String garden made of Peperomia kokedamas

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.

The ingredients of Kokedama

During the workshop you will get the chance to create two kokedamas – just in case the first one was not perfect. We will use the succulent Peperomias angulata which are always green, easy in care and, last but not at least, do not require to be watered often

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.

We do not plan any Peperomia beginner kokedama workshop soon, but we will held Asparagus kokedama workshop. The beginners are welcome!
