Kokedama Workshop

Preparations are underway for my Kokedama Workshop next week. I was asked by my garden club to design, and host a workshop (of my choosing) for their February meeting. Who doesn't love having total creative freedom? This design above would be perfect for St. Patricks Day.

Kokedama is a Japanese art form along with Ikebana and Bonsai. I learned how to design in the style of Ikebana back in floral school.

Kokedama designs can be displayed by suspending them with string or twine. Varieties of mosses are used to hold in the soil, and provide moisture. I love MOSS, as it is such a versatile design tool that is both practical and beautiful.
