Downtown Dispatch: MADE's Mini-Forest Craft Night

Lately I’ve been noticing these cute indoor planters on various blogs and home décor websites. They are generally made from a glass, see-through jar or vase (lid included occasionally) with a mixture of peat moss, grass, rocks, and dirt placed nicely inside. Sometimes cute miniature gnomes, fake mushrooms, tiny trees and plastic animals are placed inside the glass jar as well to create a forest scenery effect.

Well, these little landscaped works of art, or terrariums as they are called, seem to be all the rage right now and MADE art boutique in downtown Phoenix is offering a class this Thursday, March 24, where they will be teaching how to make these cute conversation starters (because who doesn’t love a pretty scenery in a jar?).

The Grow-Op’s own Josh Hahn and Kenny Barrett will be showing attendees how to grow plants in unexpected places, as well as how to make a self-contained dessert or moss terrarium in a old lightbulb, glass lamp, recycled television (so neat) or really any glass object that someone may find.

The cost of the class is $15, and all materials will be provided for each participant to make one terrarium.

The class begins at 6:30 p.m., and is being held at MADE, 922 N. 5th Street (just a few blocks from the ASU downtown campus).
