BYO Vessel Terrarium Workshop

With London Terrariums

Terrarium workshop arrangement pink

Join London Terrariums for a magical evening learning to make your own Terrarium.

You are invited to bring a vessel of your choice and learn how to make your very own Terrarium, whilst learning all about the history and science behind terrariums.

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!

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 and tools are supplied. Please bring a vessel no larger than 20cm x 30cm.

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


Your ticket includes a complimentary drink. The workshops will last approximately 2 hours and are open to Barbican members only.

We are holding three workshops: Friday 5 April 18.00-20.00, Tues 7 May and Friday 24 May 19:00-21:00.
