Event description

Description

Learn how to make terrariums: the answer to every hot and dry centrally heated home, avoiding draughts, watering issues and proving even the smallest garden can have the wow factor!

Also learn about dry gardens, known as open container terrariums. The Chinese were reputed at scaling down mountains into 1m high scroll paintings: well this is the living equivalent bringing a taste of the exotic to every windowsill. These miniature landscapes add interest in the winter months and are great to make with children as the perfect backdrop for their dinosaurs, wild animals or fairies…

The workshop will emphasise the need to recycle where possible, reusing everyday containers and packaging (having said that you are welcome to bring your own containers) and is particularly suitable for those who don’t have acres of land to grow on!

If there is time we will also touch on how to grow bonsai.
