Workshop / Kokedama


Kokedama 苔玉 is a Japanese form of bonsai that involves binding a plants roots in a ball of soil covered in moss. We first began making kokedama in 2016 and spent a year perfecting the technique. Our kokedama are made using the traditional method with a special mix of akadama soil that will hold its shape and will last for many many years when cared for correctly. Kokedama can be hung or placed on a table top in a saucer or dish. 

The workshop includes all of the materials needed to make one kokedama ball, step by step instruction, and a detailed care guide. In this workshop we'll be making a maranta leuconeura 'red' kokedama- commonly known as the red "prayer plant". They were given the name prayer plant because the leaves move throughout the day and close up at night like little hands! Prayer plants require medium to bright indirect light and we have found prayer plant kokedama need to be watered around once a week. 

The workshop takes around an hour to complete. Please be on time! Entry will not be permitted past 15 minutes after the start of the workshop. All workshop sales are final. Any cancellations must be submitted at least 48 hours prior to the workshop date to receive credit towards a future workshop.  

Making a kokedama is similar to making a mud pie so wear something you wouldn't mind getting dirty!
