Did you know the humble moss has been around for 350 million years?? You could call it The Pioneer Plant™ as mosses were the first plants to emerge from the ocean and conquer land!
Instead of buying a kumquat tree this year — come join us and learn how to use this ancient plant to make YOUR OWN terrarium this weekend.

Homemakers, students, cubicle rats, startup founders… all are welcome!

No green fingers? No worries! It’s actually really easy to learn and construct a terrarium of your own. Once you have the know-how, you can add in little memorabilia from your own home, or even find special items online to make this terrarium uniquely yours.

All you have to do is learn the basics of building a terrarium or ‘mossarium’ using the planet’s oldest yet most underrated plant; MOSS. By the end of the workshop you will discover you have green thumbs after all! You will be under the care of the best instructor this side of the hemisphere – Charles of MOSSINGARDEN.

You will also learn how to avoid rookie mistakes like this: (i.e. learn how to NOT kill one of the most drought-resistant plants on the planet!!)

It was an uplifting workshop! It helped me better my relationships at work. —J. Wang, retail manager


I love being able to create my own mini civilisation. —YX, marketing exec


You also get to bring home your very first mini ecosystem creation. If you love games like SimCity, Civilization and They Are Billions — this is like stage 1 except IRL in 4D! You will be bringing home not just a piece of nature but also a slice of history.

Having a personal terrarium in your home or workspace will

☘ start your day right

☘ give you something to talk to if you don’t have pets

☘ help appreciate the role of moss in regulating nature’s ecosystems

☘ remind ourselves of our role in the social ecosystem (maybe???)

– all-natural ingredients only

Come join us at The Garden Slug (May 7th at 10am or May 21st at 10am) for this two-hour workshop.

Mandalas are increasingly being used as an art therapy resource, evidenced by the countless mandala-themed colouring books you see everywhere.
Instead of buying a colouring book – come join us and learn how to make YOUR OWN mandala this weekend.

Doodlers, dreamers, or those seeking to rearrange your inner lives… all are welcome!

It’s actually really easy to learn and design mandalas on your own. Why colour in someone else’s computer-generated artwork, when you can create by hand something that fully expresses your self?
It will be akin to your signature or thumbprint, only in the form of the most beautiful diagrams.

All you have to do at this workshop is learn a few different styles and patterns, that can be mixed and matched, to create a brand new mandala of your own. You’ll be a bona fide MandalaMeister™ right before lunchtime rolls around.

The mandala creation process is SO soothing… almost meditative. Allows me to access deeper levels of conscience. —Sara W., mother of 3


Soon this became a daily habit & helped me stabilise, integrate & re-order my inner life! —SY Tan, fintech developer


If you’re a designer, artist, or art therapist, this is a whole new realm that could open up a lot of new business. You can get in on the ground floor of this.
