What we’ll do
Together, we will create a beautiful concrete planter from scratch using silicone molds and we will also use a pre-made planter and plant a cute succulent in it, from our large collection of succulents!
At the end, each guest will have two lovely planters! One you take home right away with a planted succulent in it and the other you collect after a day of drying or it can be mailed to you for a small fee.
We start off by putting on an apron and gloves (as we will work with concrete and pigment), review the materials and handling instructions, followed by an introduction to the tools and equipment, and then select from a variety of molds.
You have the option of traditional grey concrete or mixing it up by using a bone white concrete, perhaps adding a bit of colour pigment to it for a marbled or gradient look!
I will guide you through the mixing and pouring stages along with the techniques needed to get your desired look. We then use a pre-made planter and plant a succulent in it with all the ideal materials for it to thrive!
After the concrete has set in 24hrs, I will finish your planter with a gentle sanding if needed, seal it and attach rubber feet to protect your table.
What I’ll provide
Non-alcoholic drinks(Water, Sanpellegrino, Nespresso) will be provided during the workshop.
PPE, concrete mix, pigment, spatula, mixing bowl, oscillator, silicone mold, soil, akadama, pre-made planter & a succulent.
What to prepare
It is suggested to avoid wearing clothes that you are afraid of getting slightly dirty, in the event of a spill or accident. Aprons and gloves are supplied in the workshop.
You are able to purchase additional concrete planters, tool sets, succulents and concrete goods as well.
What else you should know
No matter your experience working with the materials, know that there isn't anything a bit more powder or water can't fix! I'll be with you every step of the way. Mandarin offered evenings & weekends.

Hands down best plant shop. Amazing customer service, great purchase and delivery experience, they really take themselves seriously. Their plant selection is great and plants always arrived healthy. I've bought 8 plants there now.
This experience went far beyond any expectations I had. I opted to do this workshop as a surprise for my partner's birthday with some friends, and we all left feeling like we had an amazing experience.
Love that you can select size of plant and images are not stock internet images but rather images taken of plants in the shop. Plants were expected size and healthy. Delivery was easy and hassle-free! Would definitely order from JOMO Studio again.
A wonderful experience and you get to make something small and pretty. Graham was very knowledgeable and passionate about what he does and it definitely shows. I would highly recommend this calming experience to everyone.
By far the best place in the city for plants & I highly recommend them to everyone & anyone who listen to me talk about plants. Super helpful customer service & perfect contactless delivery in Toronto.
Our overall experience at JOMO Studio was excellent. I selected this experience for my wife’s birthday and I must say that both of us truly enjoyed it. Props to Graham for being such a wonderful host and for walking us though the experience.
I ordered my first plants a month ago and haven't quite been able to stop! The plants are beautiful, always arrive in great condition, and usually within 2 days of ordering. I love that JOMO has lifetime support for their plants that you can contact them with questions.
Our experience with JOMO Studio was excellent. I selected this experience for my partner's birthday — we loved it and found Graham to be knowledgeable, approachable and genuine. It was a lovely experience for us and we really felt the *Joy of Missing Out*.
The site tells you which plant is animal friendly, for those with animal family members. Plants were very well packaged and delivered within a few days. If you love houseplants and want to learn how to care for them, this is the place to go, highly recommend.
