Art of Kokedamas Workshop

$107

with Grace Viola-Pearson

Calendar Aug 10, 2022 at 6 pm

Ages 16 - Adult

This two-hour course will teach the steps used to create beautiful and sustainable live kokedamas plants for the home or office.  The class will discuss the soils used, proper mixing techniques and then move into how to place the plant within the soil and then cover with dried moss, as you use decorative string to hold it together.  Once the kokedamas is complete, it will be decorated using a wide variety of accents, colors, and ideas to make this living work of art an expression of each student's character and inner beauty.  Along with this, the class will discuss proper care and handling of the plant and a quick history of the techniques used and where they originate from.
