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 two Kokedama moss balls. With a variety of succulents or seasonal indoor plants selected by your teacher on the day. The class will run for approx 1hr. This is a great value and easy to follow class.

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.

Chris from Merchant and Green was a wonderful communicator prior to the event (as we had to email him regarding updates with class sizes and times) and also during the class. He was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and supportive. We had 14 girls in the class for a Bridal shower and all of them had a blast and would not stop talking about Kokedamas when we left. The shop was also set up nicely (with many flowers and products to look at) and all materials (including bags to take the kokedamas home) were provided. Would be back for more of his classes - would definitely recommend.

We absolutely loved the Kokedama workshop with Merchant & Green. Chris was such a good teacher and we found the whole process of making the three kokedama so relaxing. They provided excellent materials and showed a variety of ways to make the kokedama. We also liked that they gave us a variety of plants. They have a lovely shop there on Bourke Street and it was great to learn a new skill! Highly recommend :)

Had an amazing time at this class with my mum and my nan (three generations make three Kokedama!). There was a great selection of plants available and I really enjoyed experimenting with three different sized Kokedama. Orla was a fantastic teacher and it was great to hear from Chris during the class as well! Pictured is an adorable photo of my nan with her little succulent Kokedama. Highly recommend this class!

I attended this course in yesterday with my daughter and I really enjoyed my time here it was such a great hands on course. The teacher was really knowledgeable, friendly and patient. Merchant and green was in a great easy to find location with plenty of parking in nearby streets. Such an amazing florist with some really beautiful products/ gift wear/gifts to purchase. I thought that the course was great value for money and am glad that I finally got to attend (covid made me postpone three times) I will even purchase an online course for my mum i enjoyed it so much. Would definitely recommend !

I did the Kokedama workshop on the 21st September at Merchant and Green Florist. It was a reasonable group of six persons surrounded with beautiful flowers and plants. An enjoyable and full of fun afternoon. The teacher (Orla) showed us how to make the Kokedama. And she patiently guided everyone of us to the end of the class, and answer any questions promptly.
I brought home different sizes of Kokedama with succulents and maiden hair.

My Mum, daughter and I loved this class. The teacher was very informative and gave very good instruction. The venue was easy to get to and lots of parking in nearby streets.

I got this workshop as a gift for my hubby who loves gardening and was looking to learn more about kokedama. Chris was our teacher. He was friendly and warm and a good instructor. The tasks were sequenced well, in increasing difficulty and we felt confident with each new task. The materials we used were of great quality and we got to take home the kokedama we created. We had guests over the next day and they were super impressed with our creations!
We really recommend this class!

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.

Karen Profilio Mar 2019

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!

This was an interesting class, something quite unique. Chris was very patient and showed and explained the technique well. Great choice of materials and good value. The venue is small but is great being surrounded by colourful, perfumed flowers, plants.

The kokedama class was awesome and very relaxing. The teacher was very comfortable to interact and chat with and very helpful. He made the class awesome and fun. Nothing was wrong about it. Thanks for an awesome experience.

The Kokedama class is a great workshop to be had with friends. Chris and the Merchant and Green team (thanks Chris & Georgia!) are very welcoming and friendly. Very good value, a great experience to laugh and relax and walk away with beautiful plants. Perfect for beginners and everything is provided. The Bondi location is a great location and beautiful store. Highly recommend!

Would this class be suitable for my 9 year old daughter?

Yes the class is suitable for your 9 year old, so you're both very welcome to join the class.
