Kokedama Workshop – Japanese Living Moss Balls
Will will create and take home one medium-sized and one small Kokedama, the skills to create more at home and a couple of zen hours to escape and focus on a beautiful relaxing craft.
Kokedama which translates from Japanese to mean “Moss Ball” is a beautiful form of garden art, formed from the gardening styles of Bonsai and Kusamono, these have then been further developed to be wrapped in twine as a way of stabilising the plant for display and to allow the Kokedama to deal with the warmer temperatures found in our region. Guided by your experienced teacher Lilian Yangot, you’ll learn the technique of neat twinning, symmetrically placing jute twine around your moss balls to create a beautiful effect.
In this beginner-friendly class, you will learn about the materials that are required, how to make up the potting mix and the role that the different substrates have in ensuring that your plant thrives for years to come. Lillian specialises in creating symmetrical and neat string work and this is a focus of the class, ensuring you come away with two Kokedamas that you are proud to display in your home!
