Kokedama is a Japanese technique of placing a plant into a soil ball, covering it in moss and securing it with twine. Kokedama translates in Japanese to ‘mossball’ (Koke=moss & Dama=ball).

Kokedama are a unique, long lasting and low maintenance living gift. Kokedama make a great decorative piece for your home or office either hanging or placed on a stand. Kokedama are especially useful for apartment dwellers with no garden as they take up very little space and bring a bit of greenery to your apartment balcony.

In this workshop, Jacqui will show you step-by-step how to make your very own Kokedamas.

Presenter Bio

Jacqui King

“By day I work in administration and in my spare time it’s all about Kokedama!

I stumbled across Kokedama through social media a couple of years ago and it was love at first sight. At that time I started making Kokedama for myself plus for family, friends and work colleagues. I then launched my own social media pages and my backyard hobby made its official public debut. Interest grew quickly and before I knew it I was making Kokedama custom orders, selling at markets and running workshops.

I love talking about Kokedama and teaching the art of Kokedama making. I love connecting with others through an interest in plants, craft and learning how to make Kokedama.”
