    I had such a great time at this class. Tera does an excellent job walking you through the process by putting together a sample first. She provides nice succulents and accessories to personalize your terrarium. I am hoping she will offer more classes later in the year. A class before the holidays where you could make a few smaller terrariums as gifts would be great. I highly recommend this class.

    Tera was amazing!! She gave great instructions, provided great materials and was super creative. I would without hesitation take another class from her. This class was so much fun! And I left with a nice terrarium.

    Great class, so much fun. Tera made an example one, but gave really clear, easy to follow directions. Tera provided so many beautiful succulents and fun accessories to add. Made a beautiful terrarium! Definitely recommend. Can't wait to take another.

    This was my first Dabble class, and it proved to be a really enjoyable experience. Signing up, payment, and contact with the instructor was all very easy through the Dabble website. The class was taught by a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable instructor, Tera, who immediately put the class at ease and set a tone to have fun while being creative. She was easy to follow, no matter what experience you had coming into the group, and had a huge plethora of supplies to inspire creativity. The class structure included an initial step by step instruction about the terrarium making process, notes on feeding/watering/care, socialization once we were set free to create, and concluded with a guided tour of the Intuit Gallery where the class was being held (included in the class price). The class had access to all the same materials, but each terrarium was unique and beautiful. The best news is that a week later, mine is still alive! It was a really great time at a very inspiring venue in Chicago.

    Tera was great - she provided clear instructions and was available to help all throughout the session. She brought a ton of options when it came to the plants, rocks, fillers, decoration, etc. - I loved the variety!

    Really fun class. Tera did an excellent job of explaining how things work and demonstrates the basic steps of putting together a terrarium, and then gives lots of options to allow students to experiment and create their own. So much fun. I highly recommend this class.

    Tara was really positive and accessible during the whole class. She did a demo and explained the process, then came around encouraging and helping during the class. The materials were great and well-organized and we had plenty to choose from and plenty to go around.
