Thanks so much for the wonderful class yesterday. Nzingka F.

The workshop was amazing and a great way to meet the neighborhood folks. I was thinking of introducing you to our Harlem plant swap group as well as the rose garden group. all neighborhood plant lovers that could completely enjoy your enthusiasm. Here is also a picture I promised. Waiting for some growth to show off on Instagram! Bushra S

I want to express my gratitude towards your dedication for the time and effort you made to bring people of our community together for a shared and enjoyable event. It is with great appreciation that we have someone like you with so much passion in art, knowledge and gardening. The Terrarium workshop is something I’ve never experienced, furthermore, I have learned what it takes to create one with the support and guidance of our instructor. I, Nermeen (Mimi) Allam have enjoyed working on this piece and would gladly say all the other participants were just as excited. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

The workshop was better than expected! Besides the therapeutic aspect of learning how to hand craft my own terrarium, I got to meet people with similar interests in my neighborhood. I loved discovering this community garden, an oasis in the middle of a busy neighborhood. Sinziana D.

An educational, interesting and fun workshop that culminated with a beautiful glass terrarium to take home. Congrats! Hazel D.

About the Artist

Vermilion is a make-something-out-of-nothing artist. Her textile art, collages, and assemblages have developed as of late into installations that have an underlying social or political message but also fulfill a need for playfulness, humor, surprise, uniqueness.
