The Makers, Cara and Danielle, started making kokedamas for a bit of fun, they loved it so much it was decided they needed to share them so they could continue to make and create happy mossy balls. What started out as a lot of plants and a close-knit friendship quickly grew into Girls Gone Koko.

苔玉 Kokedama: Moss Ball

The mossy balls originating in Japan reflect the aesthetic principle of wabi-sabi, a Taoistic form of appreciation for the wonder that is nature. Translated, wabi-sabi is admiring and embracing the wildness, the irregularity, the incompleteness as well the simplicity of living.

One can easily understand how the girls went crazy over these amazing, fun and beautiful kokedamas. Foremost, by what they represent. These plants are not only naturally beautiful, made from sustainable materials and extremely versatile as home decor but also functional. Plants serve as air purifiers, improving your health with increased oxygen levels and thereby increase your productivity.

With Danielle finishing her Diploma in early childhood and Cara with a BA Education and certificate IV in Training and Assessment the natural next step for the girls was to open their workshop to the public to teach people how to make their own kokedamas.

Your Kokedamas will look amazing anywhere, from your office to your bathroom, in a pot, hung or many together as a living art installation. Girls Gone Koko hope these cute balls of moss with their eclectic style and individuality will grow on you and nourish your soul.

The teachers were knowledgeable, friendly and funny. I appreciated the message prior to the class suggesting I bring a coat as it was a cold Melbourne day. All the materials were provided and as much help as needed to produce 2 Kokedama.

My partner and I had never made Kokedamas before until this class. Cara and Dani were friendly and gave good instruction in order for us to make them ourselves. Was good fun and we got to go home with two of our very own kokedamas. All materials provided as well so was great value for money spent.
Keen to also try their terrarium making class next! Thanks ladies!

Cara and Danielle were warm, welcoming and fun. Although the space was a little crowded, we had a lot of "artistic" choice and licence to make it our own.
Great demonstrations and help throughout. Would highly recommend this class.
