Living Art: Succulent Plants Workshop
April 8 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Momentum provides free art opportunities to underserved populations impacted by disability, brain injury, or living with a mental health diagnosis.
In this workshop, you’ll get your hands dirty while learning how to create your very own indoor garden. Learn the techniques on how to plant in a non-draining container. You will get to choose from a wide variety of succulents, rocks, moss, shells, and gems to create your very own mini ecosystem. Each participant will have their choice of 2-3 succulents or even a cactus to use for their terrarium. We have different planters available for you to create your very own, unique terrarium including terra cotta pots, glass mason jars, and other glass jars. Though we highly encourage you to bring in something that is special to you. Plants can be put into basically anything and if for some reason, your pot doesn’t work we will have others here to choose from.
We are excited to be partnering with local business, Art Terrarium, to offer this incredible workshop! They have grown from a pop-up shop to a brick & mortar in their own space, located at 106 11th Street in Downtown Des Moines. If you need help with your plants or want to host a private planting party, their staff is super friendly and will be happy to answer any questions.
