Presenting the first-ever edition of a terrarium workshop and poetry performance mashup!

Feeling tired and uneasy from the dense urban life happens to everyone at some point in time—calm those frayed nerves and fight the urban blues through a 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, which will be 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 agonised and leave with your soul energised by poetry and your new-found knowledge on how to build a terrarium and care for it.
