Terrariums are fascinating little things – miniature, self-enclosed ecosystems encased in glass. Just imagine a tiny forest on your desk year-round – always there for your visual and olfactory senses to admire and enjoy – like being in a forest after the rain.
In this beginner-friendly workshop, floral designer Kiki Danninger will demonstrate how to create a simple terrarium with supplies you can acquire easily and affordably. Your terrarium will be green and fresh year-round, requiring little water or maintenance.
In addition to sharing a variety of design ideas, Kiki’s online workshop will cover terrarium maintenance and troubleshooting potential issues.
Kiki is a travelling floral and horticultural designer, specializing in creating living green walls, terrariums and dish gardens. She enjoys teaching people how to care for their tropical plants and guiding them in creating their own unique bouquets and arrangements.
