Petite Green workshop at Artifice store

Artifice store is excited to present you a series of workshops with the master of mini landscaping.. Amy Wong the creator behind the quirky Petite Green.

Amy will teach you how to create a succulent terrarium with attitude. This will be a golden opportunity to find out how to design and make terrariums from one of Melbourne’s leading terrarium-makers. You will learn plant selection, soil composition, terrarium care, propagating succulents and plants.

Bring a clean 2 litre clear non-coloured glass container such as a small fish bowl, glass teapot, jam jar (no lid required). Please make sure you can fit your hand into the opening of the glass container. All other materials will be supplied including a variety of unique succulent plants, small figurines, soil, rocks and other items to create your terrarium.

Amy comes from a background in the visual arts and has a degree in environmental microbiology… We would say this makes for an excellent combination!

What will we learn?:
• How to design and make a terrarium
• Plant selection
• Soil composition
• Terrarium care

What do I need to do?
·      Bring one clean 2 litre (maximum) clear non-coloured glass jar with an opening big enough for your hand to fit through. No lid is needed. If you have small figurines you would like to use bring them along.
