Is there anything better than a DIY project where you can BYOB?

Over-the-Rhine's new Tipsy Terrarium opens Aug. 28 and will offer build-your-own terrarium classes, like a sip-and-paint party but with succulents and sauvignon instead.

Owner Ravee Elmer got into terrarium making during the pandemic and decided to share her hobby with the rest of the city. Her storefront at 110 W. 15th St. will host "terrarium-making classes that double as a fun night out," says a release from developer 3CDC.

Tipsy Terrarium classes will include all supplies and workstations for people to transform glass containers into colorful verdant vessels.

There are adult classes, where grown-ups can bring their own beverages to sip while they craft, as well as options for those under 21.

“You’re allowed to bring in your own food, drinks and decorations,” Elmer says in a release. “Of course, if you forget to BYOB, Standard Beer Shop is right next door.”

The vibe of the shop is described as "farmhouse" by 3CDC and features a chalkboard wall along with two eight-person work stations adorned with decorative terrarium trinkets. Each class lasts two hours and cost $50 per adult. Workshops for those 17 and under run $25-$30 per person.

“I’m so excited about the fun, comfort, and originality that I have been given the opportunity to present to the neighborhood,” Elmer says. “I can’t wait for folks to settle in and create their unique terrariums at my new space.”
