Kathy is back in the makers space for the last Kokedama Workshop for the year! These are perfect to create and gift to that someone specials! In our last workshop the attendee's also had the opportunity to create some gorgeous simple Macrame hangers for their plants. You will be guided on how to craft these as well as learn how to make your beautiful Kokedamas.

Our Kokedama workshops are always so popular, so don’t delay booking your ticket for this session. So, what is a Kokedama exactly? They’re basically a hanging plant, but the container is made of moss rather than a pot, and the moss ball is then wrapped in twine. Colourful twines and strings can be used making them look funky and decorative. And you don’t have to hang them – they can line up on a shelf and sit pretty too!

Join us for some hands-on creativity – creating Kokedama. BYO your favourite vino, friend/s and nibbles to enjoy a Wine down and chill Friday sesh!  We will supply the glasses and serving boards for your nibbles.

Kokedama has been said to have originated in Japan ‘Koke’ meaning moss and ‘dama’ meaning ball, the moss ball is an adaption of the authentic Bonsai. These Kokedama sculptures are a display of indoor and outdoor beauty that can be considered an extraordinary piece of ‘Art and Nature’ wrapped in moss and held together by string - this time we will be introducing some coloured twine to really make your plants POP with colour!.

The presenter Kathy Kai will take you through a hands-on workshop to make your Kokedama plant balls. You will be encouraged to bring out your creative side as we share with you how to choose quality plants, what essential materials you need to create your Kokedama and techniques to ensure your Kokedama lives a long healthy life.
