys to get your hands in there and build your own!

We will supply you with a Tinyjohn Jar which you will fill with various Fittonia and Ivy and an arrangement of pebbles and moss.

Ask us any questions you have and by the end of the session you will have your own exciting miniature garden to take away and watch develop over the next months and years.

All contents, Jar and tools are supplied, we will send you home with a London Terrariums Tote Bag to pop your terrarium in and also a care guide with our details on if you have any further question

London Terrariums began out of a sincere desire to engage with nature in the urban environment. We made our first terrarium using what we could source from our immediate surroundings; stones from our driveways, moss from the garage roof, cuttings from our house plants and hand-made tools from wine corks and garden sticks

You can find the London Terrariums here and here

Drinks & Nibbles will be served
