Goal of the course

In this workshop, you will make your own kokedama, learn about the unique soil properties and master caring for them at home. Kokedama is a style of Japanese bonsai, where a plant's root system is wrapped in moss and bound with string, transforming it into a unique sculptural art form. ‘Koke’ means moss and ‘dama’ means ball. It has come a long way since its traditional bonsai, including string gardens which allow plants to defy gravity and make a strong and peaceful statement.

Perfect for

  • People interested in plants
  • Group of friends
  • Cacti enthusiasts
