KOKEDAMA PLANT WORKSHOP

Send To Friend?

Instructor: Louis Riel School Division Instructor

Kokedama are small houseplants growing in a moss covered ball. This thousand-year-old Japanese tradition is very trendy right now. They can sit on decorative trays, or hang from a hook, and are then called "string gardens". Although pricey in florist shops, you can make one yourself for just a fraction of that cost, and once you learn how, you can make more. Plant, materials and simple container ideas will be provided. Lab fee $12, payable to instructor at class.
