Moss Ball Kokedama Workshop
Made popular by Dutch artist Fedor van de Valk, string gardens take traditional Kokedama, a style of Japanese bonsai where a plant’s root system is wrapped in moss and bound with string, a step further by suspending them in the air; transforming the plant into unique hanging sculptural art forms.
Calandra Cooper will demonstrate how to make a suspended Kokedama moss ball before giving you an opportunity to make your own hanging art.
Take your moss ball home! Kokedama are a great way to bring diversity to your houseplants and beautify any space. They also provide an excellent way of gardening indoors when you’re unable to do so outdoors.
Please bring a plant. All other supplies and material are included.This is a beginner’s class. No prior experience necessary. Space is limited. Please sign up early. Wear suitable clothing or bring an apron. Duration: 2.5 hours. Class Limit: 15
