Learn how to do Kokedama – “moss ball” – a traditional Japanese bonsai technique in which a plant is enclosed in moss instead of a vessel
Come and get your hands dirty with our kokedama workshop!
Kokedama means “moss ball” in Japanese and it is a handcraft in which a plant is enclosed in moss instead of a vessel. It adds a natural touch of greenery in the joyful form of hanging garden to any living or working space. It can be used for most of the house plants, as well as for a single piece bonsai standing on a shelf, hanging as a window decoration or as a part of a string garden.
During the workshop you will get the chance to create two kokedamas – just in case the first one was not perfect. We will use Asparagus setaceus, known al o as a lace fern. Despite its common name, the plant is not a true fern, but has leaves that resemble one. This plant love the humidity and need regular care – be aware of its need of regular watering. If it is not your thing, then please check our other workshop where we use a ever green succulent instead.
The workshop includes all the necessary materials and tools for two kokedamas, a demonstration of how to form and hang the moss ball and instructions for making your own kokedama and caring for it later. Join us and let us do some gardening together.
This workshop will be given in English.
