Japanese Kokedama Making Workshop

Learn how to make two DIY kokedamas



2 hours Class size 1 to 20 (public classes), 12 to 40 label $80

Learn how to make a Kokedama string garden and 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! Perfect for beginners, plant mamas and green thumbs looking to add to their collection.

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class.



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



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!
  •  Two cocktails

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 a great indoor activity idea for individuals and couples as well as for a birthday, hens party, team building activity, bucks party or Christmas party.

This would also be a lovely gift for her or gift for mum.

What an awesome teacher! I learnt heaps of things I didn't know, even as a plant lover. I would highly recommend this course :)

Jasmine Walker Jun 2021


Learnt so much and had a great time! Great value and loved making adult mudpies

Catherine Clarke Jun 2021


I learnt so much from this class. I went in not knowing anything really about making kokedamas and came out feeling inspired

Anne Stewart Jun 2021


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.

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!
