What’s it all about?
The word Kokedama simply means ‘moss ball’ but we think it’s so much more exciting than that! In this class you will learn how to take an ordinary small plant and wrap it in moss and string, turning it into an extraordinary ball-shaped delight that you can hang anywhere inside your home. This is a great opportunity to get your hands into some dirt and play with plants while learning a new craft.
What will we cover?
The class will cover the messy (but fun) design process of making Kokedama. You will receive a small potted plant and undertake the hands-on process of transforming it into a moss covered Kokedama, bundled together with twine. This will include learning the techniques to form the ball, protecting the roots of the plant, and how to wrap the string correctly, ready for you to hang your little greenery on display where you like. By the end of the class you will have the knowledge to create unlimited Kokedama, as well as how to care for your new treasure.
