Tipsy Terrarium Workshop
Create your own tropical plant oasis while sipping craft beer and eating Korean-style fried chook.
Richmond's The National Hotel is giving you an excuse to change up your average Thursday night drinks with mates. The longstanding pub has once again invited The Plant Whisperer to host a tipsy terrarium workshop.
Throughout the 1.5-hour class, the host will walk you through the creation of a mini plant world, providing tips on plant selection and design, as well as soil composition and layering techniques. All terrarium materials are included in the ticket price — expect an array of tropical plants to choose from, plus a glass bowl, stones, soil, moss and figurines. And all experience levels are welcome, whether you entered the class a pro or are a repeat offender black thumb.
The bar will also be slinging all its usual bevvies throughout the workshop (to help provide some liquid creativity) — along with its Thursday night $6 Cass and Korean fried chicken special ($15 for half a chook plus pickles and bao). Plenty of other bar chow is up for grabs, too, including steamed prawn dumplings, pork belly bao and five spice soft shell crab sliders.
The 1.5 hour class will cost $80, with drinks and food at the bar purchased separately. Bookings are a must.
UPDATE: OCTOBER 4, 2019 — With the first two workshops selling out promptly, a third one has been added on Wednesday, October 23. If you want to go, get tickets pronto.
