Description


Learn the art of making unique Japanese inspired moss balls ifrom Sydney's highest rated Kokedama teachers.

Kokedama has been around for centuries. It's a variety of Bonsai, consisting of petite plants living off a ball of special soil and moss, bound by string. You can hang them, feature them in bowls, let them stand 'naked', or do something more creative!

Perfect for beginners and people who like to get closer to nature and get their hands dirty, as well as those looking for something different to do. The Merchant & Green team will make it easy for you to follow along, and you'll be amazed by what you create with your own two hands.

You will make a set of 3 Kokedama moss balls, 1x small, 1x medium and 1x large. Choosing from a variety of petite succulents and seasonal indoor plants.

At the end of the class you can take your new moss balls with you, to style in your home. They also make an original gift for someone special. A Merchant and Green care card and carry bag is included. They're easy to take care of, and will bring a nice touch of greenery into any space.

This class can also be customised to fit special events or occasions (where you're welcome to bring drinks and nibbles if you like), and we can also travel to your venue - just contact us. Group bookings 6-25 guests welcome.
Our Redfern studio can only comfortably fit up to 10 students, so larger classes will be held elsewhere (we can organise the venue, or we can use yours)

This was a relaxed and very pleasant way to spend an hour or two. Both my teenagers loved learning the traditional craft also. The wonderful staff made us adept so naturally. The outcomes are surprisingly something I am eager to hang in our home. Excellent value and I highly recommend the experience.

Today, I spent a very pleasant morning learning how to make Kokedama balls under the guidance of Chris (assisted by Orla). Chris, our friendly teacher made us feel welcome. His instructions were clear, he was patient, he provided assistance when needed and he was positive in his encouragement of our efforts. We ended the class having each made 3 respectable Kokedama balls and with enough knowledge to make more on our own. All up it was a fun workshop.

Enjoyed this workshop very much. The venue was beautiful and very conducive to working with plants, being surrounded by them and also beautiful flowers. The teacher was knowledgable and had a supportive, easy manner. Everyone in class achieved a great result and I was very happy with the three Kokodamas I bought home. The skills are something that I will be able to use again and again on my own, but we were given some insider hints that made the whole process much easier. It was a relaxed, but productive, way to spend a Saturday morning. A super successful workshop, thank you!

Located in a quiet and leafy street, this workshop was so much fun and set at a really leisurely pace. The morning didn't feel rushed and we were taught kokedama in a set of really easy to digest steps and were guided throughout the whole process. Ian always offered help or advice when we needed it and made it such a great experience. Would highly recommend!

I absolutely loved this class - was a Xmas present for my mum who loved it too! Great location (the florist is beautiful, loads of all day parking and a great cafe next door!), really friendly teachers, small class size. The Kokedama we made and took home are stunning (and worth more than the cost of the class if purchased from a florist!) and it was just SO MUCH FUN! Really really great morning!

This was my first Class Bento workshop. I totally loved that we jumped in straight away and made our first Kokedama.
Our hosts were so helpful and friendly that my nerves disappeared within minutes.
The venue was beautiful and relaxing.
I’ll be joining more workshops here in the future.
A perfect way to spend a weekend morning.

Chris and Mitch were so friendly and inviting - they were wonderful teachers and hosts for the night. The shop was a beautiful intimate space with lots of pots and plants that we couldn’t help but buy too! The class was lots of fun and even the most uncoordinated were able to get the hang of it! We all walked away very proud of our kokedamo creations. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a fun hands on experience.
