Kokedama is an ancient Japanese botanical art like bonsai or ikebana art. 

The word ‘Kokedama’ means ‘moss ball’ in Japanese as they are plants living in freestanding balls of moss-covered soil instead of pots.  

Kokedama are a beautiful way to bring greenery into your home and are ideal for apartments or flats with minimal space.

In this class, we will learn how to make them and take home your own kokedama creation!

What will we cover?

In this workshop you will learn how to:

– Make a kokedama moss ball

– Make the soil balls and cover them with the sphagnum moss to 

– Wrap them around with colourful yarn or twine

– Hang them at home. 

We will also learn a little about what plants to use and how to take care of our kokedama so they last.
