London Terrariums Boiling Flask Workshop

Continuing London Terrarium’s second month of workshops at Blue Shop Cottage.
Come and celebrate by making your own Boiling Flask Terrarium!

We will talk you through the history and science behind these self sustaining ecosystems and why we find them so fascinating, before you get your hands stuck in and make your own to take away and watch grow!

What does a workshop include?

You will learn how a terrarium works; how these self-contained ecosystems survive so well on their own and how to look after them.

We will start with a short introduction explaining the history and science that goes into building a terrarium, from the different plants you can use to why activated charcoal has become an essential for us.

Then it is up to you guys to get your hands in there and build your own to take home and watch grow!
