  • If you're not fully COVID-19 vaccinated, you'll need to wait for the government to announce the re-opening date for unvaccinated people

Join Lilian in the Macedon Ranges and learn how to make stunning live Kokedamas using two different methods.

In this beginner-friendly class, you will learn about the materials that are required, how to make up the potting mix and the role that the different substrates have in ensuring that your plant thrives for years to come.

Kokedama which translates from Japanese to mean "Moss Ball" was formed from the gardening styles of Bonsai and Kusamono, these have then been further developed to be wrapped in twine as a way of stabilising the plant for display and to allow the Kokedama to deal with the warmer temperatures found in our region.

Lillian specialises in creating symmetrical and neat string work and this is a focus of the class, ensuring you come away with two Kokedamas that you are proud to display in your home!



Knowledge required
Perfect for beginners.
 
What you'll get
  • A small and medium Kokedama to take home
  • Two different techniques to continue creating them at home
  • Tips and tricks to neat twining techniques
  • Instructions and care guides to make your new plants last years!
What to bring
Please wear closed-toe shoes and have long hair tied back.

Friendly, chatty instructor, she was great.
This class was lots of fun, clear instructions, and plenty of time to make the two kokodama.
