Kokedama: Japanese Moss Ball Workshop

What you'll learn

Learn to make stunning kokedama floral displays with our floral design short courses in Sydney!

Get your hands dirty with this course, as you make two kokedamas to add a little green to your home.

Kokedama is an ancient Japanese technique (meaning moss ball), where a plant’s root system is bound with moss and string, transforming it into a mini work of art.
