Val's class was fun. The materials arrived well packaged, including two plants, and everything needed to make two different kokodamas. The instruction and pace were good.

Enjoyed it- the product box arrived in good time, quick and simple class - it only took an hour.
One of my plants was 2 plants in one- so I made a small one with the bits that were left!
V happy with results!

Unfortunately, I have not received an email on what to prepare prior to class commencement.
Teacher was great, made it very engaging although I found it moving slightly too quick.
Overall, good experience

Great class but a little challenging for our younger kids, it was fabulous to get them out of their rooms & participating in a social environment with family & friends (we did it with our neighbors)

Host was very upbeat, positive and gave great guidance throughout. Her instructions were clear and she gave feedback to everyone. I wasn’t sure how I would go with this but they have turned out great! The host also offered advice on maintaining them which I really appreciated. Thank you for a wonderful session!

Lovely relaxed beginners class. If we had class equipment requirements to set up before the class would have been preferable. I.e. water jugs, bowls, towel to clean hands, etc.

Carolyn Barrett Sep 2021

I thoroughly enjoyed the class & was very happy with the completed kokedama.
I think it would be an idea to include scissors, jug of water & bowls as suggested items to have on hand prior to class starting.

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.

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.

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.

Jenny Mar 2021

A very caring and competent instructor she did not at any time appear unprepared her class operated smoothly and ordered

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.
