Thank you Haylee for a great class. Our Class Bento box arrived early, contained everything we needed to complete 2 Kokedamas. Your instructions were clear and easy to follow. A fun class, just perfect on a Saturday morning

Hayley was such an amazing teacher! I thoroughly enjoyed this class. So much so that I want to do it again! She was incredibly attentive and very encouraging. Was open to any and all questions and gave us all lots of information.
I left the class on a high and feeling like I could go and make 100 kokedamas!

It is so clear from the onset that Hayley is passionate about what she does. Thank you for such a wonderful afternoon.

Kokedama workshop review by James Dalton

Neville Sturwohld Jul 2021

My Kokedama workshop lesson was a Christmas gift from my daughter. I thoroughly enjoy the class. The Plant Whisperer was a very clear and patient teacher. Haylee gave us clear instruction on what to do and gave us time and encouragement to complete each part of the lesson before moving on. We were encouraged to ask questions and show our work. I really had fun. It was messy, mud on the table and on the floor. But the end product is just great. I have enclosed photos. I'm not sure where to hang my Ivy one yet, I thought it would be nice in the ensuite but my wife said no would see it there, its too beautiful to be hidden away. I'm looking forward to doing more before I forget how to do it. Thanks Haylee it was a great time.

Ruth Mar 2021

Loved my class with Haley the Plant Whisperer. She was very organised and extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of kokedama. Her presentation was easy to follow, great fun and very relaxing. She welcomed any questions and was very responsive and patient. One of the best classes I've done! Thank you.

Bianca Mar 2021

This was a great class. The instructor explained everything in a very easy to understand manner. The class was relaxing and enjoyable.

Tracy-Ann Mar 2021

Haylle is a born teacher. Her instructions are simple and easy to follow. She takes a step by step process and allows for all kinds of learners and abilities when providing instruction. She is happy to answer questions and includes future problem solving when providing instruction. The boxes come with live plants, still moist anf growing well, as well as enough materials to ensure there is more than enough for individual design or construction.
I have enjoyed the two different classes i have attended and would happily do more.
Thank you for the experince of learning a new skill, i have had a lovely time.
