Terrart was born in Caracas, Venezuela, an idea developed during the mid-1980s. It was initially a small family-run business giving family and friends a unique present. Then it expanded to become a new concept of interior design inspired by nature: mini gardens in bottles.

Charly Uzcategui is an Engineer specialized in Geosciences who grew up surrounded by plants and natural environments. His drive and passion for terrariums and plants come from his parents who have been creating these beautiful and sustainable arrangements for more than 30 years.

Charly decided to bring his family heritage and expertise to New York City by combining his engineering drive with his love for plants, resulting in this marvelous project called Terrart NYC.

As an alternative to conventional gardens, for people seeking to stay connected to mother nature through these mini-worlds.

Wonderful experience for making custom terrariums. Great for dates or groups with friends. Plenty of room to have your own creative vision, but the team also helps guide you with suggestions. Very accommodating, lots of options to customize your terrarium to your own liking. You don't feel rushed and you feel welcome here. Highly recommend.

We did a private workshop for a teambuilding activity and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Charley is passionate and knowledgeable about plants and terrariums, and so naturally conveys that in his facilitation. He is a true teacher and artist! My team had a blast creating their own unique masterpieces and we'll 100% be working with Charley again!

Charly was great! He was so knowledgeable and helpful. Building the terrarium was a lot of fun and relaxing - definitely a great activity to take your mind off the day-to-day craziness of life. Would highly recommend as a gift. Loved how he came to us too and we were able to do it on the roof on a beautiful day!

We absolutely loved working with Charly. He was kind, engaging, and helpful. The class materials were easy to manage and Charly walked us through every step. We received detailed instructions for how to continue caring for our terrariums and it might even be the first time I keep a plant alive! We were so pleased with this class and highly recommend it to anyone who might be considering signing up.
