Japanese for “mossball”, the kokedama was invented in the 1400’s and is making its 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 the workshop you’ll be getting your hands dirty and will be guided through all the steps to creating your very own hanging moss ball. You will be taught how keep your kokedama nice and healthy, but fear not the kokedama is extremely low maintenance! This course is suitable for beginners.
My greatest love is plants and the way they breathe light into any space. By using complimentary and contrasting textures of my materials I am able to create miniature landscapes that trigger a sense of nostalgia and resemble familiar dreamscapes that we all fantasise of . My landscapes are made using traditional bonkei Japanese techniques which honour the landscape , and materials. I love connecting with people about their love of plants and how they use them in their spaces.
I really enjoyed this class which I attended with two friends. Our teacher was enthusiastic, knowledgable and friendly, plus it was so much fun putting the plants together! Highly recommended!
We learnt how to make kokedamas and how to look after them and where to place them. Bella, the instructress was enthusiastic and a joy to be with on the night. A wonderful experience.
A fun class, really enthusiastic and lovely instructor, in a welcoming space. Class numbers were just right to be able to interact and get assistance when needed. I loved being able to take home my creations at the end!
