What is The Sipping Plant?

The Sipping Plant is a place to spend some quality time with people you care about being creative and having fun!

We host arts and crafts classes - specifically succulent terrarium-making and string art classes - for anyone looking to have fun, make memories, and sip on a few drinks! No prior experience or knowledge of succulents, terrariums, crafting or string art is required to join the fun! 

We've got a lot going on here at The Sipping Plant that we know you'll love, but the thing we're most excited about is that we leave the creative freedom completely in your hands! You make all of the artistic decisions, and you determine what the final product looks like! We're here to guide you through the basic steps, and we're here to help you achieve your vision - but it's 100% going to be YOUR vision! You'll leave The Sipping Plant with a creation that you love and are excited to show off!

What is included with my reservation?

  • Container (each guest can choose their own from the variety of options available at their local store)
  • Drainage System
  • Specially-Blended Succulent Soil
  • Succulents (3 regular-sized plants OR 1 large plant and 1 regular-size plant)

The Sipping Plant provides all necessary tools and equipment for each craft for use by our guests during the classes. 

The Sipping Plant does not provide or sell refreshments of any kind, but we encourage you to bring your own! Crafts are more fun with something to sip on! Don't forget to bring cups, bottle openers, plates, napkins and silverware if you need it! 

How does the class work? What should I expect?

Guests should arrive 15 minutes prior to the event start time to get checked in, select a container or string art design, and get seated. Once everyone is seated, we like to kick things off with a toast! After that, each craft will be taught step-by-step to the entire class. Each time we explain a step of the process to the class, our instructors will walk around and offer more individualized instruction to any participants who need it.

How long do the classes last?

The Planter's Choice Terrarium class is scheduled to last 2 hours, but it can go more quickly when there are less people in the class.

The String Art class is also scheduled to take 2 hours, but our string artists tend to take longer than that to finish their work. The average time for our guests to finish is 3 hours.

Do I have to be 21 to attend? Are there age restrictions?

For events at Sipping Plant locations:

  • Guests under 21 are welcome to attend and participate! We reserve the right to ask to see state-issued identification for any and all guests consuming beverages in our locations. 
  • Planter's Choice Terrarium events are open to all ages.
  • String Art events are 13+ due to the dexterity and patience required to complete the craft. 
  • A parent or guardian must accompany any guests under 16 years old at all times.

For events at other locations:

  • The Sipping Plant must abide by the age requirements of the establishment where the event is held. Please check the event description on the booking page for more information about these specific events out in the community!

What if I'm not "crafty" or don't have a "green thumb?"

No worries! No experience is required! Our Instructors will give you detailed instructions on how to make your own unique terrarium or string art masterpiece every step of the way! By the time you leave you'll be a sucker for succulents or a string art master - and you'll probably be ready to come back to try our other craft!

If you're a known plant killer, we won't tell the plants if you don't! We're going to give you all of our tips and tricks for success - and we've got TONS of them! Caring for succulents doesn't have to succ - we promise!

And if you forget everything we say in class? It's all right here on the Plant Care page of our website! 

Do I need to bring or wear anything special?

We have all the materials, instructions and equipment needed to complete your craft. All you need to bring is your smile, your refreshments and utensils, your ID, and your friends and family! 

We have aprons available to protect your clothing, but if you join us for a terrarium-making class, you will be quite literally "digging into fun" with live plants, soil and moss. Please keep that in mind when choosing your outfit for your fun night out!

You can also check out our Facebook and Instagram pages to see what others wore!

What if I can't attend my event?

We understand things come up, and we'll try our best to accommodate you. If you contact us at least 24 hours prior to your event, we will be happy to help you reschedule your reservation!

If you do not contact us prior to missing an event, we consider that a no-show, and we cannot reschedule you to another time. If you need to reschedule due to an emergency please call or email us as soon as possible, and we'll do our best to find a solution for you.

If you cannot attend and don't want to reschedule, we do not offer refunds, but you can give your ticket to someone else. You will need to send an email from the email account you created your booking with listing the name of the person who will be using your ticket, and then they can check in with their ID and your name at least 15 min prior to the event start time.

What if I'm late?

If you're running behind, you could miss valuable instructions and interrupt your fellow crafters. We ask that all participants arrive 15 minutes prior to the event's start time so everyone can get seated and get started on time. If you happen to be running late, we will not wait on you to start the class, but we will catch you up quickly as soon as you arrive!

We reserve the right to refuse to accommodate you should you arrive so late that there is no longer a reasonable amount of time to complete the craft during the class time. This determination is up to the sole discretion of our instructors.

If you have any questions about your upcoming event, feel free to contact your local store!
