Book Now (https://weteachme.com/l/xzsGEqkr)


Kokedama balls are the new alternative to bonsai! These fabulous hanging plants are grown in moss and look great hanging in windows.

Building on the basics of propogating succulents to use in garden craft, Penny will guide you in making two kokedama balls to take home. You will learn to make the structural support for creating a kokedama ball, learn how to embed and care for the plants and make a unique piece to take home.

Penny, a local horticulturalist, will share her enthusiasm for working with items from gardens to create beutiful craft and home decor items. This passion is incorporated into sustainability principles with many of the plants propogated directy by Penny from her own and local community gardens.

We will begin with light refreshments as Penny demonstrates the process for constructing a kokedama ball. We will then make our own bespoke kokedama ball to take home. Time permitting, a second smaller ball will also be made. These make lovely gifts for Christmas.

All materials and tools will be provided, but if you have cuttings you would like to bring along, or a plate of food to share with others, that would be most welcome!
