Kokedamas? … no dramas
Learn to make a Kokedama in a class at the Perth Craft & Quilt Fair, on one day only, Saturday May 26 at 10am.
What is Kokedama anyway?
These cool hanging plants are a Japanese art form, meaning moss ball. They’re a hanging plant but the container is made of moss rather than a pot, and the moss ball is then wrapped in twine. Colourful twines and strings can be used making them look funky and decorative. And you don’t have to hang them – they can line up on a shelf and sit pretty too!
Kokedama is a cool decorative accent and a way to bring the garden indoors, particularly in small spaces where potted plants aren’t practical. Succulents and ferns are good candidates for this craze. Creating them doesn’t take a long but there are a few handy tips and tricks that make it easier.
At several recent craft events, we’ve been running classes on this cool garden craft. West Australian’s can book in now to the Kokedama Studio Class here, as well as painting, dream catchers and candle making.
If you’re in Queensland, join a kokedama class at the Brisbane Stitches & Craft Show, book here.
Don’t they look cool dressed up in coloured string!
And while we’re talking about garden craft, have you noticed how popular that 70s classic – the terrarium – has become?
At the Brisbane Stitches & Craft Show visitors can make a terrarium and a kokedama with Elise Rosen in a Studio class.
