Course Description

Arts & DIY

Warm up this January and get growing in the heart of winter. In this workshop, you'll learn the basics of how to create an air plant terrarium and how to keep your plants happy and healthy from master gardener Leelee Dameron. Then pick from a variety of materials, glassware,  air plants, and crystals to create your own garden under glass.

Leelee will show you all her tips and tricks for terrarium-making. You'll learn the basics of how to care for the popular and easy-to-grow Tillandsia (air plants—they need a little more love than just air alone!). You'll have a ton of different options of plants, sand, shells, and other natural decor to choose from plus get 1:1 help from Leelee to create your own terrarium in the second half of class.Â

If you want your terrarium to have a theme, intention (how about a 2019 goals garden?), or just something sparkly, we will have a selection of rough gemstones on hand, along with their meanings, for you to choose from. With step-by-step instructions, you will create a stunning terrarium to inspire you every day.

No two terrariums will look alike at the end of this unique workshop, and you'll end up with a beautiful, unique work of art to decorate your home, office, or next event.Â

This workshop will be held at Leelee's home studio (and indoor jungle) in Avondale/North Logan Square (address provided upon purchase). Get inspired for your 2019 #plantgoals and ask Leelee any quesitons you have about general plant care too.  BYOB.

This course was amazing. I learned so much and had a wonderful time. The instructor took the time to make sure everyone in the course understood what was going on and was always avilable for questions. I will definitely be taking this course again.
