Members’ Terrarium Workshop

with Terrarium London

Terrarium workshop workstation

Join London Terrariums for a magical evening in the Barbican Conservatory learning to make your own Tinyjohn Terrarium.

You will also 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. You will be sent home with a hand screen printed London Terrariums tote bag to pop your terrarium in and also a care guide with our details on if you have any further questions.


We are holding two workshops: Tuesday 5 June and Wednesday 25 July, 19:00-21:00.

The workshops will last approximately 2 hours.
