Rainforest Terrarium Workshop

The Ascot Lot x PUT YOUR HEART INTO IT Presents a Rainforest Terrarium Workshop event experience with passionate teacher Laura Issell on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

Not only will you learn how to make your very own rainforest, you will also get to take it home to enjoy for years to come. Included in this very special event is a chance to meet other locals who also love plants and graze away on local organic food platters until your heart and soul are content plus enjoy a glass of organic wine. Additional yummy beverages available for purchase on the day as the event is held in our famous Garden Bar! Go home feeling content with your new plant baby and empowered by the new knowledge you have learnt. Is there a better way to spend a Sunday with a loved one or friend?

A terrarium is a beautiful way to keep plants indoors and decorate your space and learn about our varied ecosystems. A closed rainforest terrarium is a miniature ecosystem consisting of plants, stones, moss, other materials and figurines, crystals or ornaments for decoration. Please feel free to bring along your own treasures to add to your terrarium. We provide a vessel and all materials needed.

You will learn how to build a healthy ecosystem and maintain it for years to come. You will leave with your own large terrarium and a head full of ideas on how you can make more!
