A brilliant and carefully considered workshop. The studio was a lovely place to be, everything was laid out so beautifully and Emma explained everything beautifully too! She was very patient and helpful. The session lasted a bit longer than I was expecting but I really appreciated the extra time. Thank you for a wonderful workshop!

I organised a terrarium workshop for my sister’s hen and the whole process was fantastic from start to finish! Bethany led the workshop and was incredibly knowledgeable. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed doing such a creative, relaxed activity and couldn’t wait to find a new home for their creations. Also, the tables were set up in a way that was both practical and aesthetically pleasing. Not only that, but the booking process itself was so straightforward and Bethany travelled to the venue we were using for the hen which was much appreciated. It was such a highlight of the day and I can’t recommend booking a workshop through London Terrariums enough :)

Workshop FAQs

What happens in a Terrarium Workshop?

  • You will learn about the history and science behind these self-sustaining ecosystems, before watching a quick demonstration where we describe the tools and plants that are on the table, before getting stuck in to make your own terrarium!

Which plants will I be using?

  • We use a variety of small tropical plants such as fittonia, ferns, calathea, ivy and mosses. You'll be able to use different plants based on which vessel you choose, and every terrarium always looks amazing at the end.

Can I bring a friend/partner along for company, or to share making a terrarium together?

  • Of course! We charge a £40 fee for plus ones as space is very limited in our studio and every seat counts. Just add the extra "Bring a Plus One" ticket to your order.

Can I change my vessel on the day?

  • Usually you will be able to change vessels if you wish, but this depends on what we have in stock. We'd recommend booking for your favourite vessel.

I want to bring my own vessel- is this okay?

  • Yes! Simply choose the "BYO Vessel" option, and as long as your vessel is up to 25cm in diameter then you're good to go.

How do I bring the terrarium home?

  • We'll provide you with bags and care guides for safely getting your new terrariums back home, if you'd like to bring your own tote bag that is also very welcome.

Should I arrive early?

  • We recommend arriving 5-10 minutes before the start time of your workshop so we can begin on time.

Do I need to bring a ticket?

  • Your order confirmation email is your ticket, and we'll have your name on our list and will tick you off when you arrive.

I can't attend the workshop I booked! Can I get a refund?

  • We don't offer refunds on our workshop bookings. If you notify us at least one week in advance of the workshop, then we will endeavour to move you onto another date. If you're unable to attend at all, then we can send a terrarium kit to you to make at home. See our T's and C's for more info.
