Throughout the year, we offer opportunities for further learning through workshops and events on a variety of topics, including terrarium design, kokedama building, and other DIY plant projects.

In addition, we often host makers for trunk shows and gallery events, and host private workshops. Consult the calendar of events, below, and join our mailing list to receive periodic updates about what’s going on at Pistils.
