About the event

Bring your kiddos in to create their very own Kokedama! They will get their hands dirty and create their very own plant in a moss ball! 

Kokedama, translated as 'moss ball', has its origins in Japan where they have been most popular as part of an art tradition and philosophy called 'Wabi-Sabi'. – which is the art of appreciating beauty in the world's natural imperfection.

In this workshop you will choose a live plant of your choice and create your very own Kokedama moss balll. We will guide you every step of the way, educate you on how to maintain and take care of your new Kokedama and give you a little backround information on how Kokedama originated. Plus, you will learn the benefits of getting your hands in dirt and working with plants, all while supporting your mental health.

All supplies are included. Be prepared to get your hands DIRTY!

Fun Facts & History about Kokedama:

The concept of Kokedama began as a way for Japanese people to stay connected to the forest while living in the city. The lack of man-made pots surrounding the plant mimics the natural environments in which plants grow and embodies the idea of mother nature being self-sufficient.

According to the Japanese, the green ball of moss is translated as maternal love and charity. The spherical shape of the ball is believed to add credence to the plant’s naturality while creating peacefulness and the Zen spirit.

Using Kokedama is also a practice that supports sustainability. The elimination of plastic flower pots, which is now replaced with moss balls, is an eco-friendly attribute that translates to less plastic use. Even decorative twines used to wrap the moss balls are biodegradable making it more sustainable.

We will assist your kiddos in making their very own Kokedama! We will also be sure to teach you how to take care of their new plant to set them up for success!
