Kokedama Workshop

Make an ornamental Japanese moss ball plant in Sydney



1.5 hours Class size 12 to 60     label $60

Kokedamas, an alternative version of the bonsai, originated in Japan in the 1600s. A technique of planting where the roots and soil are wrapped in a ball of moss and decoratively bound by string to hold everything together.

Besides hanging from a string, these moss balls can be placed on decorative plates to be used as feature pieces. They are a breeze to dress up for special events and also make fantastic gifts!

In this workshop, you’ll learn the basics of how to make a Kokedama,  including how to mix your own soil, moss cultivation, plant selection, and care to ensure your mossy-ball survives and thrives. We’ll provide a selection of different plants and succulents for you to create your very own masterpiece.

You’ll get to make two of your own unique Kokedama moss balls to take home. Bring a mate (or a date) and score ten bucks off each ticket!


What you'll get
  • Knowledge on how to make a good-looking, healthy and long-lasting kokedama!
  • Special soil
  • A selection of plants
  • Twine
  • Two Kokedamas to take home
What to bring
  • A bag to transport your kokedama home
  • Enthusiasm and zest for learning!

What a wonderful class. So much fun, wonderful teacher and a great little bunch of people. The small class was great and allowed for questions and casual conversation. Highly recommend! So many people have commented on the wonderful Kokedama I made and I'm so glad to have this new skill. Such an easy and thoughtful gift when you know how.

It was great to make some new memories with my partner and I in the workshop with Chet. He was personable, told some great stories and great to chat to throughout. We met some new friends and walked away with a new skill that will do time and time again.

Chet was a friendly and informative teacher who lead us through a creative class in Kokedama making. He explained and demonstrated the process clearly and provided great advice on materials, plants and maintenance to keep our plants thriving. It was a great class to do as a fun activity with my step mum and sister. A lovely experience!

Chet (?) Was our teacher and he was very friendly and relaxed. The workshop itself was a bright open space that was well seasoned.
The activity was fun and realtively simple. Great soundtrack playing on the background which added to the vibe.
The only constructive comment is that it wasn't a full 2 hours workshop so perhaps modify that.
Loved it!

We had a really fun morning with Chet at the kokedama class! It was easy enough for anyone but still took a bit of elbow grease, and we left with some beautiful keepsakes and a new skill. Huge thanks from my dad and I :)
