DIY Kokedama with Character for Kids (9-14 Years)

Learn the art of Kokedama making and then decorate it with up-cycled materials



2 hours Class size 1 to 8 (public classes), 12 to 14

label $20 - $29 (Earlybird price of $20 applies if you book into a public session 2+ days ahead, otherwise $29 per guest when you book for 1 guest, $25 for 2+ guests. $50 per class surcharge applies for private classes; price varies across dates)

Have some fun and learn a new skill (one you will use over and over again) in this environmentally friendly, zero waste kokedama making class for kids in Sydney!

In this two-hour class, which is perfect for beginners and kids aged 9 and above, we’ll take you through the steps of making a kokedama, AKA a Japanese hanging moss ball, just like the ones you see in the florists.

You can stop there and keep your kokedama as is or have a bit more fun and add your own spirit and flair by jazzing it up with our reuse resources! Give it some personality and design it for your space, whether that be quirky, retro, minimalist, traditional, loud, whatever takes your fancy.

At the end of the class, you will take home your funky DIY kokedama to cherish for a long time (because Kokedamas are super low maintenance plants).

Once you have the know-how and skills, this is the kind of thing you can easily make at home for gifts, perfect for housewarmings, birthdays, get well's, teacher gifts and so much more!

My daugheter and her 2 friends loved the class!
They made beautiful plants/plant hangers.

Thank you so much for a fun afternoon!

Brett provided a fantastic introduction that explained the purpose and importance of reverse garbage and reuse of materials to build the Kokedamas. Eav then lead the group to break into teams and work together to build and then decorate individual Kokedamas.
I’d highly recommend this as a group activity, the nine 8 Year olds thoroughly enjoyed the experience, learnt how to cool their wrists like kangaroos and were super proud when showing their creations to their parents!
Thanks so much Eav!
