Japanese Kokedama Making Workshop

Learn how to make two DIY kokedamas



2 hours Class size 12 to 40     label $90

Plant parents, it’s time to take your obsession to the next level. Ditch dull pots, and learn how to make slick Kokedamas. Style them in a sweet dish, or hang your plants in style, suspending them from the sky!

Translating to “Moss Ball” in Japanese, these stunning displays are one of the best ways to keep small indoor plants in your home if you’re short on surface space – you can hang them anywhere!

In this hands-on workshop, you’ll make two Kokedamas to take home. We’ll cover all the essentials, including how to mix your own soil, moss cultivation, plant selection, assembly, and care to ensure your mossy-ball survives and thrives! Not to mention the know-how on making a healthy, handsome, and long-lasting Kokedama!

This class is perfect for beginners, plant mamas, and green thumbs looking to add to their collection.


What you'll get
  • Two Kokedamas that you'll make in class
  • All materials and plants included
  •  Knowledge on making a good-looking, healthy and long-lasting Kokedama!
What to bring
  • Bring a bunch of creativity and a desire to get your hands dirty!
  • Persistance, as it can be a bit tricky at first
Suitable for

This class is perfect for beginners - no prior experience is needed.

This class is great for a team building activity, birthday, hens party or bucks party.

A knowledgeable and enthusiastic teacher in a large open indoor setting, meant we all walked away with big smiles on our faces accompanied by two impressive Kokedamas.

Fun activity. Helena is an amazing instructor and the place is beautiful. Making the Kokedamas kept everyone engaged, focus and kind of relaxed too. Recommended

Emily Chou Mar 2022


The class was very well run - hands on, friendly and encouraging. We left with self-made kokedamas and the knowledge and skills to be able to make kokedamas at home. Great class.

Fiona Smith Mar 2022


Such a fun class, well paced and a good level of challenge with a lovely, fun teacher. I’ll definitely make more kokedamas with the skills I learned.

Excellent workshop - came away with two kokedamas - the time flew by but never felt rushed. The Plant whisperer - our terrific instructor - kept instructions very clear and simple - stepped through each process and demonstrated well. Never felt left behind and she came around and checked in with everyone very regularly making sure we felt comfortable with what we were doing. She gave terrific and positive feedback at all stages. The workshop venue is light, bright and airy - all participants were well spaced out and Covid safety was clearly practised. An excellent way to spend a few hours and have some very tangible evidence of what we achieved.

Marie Ilagan Jun 2021


Had a great time making kokedamas! Instructions were clear with enough time to finish two. Thank you!

Simon Gough Apr 2021


We attended the kokedama class as a birthday present and it was a wonderful experience. The process was well-explained, along with a lot of advice on technique, care, and suggestions on how to decorate with the kokedama once we brought them home. We went home with four kokedama and an eagerness to learn more — would definitely recommend the class to others!

Elizabeth Hoey Apr 2021


This was a lot of fun. Haylee was friendly and helpful, providing clear instructions on how to make your Kokedamas. Working with the moss was really enjoyable and it was really satisfying coming away with 2 Kokedamas that I had made myself.

Christina Nguyen Mar 2021


The teacher was great and had lots of handy tips for plant care. I liked the funky open space venue. We made two kokedamas so it was definitely good value for money.

Hailey, the plant whisperer, was Fanatstic! Clear instructions and very patient. I left the class with 2 kokedamas which looked pretty cool for my first effort.

Thanks Hailey!
