Kokedama (moss ball)

Over 50 people have attended this class


Kokedama is a bonsai art, which has its origins in Japan. It is a ball of soil, covered with moss, in which a plant grows. 

In this workshop, you will learn the art of Kokedama苔玉. 

Brooke from Drift - Lovely Things will guide you through the preparation of materials, layering and wrapping of a large size kokedama (so that you can easily replicate with any size at home) as well as how to look after your Kokedama for months and years to come. 

You will create your own individual masterpiece using natural materials such as moss & husk. 

These string garden beauties also make a great low maintenance styling piece for your home or work environment.

Class sizes will be limited and are suitable for teenagers and adults, anyone under 18 must be attending with an adult. No previous experience is necessary.

Products used contain soil and soil products. 

Participants who have been or may be affected by these products should consider bringing gardening gloves.

All materials to create your kokedama are included along with Morning Tea.
