‘Moss ball bonsai,’ Kokedama is the Japanese art of planting without pots. A ball of soil or clay is covered with moss is used to support the plant’s roots. Considered to be cheerful, peaceful, and calm, this charming design style began in the seventeen century. Perfect in small spaces, Kokedama are often presented on decorative plates, wood branches, or stone but they can also be suspended in the air with the help of a cord. In this workshop, you’ll learn the history of this art, get an introduction to moss (an often ignored member of the plant kingdom), and learn to make your own beautiful kokedama. An unusual and low-maintenance hostess or holiday present!

All materials required will be provided to create two kokedama balls per participant. If you would like to purchase more plants, please visit our Garden Shop. The workshop is not affiliated with the Certificate in Floral Design.
