Kokedama is Japanese for “moss ball” and is a style of potting 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 A.D.). Kokedama have become incredibly popular due to their nearly self-sustaining nature, and their space-saving qualities are another one of their appealing characteristics — they make lovely hanging display pieces and free up your flooring and shelves! In this workshop, students will make their very own hanging Kokedama as well as learn how to care for and sustain their garden.
