Create Your Own Terrarium

  • Four Winds Waldorf School 30W160 Calumet Avenue West Warrenville, IL, 60555 United States (map)

Enjoy a night out that includes refreshments, on-site childcare, and and the creation of your very own terrarium just in-time for Earth Day! Terrariums are an expressive and appealing addition to your home or office. Join us for this hands on workshop created for adults, led by Stacey Carlton AIFD of The Flora Culturist.

A discussion about the history of terrariums will lead into a demonstration that will show the steps for building an open terrarium, including planting mediums, plants that work together, and maintenance.

Registration is $60 per guest. This includes a small, standard terrarium (open bowl), as well as planting materials and a set of coordinating plants. Standard soil cover and decor will be available. Each guest will build one terrarium. 

This workshop will run for about 90 minutes, and refreshments will be served after the workshop until 9pm.

Please register by Monday, April 17th.

Please indicate if you will need childcare and how many children you will be bringing with you. The childcare offering will be held in one of our Waldorf classrooms for a fee of $10 per child.
