Kokedama Workshop

Learn how to make a hanging string garden in Redfern



2 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 string garden 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 hanging Kokedama’s to take home. Bring a mate (or a date) and score ten bucks off each ticket!

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.



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



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 a great indoor activity idea for individuals and couples as well as for a birthday, hens party, team building activity, corporate event, bucks party or Christmas party.

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

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 :)

Pedro Soler May 2021


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.

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.
