Sunday, August 9th | 12:30pm-1:30pm | Kokedama + Desserts!


Kokedama (Japanese for "moss ball") is a style of potting up plants in a ball of moss and displaying them in a dish or suspended in the air. Sometimes called the “Poor Man’s Bonsai” or “string gardens,” the art of binding plants into lush green, mossy spheres and exhibiting them dates back centuries to the Edo era in Japan (around 1600 AD). Kokedama have become incredibly popular due to their nearly self-sustaining nature. They just require some natural lighting and a once-a-week water dunk. Their space-saving qualities are another one of their appealing characteristics, as they make lovely hanging display pieces and free up your flooring and shelves. In this workshop, you will make your very own hanging Kokedama to take home with you. You will also learn how care for and sustain your Kokedama garden. 

Please note: No planter is required, as Kokedama use the moss that surrounds them to retain moisture as opposed to a pot. Types of plants available per class may vary, but all plants will be carefully selected and paired to best complement this type of environment. All materials are provided.

This class is appropriate for ages 14+.

This class will take place at Rochester Brainery, located at 176 Anderson Ave F109, Rochester NY 14607.
