Demijohn Terrarium Workshop
13 August 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Come and join Jar and Fern at the Greenhouses to make your own Demijohn Terrarium. These beautiful vintage wine-making bottles make the most beautiful ship-in-a-bottle style terrariums. We will show you all the techniques and give you all the tools to create these from scratch.
We will explain the history of Terrariums, how to care for them and the ideal plants to fill them with. You will be provided with everything you need to create your own ecosystem, we will have a range of plants for you to choose from including Fittonia, Ivy/Fern and Moss as well as a large sealable glass demijohn. We will guide you through creating your own terrarium which will be all yours to take home at the end of the session.
You will leave with a care guide for your terrarium, as well as receiving a digital document which will tell you all you need to know about how to make more terrariums as we know they can be quite addictive!
Tea, Coffee and light refreshments will be provided, all in the beautiful surroundings of Brockwell Community Greenhouses. Also, feel free to BYOB if you like.
Please book here direct with Jar and Fern

After this workshop from 2pm, if any BPCG volunteers are interested in bringing along their own vessel along, Jar and Fern have kindly said they could help them make something in these using some of Jar and Fern’s plants. Please let Kate know on firstname.lastname@example.org, if this is of interest.
If you can’t make this one, Jar and Fern will be hosting a second Demijohn Terrarium Workshop at BPCG on Saturday 7th October at 1.15pm to 3pm. Book here
