Evening

You may well be wondering what on earth is a Kokedama? Which is a fair point as the name is not a mainstream term...YET! It's the ancient art form of creating a traditional Japanese hanging garden and the latest botanical craze, currently sweeping LA and Sydney following on from the 2018 botanical trend and all round obsession with terrariums!

“Kokedama” is a Japanese word which literally translated means moss ball. Using traditional wrapping techniques and soil combinations we teach you the skills required to create these wonderful pot-less hanging plants. Not only does a Kokedama look amazing but they are really low maintenance and so much fun to make, we think once you see one you will just love them! 

In this hands-on taster workshop we will introduce the basics of Kokedama making and you will have the opportunity to make a creation of your own to take home.

During this 45 minute botanical workshop you'll create your own Kokedama from a tropical plant and learn best practices for plant care and upkeep to keep your new plant beautiful and healthy, all while enjoying complimentary soft drinks and nibbles.

A Kokedama workshop provides an opportunity to learn a new skill and connect with nature in a creative way, through an experience that is both playful and relaxing. With many Londoners not having outdoor space, attending a Kokedama workshop provides the perfect opportunity to get stuck into nature and leave with a beautiful plant that means you can bring the outside inside in your home as well.

Your teacher Hayley, is an experienced set designer and interior stylist for the film and advertising industry and can offer lots of tips on how to present your Kokedamas in your home.

The Venue The workshop will take place in a hidden, heated and covered garden, housed at the back of the jewellery store Kas & Ros right by the iconic Tower Bridge, with tube stations, Borough, London Bridge both nearby . The magical garden space, is decorated particularly for the event, so expect to see lots of examples of what you can create.

This is an example of what you should expect to learn at a workshop:

  • An introduction to the tradition of Kokedama making
  • Get to know your tropical house plant
  • Prepare your own soil mixture
  • Learn the basic method for the moss ball
  • Learn and perfect the skill of the Kokedama wrapping technique.
  • Create string supports to hang your garden
  • Learn about upkeep and how to maintain and display your new garden

Attended this class with my friend and it was absolutely fantastic. Hayley & Ros were great hosts . Really enjoyed the class - got a bit messy but that was expected and the end result was well worth it. My Kokedama is now hanging proudly in my kitchen.
