Our sister company, Sunshine & Succulents, has been at the forefront of the succulent trend since 2011. We've taught thousands of people (yep, thousands!) how to make succulent terrariums. We've been invited to teach at world class institutions like the San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers, the Ruth Bancroft Garden, and the San Francisco Botanical Garden. We've also been hired to do team building workshops for companies like Facebook, Google, Instagram and Airbnb.
And now, our workshops are available at Radish, our new shop in Petaluma!
Want to get creative? Check out our schedule of workshops below, and grab tickets for you and a friend. We can only fit 8 people per workshop, so don't delay or it may sell out!

Upcoming Public Workshops:
Saturday May 5th, 1-3:30pm: Macrame Plant Hanger Workshop @ Fiber Circle Studio, Cotati CA
We're super busy in April presenting at the Craftcation Conference in Ventura (April 4-8) and then preparing for multiple events, like Earth Day, Bubbles & Blooms at Gloria Ferrer Winery (April 22) and Butter & Eggs Day (April 28), so our public workshops are temporarily on hold- check back in May or reach out about setting up a private workshop below!
Macrame Plant Hanger Workshop
Get your retro groove on with this beginner’s macrame workshop! Macrame was huge in the 70s – but today’s macrame is far more modern and less... gaudy... than it used to be.
In this workshop you’ll learn basic macrame knots and you’ll make a stylish plant hanger for your favorite leafy friend. Each person will learn how to tie basic macrame knots and how to create a structure to hold your favorite plant pot. Then, you'll pick out an easy-to-care-for houseplant to plant in the glass bowl that fits in your plant hanger. You'll leave with a completed plant hanger and a freshly planted houseplant. You'll also get a handout with photos, so you can turn macrame into your new favorite hobby!
This workshop is 2-2 1/2 hours, although if you need to leave a little early, you can take the plant home with you to plant later.

Succulent Terrarium Workshop
Are you fascinated by succulents, but haven't had the best luck keeping them alive? Or are you an avid gardener just looking for a new project? Either way, this workshop is for you! In this creative workshop, you'll get your hands dirty while learning all about how to design with and care for succulents.
Pick from a huge selection of succulents and make your very own glass orb terrarium, with plenty of demonstrations and hands-on help along the way. All materials included. You'll practically be a terrarium guru by the time you leave!

Botanical Sugar Scrub Workshop - $40
If you've ever spent way too much on luxurious, chemical-free skincare products (or dreamed of doing so), then this workshop is for you.
In this amazing smelling workshop, you'll learn how to make a variety of exfoliating and moisturizing scrubs for your face and body, using all natural ingredients and essential oils- no fragrance oils or chemical additives.
Each student will take home a collection of their own handmade skincare products - keep them for yourself, or share with friends! You'll also learn where to order supplies so you can continue making these luxurious products at home.
Each student will take home 4 different 5oz. jars of sugar scrubs and will have a chance to decorate them if they'd like to.
Private, Team Building, & Fundraiser Workshops
Private workshops are fantastic for birthday parties, bridal showers, or just as an excuse to get together with girlfriends to do something creative and fun. We can fit up to 8 people for private workshops at our store, but we're also available to come to your home or to meet you at a restaurant or other venue of your choosing for the workshop.
Team Building workshops are a unique way to bring your colleagues together for a relaxing, easy-to-organize afternoon of creativity. We come to your office, get you to step away from your computers for a bit, and help you get to know your coworkers in a different light by learning new hobbies together.
Fundraising Workshops are a fun way to raise money for your school, community group, or organization. We can host them in our store for groups of up to 8 people, or we can come to your home or other venue of your choosing if you have a larger group. You get your supporters to sign up for the workshop, and we donate a portion of the ticket sales to your cause.
For all of our workshops, we provide all the materials, so it's no extra work for you. Our workshops are simple to organize, so you get to enjoy the workshop without any of the stress of planning an event.
