In two short hours, the expert teachers and assistants from Chicago Terrarium Authority will take you through the exciting history and development of terrariums, guiding you through the process, aftercare and science with expert knowledge to help make your terrarium as healthy and attractive as possible,

During the class we’ll present the "Catch of The Day," a hand-selected assortment of lush, easy growing tropical plants to create unique and exciting arrangements all within a natural self contained ecosystem. As a special Camper bonus, "Prized Plants" will be awarded to any camper who answers our plant trivia questions first during the workshop.

Be prepared to get your collective hands dirty!

You’ll be provided with all the essential know how and equipment including; probiotic soil, glassware, hand-selected tropical plants, a menagerie of mystical creatures, moss, stones, and specialized tools designed to help you put your terrarium together.


We’ll also create a rapid “flash swap,” to quickly trade plants and design ideas with each other and collectively inspire.


Finally, when all the dirt has settled, we’ll end our Terrarium Workshop with some story-telling from some Campers on how they artfully built their terrariums!

What's Included?

All supplies to create your very own terrarium! Fizz and nibbles will be provided as well. Please let us know if you have any allergies or dietary requirements in advance so we can ensure that we can cater for your needs.

Terrarium Testimonials:

Great workshop! It was nice to have guidance during the tricky parts of the class. It was even nicer to leave with my finished terrarium!

Fun, high energy workshop! Left with a gorgeous terrarium filled with tiny creatures. My very own indoor garden. Lovely way to spend the evening.

The class was absolutely fantastic with a great blend of plant knowledge, trivia, fun. Chillaxed.. Best part? Left with a terrarium to brag up, and a desire to create another! High recommend, great hosts!

This was a great way to spend a Friday evening. We not only got to build terrariums, but were also taught how to do it ourselves in the future. I'd definitely do more events with Chicago Terrarium Authority in the future.
