Artists and Makers Series: Upcycled Bottle Terrarium (BYOB&B)
Join local artist, Laura Mae Noble for a fun evening of drinking and art. Each guest will build one gorgeous, living terrarium in a glass bottle, with mosses and small plants selected for their ability to thrive in a terrarium environment with minimal, simple care. Terrarium supplies, including moss and small terrarium plants are provided. Students should bring their own clear glass vessel that is about 750 mL- an empty clear glass liquor or wine bottle is a great bet. A small selection of bottles will also be availble to choose from.
This class is designed to encourage and empower exploration and further terrarium-building, for the benefit of plants, people, and planet alike! Great for any experience level. Those under 18 are welcome with one adult per youth.
Plant care instructions included, for a long, happy life of green goodness.
This is a BYOB&B event- Bring Your Own clear glass Bottle & Beverages. Save a bottle from the landfill, and make living art! Adults over 21 are welcome to sip alcoholic beverages.
