Description

Ever wondered how to use native plants inside your home?  Terrariums are a great way to create a self-contained ecosystem that can bring a little bit of our beautiful Australian landscape to you.

This master class will focus on how to use plants from the Victorian sandbelt region to build a terrarium and you get to take home you own personally made glass terrarium.

They are also a great and unique gift to give to your loved ones.

Topics Covered:

  • Victoria’s sandbelt ecosystem
  • Characteristics of sandbelt plants that make them suitable for a terrarium

In the afternoon of the same day and at the same venue we are running a master class on “Creating an Underwater Native Plant Jarrarium“. If you book both classes you can attend both classes for $80 ($40 per class).  You will need to book each class separately but use the “2 class – Terrarium & Jarrarium” ticket option when booking your tickets.
