What you will do

Single session

WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT? Searching for ways to green up your act? Kokedama means ‘moss ball’ in Japanese and we are turning this ancient art into a handy-dandy, beautiful ball of hanging Asparagus Fern.

WHAT'S INCLUDED? As well as being given all the materials you need to create your own Asparagus Fern kokedama, you'll learn how to string up your hanging garden and keep it thriving. If you would rather not hang kokedama, display the moss balls on altar-like stands and arrange in artistic groupings. Either way, the results are extraordinarily appealing.

At the end of the day, you'll leave merrily clutching your own unique work of living art.

We will also learn how to create an inside-out orchid kokedama in the private kokedama class.
