Course description

Learn how to make Kokedama in Sydney.

Get your hands dirty 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. Join this workshop to learn step-by-step how to make your own kokedama and how to incorporate the Japanese “Wabi-Sabi” principle of embracing imperfection, impermanence and awareness of natural beauty into your everyday life. This style is perfect for succulents and adds aesthetic to your home or workspace.
