Terrariums, like all things retro, are back with a modern twist! Also known as miniscapes (modern, living sculptures) terrariums are more than just simple glass containers that display soil and plants, and on July 30th, the Boston Center for Adult Education (BCAE) at 122 Arlington Street will prove just that at their brand new class, The Littlest Landscapes: DIY Terrariums.
Terrarium pros Phillip Saul, proprietor of Sault New England, and Harvard trained Landscape Architect Matt Gillen will teach students how to create their very own customized mini-ecosystems in this hands-on class. Saul and Gillen will show students how the choice of plant, the placement of hard materials and additional props can give terrarium creations a fun, quirky and personal edge; and students will learn how to bring a whole new dimension to any home or work space.
By the end of the class students will not only have developed their green thumbs, but will have discovered a novel way to grow budget-friendly, low maintenance plants all in the form of a perfect, personalized tabletop garden. Participation fee is $48 for non members, $41 for BCAE members, and you may register on line at www.bcae.org, or by calling 617-267-4430.
