Create your own Desert Scape cacti terrarium in our new advanced terrarium class. Learn how to create and maintain a terrarium reminiscent of the Australian outback or American cowboy country.

Join Charlene from Fleurieu Gifts and Botanista (South Australia’s only dedicated terrarium store) in this all new, two hour workshop where balance and patience is key.

This workshop includes all materials, including a wide top, cylinder-style terrarium; coloured sands and gravels to create banding; soils and substrates; cacti and succulents; as well as wood / stone hardscapes and a crystal.

You will learn how to build your own desert scape from the ground up. Charlene will demonstrate how to create layers in your terrariums from sand and gravel, while still ensuring plants have a good planting medium base – we want our terrariums to last. Very importantly you will learn how to handle and place cacti without ending up with a handfull of spikes! Lastly you will learn how to achieve balance between hardscapes – rocks and wood – and your plants, to create an inviting desert landscape, which will be the envy of any coffee table.

Once your masterpiece is finished, choose a crystal to add that little something extra that makes your terrarium unique and beautiful.

What you need to bring:

Yourself! All materials are supplied for this workshop – you will leave with your own beautiful terrarium and the knowledge of how to recreate it.

This workshop is capped at 6 participants to ensure plenty of time and attention for each person attending.
