Kokedama Workshop

Make an ornamental Japanese moss ball plant in Sydney



1.5 hours Class size 1 to 20 (public classes), 12 to 60

label $60 - $70 ($70 per guest when you book for 1 guest, $60 for 2+ guests)

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!

Please note: Public dates for this class require at least 5 guests to run. In the unlikely event that we don't reach this number, we'll cancel the class; in this case we'll inform you and allow you to get a refund or reschedule, so please watch your email/SMS one day prior to the class.



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!
Suitable for

This class is perfect for beginners - no prior experience is needed.

This class is great for individuals and couples as well as for a team building activity, birthday, hens party or bucks party.

This would also be a nice gift for her or gift for mum.

My friend and I had a relaxing time in the kokedama workshop. The teacher was helpful and friendly. The venue had plenty of street parking. I liked being able to use my hands to make something. I would definitely recommend this class to friends and family.

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 :)

The teacher was really good, super patience and a great Dj worth saying!
The instructions were clear and the ambient and atmosphere was really smooth and peaceful. Everything you'll expect for a Kokedama workshop.

Cassandra Faro-Borg May 2021


This class was great! So fun and chilled. The teacher was so friendly and loved to have a chat and get to know everyone (we did have a small class, so made it easier to chat to him).
Would definitely do the class again or other classes they run.

Reece Plunkett Feb 2021


Good, clear instructions. Good quality supplies. Friendly teacher.

Could probably make the class shorter as we all finished well before time.

Lucinda Chan Jan 2021


Very welcoming and wandered around to help during the class. Plenty of time available to complete the Kokedama and enjoy each other's company over a glass of wine.
