The class with Amy was really enjoyable - especially learning about the history of terrariums. I've been inspired to make more myself - Amy's info was practical as well as inspirational.

Considering for the same amount of money I could purchase a very simple and small terrarium, it was well worth the money to create my own in exactly the glass I wanted and in the arrangement I wanted while having something to do on the weekend. Great class with a nice class size without being too large. Only complaint was not necessarily having the choice of plant available as there is limited amount of each!
