Learn how to make your very own terrarium at this pop-up workshop

August 8, 2018

 

Ever dreamed of creating a terrarium from scratch? Now you can make your indoor garden fantasies come true with the help of Backstage Botanicals, a Washington Heights-based business that has recently begun offering pop-up workshops in local coffee shops like the Chipped Cup.

 

The company is the brainchild of a performer who first created terrariums as an alternative to quick-to-wilt flower arrangements typically sent to actors in their dressing rooms. In a few short years the mini gardens have become a hit in the New York theater community, surfacing in the dressing rooms of stars such as Josh Groban while performing in "Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812" and the cast of "Mean Girls."

 

 

Recently the concept has been extended to pop-up shops (there was one in May at the J.Crew store in Rockefeller Center) and–wait for it–DIY classes.

 

Led by one of Backstage Botanicals' designers, the next workshop is tomorrow at the Chipped Cup from 1-7pm (most terrariums take about an hour to make). Tickets cost $30 and include all the supplies you need to create your own garden-to-go, including one vintage glass container, one succulent plant, rocks, soil, wood chips, sand, and lavender.

 

Space is limited, so RSVP on the website or via Facebook. And if you can't make it tomorrow, there are sure to be more–all information about future events gets posted on their Instagram
