The Art of Terrarium making is taught by Dr. Abhijit Varpe - Proprietor of CoppeR BrainS. He runs a successful dental practice in the suburbs of Mumbai for close to 6 years now. Apart from being an excellent dental surgeon, he has always been extremely passionate about nature and all other art forms. To fulfill his artistic inclination he had also pursued a degree course in fine arts at the reputed J.J.School of Arts.
Being an avid collector and connoisseur of plants, the lack of space in a city like Mumbai got him thinking. With the aim of having a piece of nature in one's home no matter how space starved the place is, was born the art of terrariums. A lot of studying has gone into mastering this art form and thus he would like to impart the basic knowledge behind making terrariums to everyone who is enthusiastic to learn.
