Saturday, August 25, 2018 from 2pm - 4pm
Esters Wine Shop & Bar, 1314 7th Street, Santa Monica
We will be creating miniature desert worlds in glass terrariums, working with a variety of cacti, succulents, and air plants, as well as stones and sand. Each terrarium is like a landscape in a jewel box. We will consider color, balance and composition.
In this hands-on workshop, each participant will create their own terrarium with assistance from the instructor. A selection of plants and materials will be available.
All plants, terrariums, and planting materials included. Each participant will also receive a set of terrarium tools for their own to take home. Feel free to bring any small rocks or shells that you would like to add to your landscape!
Bubbles to drink provided by Esters.
Limited spaces available. All sign-ups must be in advance to ensure we have the materials available for you!

The Modern School of Flowers is inspired by Constance Spry. Spry began her floral design career in 1920s London, shocking the public with loose, wild arrangements in untraditional vessels that incorporated unexpected materials such as twigs, vegetable leaves, and wild grasses that anyone could find in the woods and their gardens. She opened the Modern School of Flower Work in 1935, with the idea that flowers were a source of beauty and healing that should be available to all. “I do feel strongly,” she once wrote, “that flowers should be a means of self-expression for everyone.”
