Description

Kokedamas, an alternative version of the bonsai, originated in Japan in the 1600’s. Now they are making a big resurgence as they look incredible and are easily transported to decorate any area of the home.

Besides hanging from of string, these moss balls can be placed on decorative plates to be used as feature pieces. They are a breeze to dress up for special events and also make fantastic gifts.

In this hands on class, Tanya will teach you the technique of planting where the roots and soil are wrapped in a ball of moss and decoratively bound by string to hold everything together. We’ll provide a selection of different plants and succulents for you to create your very own masterpiece.

Was great to see how easy it was to put together a Kokedamas. Tanya was very good at explaining what to do and made it lots of fun. She was a great teacher.

This course was so much fun! Got some great Kokedamas to take away, and some materials to make another one at home. Would definitely recommend!
