What’s it all about?

Think you’re too busy or clueless to bring nature indoors in 2016? Nuh-UH! Set your creative juices a-flowin’ and impress even yourself by making your own small-scale ecosystem at Terraria-MANIA!

Ms Candy Sparkles has done the research and the legwork (all materials will be supplied) to save you time and brain-space – she’ll teach you all you need to know about these eye-catching and practically no-maintenance plant creations, and assist you in building yourself a take-home succulent terrarium.

What will we cover?

Candy will fill your heads and your hearts with handy hints and inspiration to become a terrarium making maven. She’ll provide you with all the specifically selected “ingredients” you’ll need to assemble your plant-pet masterpiece under her guidance. Choose your plants, pebble colour(s) and figurine from Candy’s stash and create a mini-garden in your own glass bowl.

Also, dig up a teeny background story on the terrarium, and discover what makes these things work – and not work. Find out what materials to use and how to not break the bank in sourcing them. Learn plant, assembly and care recommendations, plus trouble-shooting tricks of the terrarium trade.

Who will be teaching?

Ms Candy Sparkles is an instagram-as-resume kinda gal. She’s crazy for makin’, and sharing the joy in teaching the peeps. She might have nannied in a castle in France, and eloped with a Texan-Mexican in New York City, but the smartest and most adventurous thing she’s done is teach at Laneway Learning.

She’s since become the craft blogger for BONDS, kicked-off her craft-class residency at The Brunswick Mess Hall, and had pieces hung at the National Gallery of Australia (say WHUH?). In 2015 Ms Sparkles was super-stoked to lead “Camp Candy” – the school holiday program for the magical Megan Morton’s “The School”. Candy? CanDO!
