The art of kokedama draws on techniques from bonsai and tray landscapes to create a striking display. Literally meaning ‘moss ball’, the kokedama plant has its roots wrapped in a ball of soil and moss from where the bonsai or small houseplant emerges creating beautiful silhouettes and natural artistic compositions.
In this kokedama workshop, participants will learn how to create their own moss ball plant which they can take home afterwards. Indoor plant care guidelines will also be explained. All supplies (plant, moss and soil and decorative materials such as the display tray or string hanger) are included.
This workshop will be led by Stefan Thomas from Tranquil Plants who will give a presentation on Japanese kokedama and provide step-by-step guidance to create the moss ball plant. Inspired by botanical decoration, Stefan specialises in bonsai and kokedama and has a personal passion for the intriguing history and horticultural allure of this type of planting.
When booking, please specify which session you wish to book and whether you wish to use a bonsai (£30) or a palm (£25) in your kokedama. Light refreshments will be provided.
