Enjoy getting dirty in this hands-on workshop as you learn the Japanese art of kokedama, the cultivation of a plant encased in a hanging ball of moss. The word ‘kokedama’ comes from the Japanese koke, meaning moss, and dama, meaning ball. After a brief discussion on the history of kokedama and a short demo, create your own Kokedama from plants of your choosing. Students will learn best practices for care and upkeep to ensure their new string garden stays beautiful and healthy!
Kokedama look beautiful dangling from hooks or twine or dotted around surfaces, and can be clustered together to create a striking indoor garden.
Each student will make up to 2-3 kokedama. All supplies included. For adults and teens age 14+. Sips and nibbles served!
