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.

LOCATION & TIMES Group and private classes take place at my studio in Shoreditch. Group sessions take place once a month and last around 1.5 hours. Book a private workshop, if you would like to run this class around your schedule.

Wherever you are in the world, I can join you in the comfort of your own home for a virtual class. I will provide you with a shopping list beforehand and help you source everything you need for the class. .
