F.A.Q (Frequently Asked Questions)

Q: What’s the difference between Free-building & the Workshops? A: Free-building is more on you using our facility and materials to create your own style/design with minimal guidance. Workshops are more like classes with set designs to be created. Materials that will be used for the class will be provided 

Q: How long do the classes last? A: It takes around 1 hour for both DIY & Workshop classes. Although you will be provided ample time if required. 

Q: What do we wear? A: Creating your own terrariums is a beautiful mess. We will provide aprons, but we recommend wearing something you wouldn’t mind getting dirt on- just in case!

Q: Is there an age restriction? A: 18+ for the Freebuilding & Workshop. But it is possible for kids age 8+ to attend with parental supervision. Great for family bonding.

Q: Is there parking in the premises? A: There are metered parking along S. San Pedro St. where we are located. There are free 2 hour parking along Crocker St. between 7th and 8th St. And there are parking structures nearby for around $7-$9 daily flat rate. Uber / Lyft are ideal. *Consider the area where you are parking, and park at your own risk.
