Have fun and learn how to make your own DIY Kokedama to take home at this fun mobile workshop with Petali Australia!

Kokedama is a form of Japanese garden art that is centuries old and tied into the practice of bonsai. The idea has its origins in Japan, where it is a combination of the Nearai bonsai and Kusamono planting styles. Today, Kokedama is very popular for balcony gardens, indoor spaces and even make fabulous gifts.

This class is the perfect introduction for anyone wanting to have some hands-on experience working with Kokedama. This casual and fun workshop will teach you everything you need to know about how to make and care for your gorgeous Japanese moss ball.

Your teacher will give detailed demonstrations and will be on hand to answer any questions as you then create your own small and medium Kokedama plants to take home. During the class, you’ll have the chance to experiment and create using different succulents and indoor plants.

This fun, hands-on workshop is a perfect idea to gift to friends and family, for corporate team building activities or just to learn something new.

You will come away with two beautiful kokedama plants and an appreciation for this fun plant craft!

Evie was wonderful, early to set up and introduce herself and the workshop was a great way to unwind for the afternoon as a team. Evie was able to deliver the workshop onsite at our workplace. Definitely recommend.

Did this as an afternoon out with my bestie - we had a great time! a year on one of my kokedamas is still alive and going strong We had a hoot! I doubt you could buy two kokedama for the cost of the class.

Highly recommend booking this class. We booked as a fun, different thing to do for my Mum's birthday. Evie came to our home with all of the materials, we didn't have to do a thing except provide a space that would be suitable. We all enjoyed learning how to make kokedama's, getting our hands a bit dirty, and learning about how to look after these beautiful little plants from Evie. Super fun, easy, and interesting!

Evie was very accommodating even though we were running behind schedule. Very friendly too. Everyone who participated in the class thoroughly enjoyed the activity. The group have already mentioned that they would love to do some other classes, like the Terrarium workshop! Awesome experience! :)

Fantastic mother-son activity.
The place was welcoming and well set up for a small workshop.
Because of the small group size everyone had the opportunity to ask questions and get help.
Instructions were easy to follow and I loved the print out so we can give it another go at home.
Plant selection was good and the allocated time was perfect to create 2 pieces.
Wonderful way to bond with my 12-year old son.
