More About Your Host

Jar and Fern



Hi, we are Will and Madeleine and we set up Jar and Fern in December 2015 out of a love of all things green and planty. After creating lot and lots of terrariums and giving them away as gifts to our friends and family, we decided to try selling them at Brixton Market. Two and a half years later here we are! We make our creations at our studio in Peckham with the help of our great team!

Experiences by Jar and Fern



Join us to learn how to create your own unique Japanese hanging plant arrangement. 'Kokedama' translates from the Japanese words for moss ('koke') and ball ('dama') - it is the art of freeing the plant and planting it in a moss covered ball!




Come and learn how to make your own garden-in-a-jar and hear about the fascinating history of terrariums!




These beautiful vintage wine-making bottles make the most eye-catching terrariums. We will show you all the techniques and give you the tools to create these from scratch. We will explain the history of Terrariums, how to care for them and the ideal plants to fill them with. You will be provided with everything you need to create your own ecosystem. We will have a range of plants for you to choose from including Fittonia, Ivy/Fern and Moss as well as a large sealable glass demijohn. We will guide you through creating your own terrarium which will be all yours to take home at the end of the session.




Join us to learn how to create 2 of your own unique Japanese hanging plant arrangements. 'Kokedama' translates from the Japanese words for moss ('koke') and ball ('dama') - it is the art of freeing the plant from a container and planting it in a moss covered soil/clay ball. Kokedama evolved from the art of Bonsai - carefully made to brighten up Japanese homes, with people commonly creating 'string gardens' in which hanging Kokedama beautifully fill an empty space of a room. Kokedama are viewed as living art, with every one having the potential to be a completely unique creation . Kokedama also have a practicality to them as the external moss has the advantage of acting as a sponge, which you can dip in water every week and it will slowly release water to the roots of your plant.



Kokedama Making & Coffee!

Amazing, a must-do if you're looking for a different experience. All materials are provided and the team is at the ready to help you make the most beautiful terrarium. They're super friendly, you should really try it. Only thing was the venue wasn't great, it was a dark room in a pub, making it difficult to see what you're doing. But it doesn't change how happy I am with my terrarium! Already considering going back!
