Making a Succulent Garden in a Ceramic Bowl

Course Overview

Bring the beauty of the outdoors into your home – you can learn how to make a lovely Succulent Garden in a ceramic bowl for your home or work!

Succulents are hardy plants that are very easy to care for – you don’t have to have a green thumb – and they don’t take up much space.

A succulent garden is a fantastic way to bring a variety of colours to your home or work place. They provide a brilliant pop of colour to any setting and look lovely on a window sill or as a table centerpiece.

You can have fun building a gorgeous succulent garden to enjoy, or you may want to give your succulent garden as a unique gift to someone.

The Succulent Garden in a Ceramic Bowl workshop will provide you with step by step guidance on how to make your own garden using succulents. You will learn to choose the best succulents for the garden, design a landscape, build your own garden and know how to take care of it.

By the end of the workshop you will have come away with your own succulent garden in a ceramic bowl to take home and care for.

Macquarie Community College operates from a range of venues across Northern and Western Sydney. We have campuses in Blacktown, Carlingford, Chatswood, Epping, Mt Druitt, Richmond, and Ryde. Enrol now!
