terrarium building is super fun & adaptable to so many different kinds of containers & creative expressions! come on out & learn the proper way to build a healthy, happy terrarium. lots of options for decorating your terrarium will be available (think fun additions like little spirit animals, mushrooms, doodads, etc…) you will learn how to layer the correct kinds of rocks/soil/sands/charcoal/ceramic shards &/or tumbled glass pieces & add in in your sweet little plants & decorative additions - endless possibilities. you will leave class with one glass terrarium (so 2 terrariums total for an adult & child pair) you have built & the knowledge to create more. i have been bitten with this bug & i love making them for friends birthdays & other celebrations. they make awesome, low maintenance, darling gifts. don't be afraid if you have no green thumb, these are fairly easy to keep happy! see my pinterest inspiration page HERE. *

a love for pretty, lovely, handmade items joined with all things vintage makes jenifer a happy lady. she loves to create in just about all ways; she’s a knitter, a canner/jammer/pickler, a collagist, a self proclaimed image taker & maker, a clayer, a draw-er, a painter, a semi-seamstress, a jewelry maker, & a baker, but unfortunately, just not a candlestick maker. jenifer has been making handmade items & selling since 2004, formerly under the name sprout studio.
jenifer has been teaching in various settings for over 15 years. she’s taught at camps, workshops, studios, conferences, & in many classrooms to ages 5 years old to 70+. she often teaches at makeshift society & handcraft studio school in emeryville & numerous other bay area studios & centers. sometimes she teaches out of the comfort of her butchertown home.
she currently is a kindergarten through 8th grade visual arts teacher in downtown san francisco. in 2014, she was awarded the herbst excellence in teaching award. even though she has a southern heart & hails from the southeast originally, she feels lucky to call san francisco her home.
