Demijohn Terrarium Workshop

With London Terrariums

Terrarium workshop arrangement yellow

Join London Terrariums for a magical evening learning to make your own Demijohn 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!

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 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.
