Tap into your green thumb and learn how to make Kokedama moss balls at this interactive plant workshop - a must do in Adelaide!

Kokedama - Japanese for moss ball, are sometimes known as 'poor man's bonsai'. Kokedama is the art of encasing the roots of plants in layers of special soil and moss, effectively making a ball at the base of the plant which can then be hung or placed on a saucer to display.

In recent years, Kokedama has become a fashionable way to display both indoor and outdoor plants, gracing the interiors of hip individuals and the windows of groovy cafes. More than that, Kokedama are great fun to make; and straightforward once you know the steps and materials involved. Made to this method, Kokedamas can thrive for years if maintained well.

In this hands-on workshop, you will learn how to create a kokedama using traditional Japanese methods - how they were made for centuries - so that your plants have every chance at success. All materials are provided along with notes, plus you will create two small Kokedamas to take home with you!
