Workshops

terrarium on the hill

We aim to foster interest in plants and terrariums through fun educational experiences. All our workshops emphasize 3 important aspects of terrarium making.

  • Plant. An understanding of the plants used, their character, how to work with them.
  • Design. Aesthetic considerations including container shape and size, plant and feature placement, styling, landscaping, best design practices.
  • Care. Plant needs and keeping the miniature garden healthy over time.

WORKSHOP TYPES

The Ohsum Mossum studio space

Our beginner-friendly workshops cover most common types of terrariums and plants.

  • Closed jar workshops use moss, small tropical plants and aquatic plants in a range of closed jars and cases.
  • Open jar workshops use succulents, cacti, air plants, lichen and small tropical plants in a range of open jars and cases.
  • Masterclass workshops are special projects that are extra interesting and challenging, but still easy enough for beginners.

Public workshops are held weekends at our workshop space or around KL either in pre-registration or walk-in format. Check our calendar to join us. When experienced, returning students can use our space and materials for their terrarium projects paying only for jars and materials.
