Kokedama is a Japanese plant craft using moss, clay, soil and yarn. But if you don't have the materials, can you still learn the craft? You can with us!

In this pre-recorded class, you'll learn how to make a Kokedama with whatever scraps you can find in the house. We still have so much science to learn from our everyday items.

The Kokedama will still turn out cute. Will it last? Well, that's a question for science. That's why we experiment. Regardless, we'll learn the basic technique and the science too.

These indoor activities are a great option if you're feeling bored at home during lockdown. Get your friends and family to join you on Zoom and enjoy this activity at your own pace, perfect for a casual get together, birthday parties, team building activities and more!


Knowledge required
Beginner-friendly.
 
What to bring
  • Small plant (or fake plant!).
  • Soil (even if it's a small pot of soil left behind when the plant your coworker gave you died).
  • Sphagnum moss (or a few large squares of old cotton fabric. Think about what you are culling from your cupboard that really isn't suitable to donate).
  • A small amount of clay (but this is not imperative this time around).
  • Cotton yarn or Jute twine (or an old T-shirt *).

*you'll see the required PDF after booking that'll show you how to make yarn from a T-shirt.
Suitable for

This is a fun indoor activity, suitable for adults, and kids (minimum 8 years old). Adult accompaniment is not required.

This would also be a lovely gift for her, gift for mum or Xmas gift.

Sciren offers science-based workshops by teaching science 'secretly' while we craft and chat. We want everyone to understand science, sometimes the science needs translating. We use craft and hands-on workshops to help you learn.

As a plant biotechnologist, I've gone through the education system to find I needed better ways to learn. I kept seeing crafty hobbies as distractions to my learning. Until I realised they were the perfect vehicle to my learning. Making jam - learn about plant cell walls and pectin. Making a terrarium - learn about greenhouse food production and climate change... it's so much more fun being immersed in learning this way!

We'll help you understand the world we live in by using our passion and knowledge, while we chat and have fun.
