About This Class


Get ready to get your hands dirty and create your own beautiful Kokedama. Translated in English as 'Moss Ball', Kokedama is ancient Japanese garden art. Although these little guys have been around since the early 1400s they're making a big comeback as a unique way to display plants.

They're easy to customise and are perfect for brightening up your home and garden. Plus they make for awesome gifts.

In this class we will cover:

  • The art of making your own kokedama
  • How to suspend and hang your creations at home
  • Tips and tricks to care for your kokedama

At the end of the class you'll have created your very own Kokedama that you can either hang or display around your home.

Creating beautiful plant displays

Having spent the last 14 years living in apartments I'm passionate about bringing the outdoors in and gardening in small spaces.

I love sharing my passion for plants and getting people excited about fun ways to creatively display them, whether it's kokedamas, upcycling vintage vessels or terrariums.

Not only do I display beautiful creations with careful detail, I also takes great pride in producing fun and educational classes.
