1.5 hours Class size 1 to 18 (public classes), 10 to 20

label $70 - $75 ($75 per guest when you book for 1 guest, $70 for 2+ guests)

Want to learn how to make your own DIY Kokedamas? Join Bella at Work-Shop and learn some nifty new gardening skills!

During the workshop, Bella will introduce you to a number of species of succulents and indoor plants from our wide local selection use for your Kokedamas. She will then teach you how to create mixtures and mediums for succulents and indoor plants so they are successful in your kokedama.

Each step in the Kokedama making process will be taught and demonstrated, so you learn all the techniques from weaving to creating neat twine.

By going through these key processes you will be equipped with the tools to create your own Kokedamas with various styles at home easily and keep them healthy seasonally and long term.

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class.

North Queenslander’s turned city folk, Bella is passionate about greenery. Bella was raised in a family where gardening is a way of live. If she wasn’t visiting her grandmothers water lily farm or pottering around her dads bonsai collection, she was out in the hills of North Queensland discovering new places and photographing moss ( yes moss! ). Bella works and lives by Greenery, constantly bringing nature into the urban landscape.

Kokedama Workshop for Beginners review by Tara Alexander

Claudia Lima Mar 2022


I would like to have the option to make a medium size kokedama instead of two very small ones. However, the class was entertained and Bella seemed to be very knowledgeable about plants.

Sarah Williams Mar 2022

Bella explained techniques very well. Her voice projected well and she identified problems quickly and was very supportive without being condescending. Information given was detailed enough for me to feel confident creating my own projects.

Bella was delightful and super helpful. It was easy to follow, and she was patient and ensured we were all at the same stage before we progressed. Bella also provided a lot of great information, hints and tips.

Traci Milner Feb 2020


I think for the amount of money i paid for the workshop the plants could have been abit more substantial and more interesting than the small assorted ferns provided. That is my only review on the workshop. The teacher was good she was quirky, supplies were ok not great but ok. Venue was good. Parking was good. Macrame was good enjoyed that the most.

Naomi Eichenlaub Feb 2020


Great venue, great teacher, nice relaxed environment. Thanks for a lovely workshop with a super product!
