Calm your frayed nerves and fight the urban blues: in this special edition of the workshop, enjoy a lush poetry performance by poet Marc Nair while crafting your very own terrarium.

The terrarium workshop will be led by Jason and Joy who have had more than 5 years of experience creating and caring for terrariums. Marc's poetry performance—interspersed throughout the workshop—draws from his latest collection of poetry "Vital Possessions" which reflects on city-dwellers and their uneasiness in a world where nature is both man-made and natural.

Come join us for a meditative afternoon and take home a beautiful terrarium inspired by poetry (and be able to care for it).

If you can't make it on the 9th, fret not! There will be another session on the 17th of March happening at Plain Vanilla Bakery at Yong Siak street.

Shout-out to The Hive Carpenter afor generously sponsoring their beautiful venues for the workshop.
