Virtual Events

Succulence Virtual Events are amazing!

We know this because that’s what our clients say. Let us host a party with your friends or colleagues from anywhere in the world and help everyone make plant art for their home.


How do we schedule?
You work with our scheduling team (classes@thesucculence.com) to find a date and time that works for you. Then we collect a deposit based on your estimated headcount. Boom, your party is on! Your final headcount, address list, and remaining balance will be due 2 weeks before the event. Easy peasy!

What can we make?

Most of these workshops have upgrades available. The upgrades info is listed with the project descriptions at the end of this document.


How long do the workshops last?
We’re glad you asked! Our workshops are generally between 60-120 minutes, depending on how many people are in attendance and how many questions we get them asking. We can tailor the workshop to whatever time works best for you. The pricing stays the same, even if you use the full two hours.


How much does this cost?
Each standard workshop has tiered pricing (based on group size) starting at $55/person plus shipping ($15/kit for standard shipping and $20 for shipping to Eastern Standard time zones).

If you have a large class, we charge $50/person for any guests above 25 people. There is no maximum size. We can handle large groups.
