Terrarium Building Workshop

Class Description

Bring nature inside with an indoor terrarium! Indoor terrariums are simple to create and maintain. They add an earthy tone to any room, plus it’s exciting to watch them grow.
Join Cory as he teaches a brand new workshop to the public that involves building your own living terrarium to take home. This workshop will require you to get in touch with nature as you get your hands dirty by applying the soil, and moss inside the terrarium. He will explain the steps of assembly, and a lesson on caring for them and keeping them alive once they are taken home. This is a great class for kids and adults. There is no prior experience needed!
The class instructor, Cory Manley is a 24 year old, self-taught painter in the Cleveland area. He specializes in acrylic paintings with a focus on dreamlike, surreal landscapes, with a common theme of using bold colors.
Cory started drawing as a young child, and has taken many art courses throughout his journey in school; however, in 2013 he decided to pick up a paint brush because he wanted to try a new medium. Since then, he practices just about every day, and his paintings are quickly gaining the attention by many people.
In 2013, Cory began teaching painting classes with the public, to share his style, techniques, and love of art with people all over the Cleveland area. He has taught hundreds of people over the past few years, and each person leaves happily with their own project to take home.



All materials will be provided. However, if you choose to bring in your own jar (with a lid), Cory extends a ticket price of $25. Decorating the terrarium is a huge part to making the terrariums fun to look at. Rocks, gems, and other small decorative pieces will be provided, but Cory also encourages his students to bring a small item or two to add if they have it laying around the house. These items could include rocks, crystals, small figurines, etc.
