What is Kokedama?

Kokedama string garden

Kokedama is the Japanese art of creating string gardens.

Back by popular demand, we are adding a second Kokedama workshop. Very simply, Kokedama means “moss ball”.  The roots of small houseplants are surrounded in a special combination of soil, an outer layer of moss, and then wrapped with string.  A string garden can be hung individually or in a grouping.  Place them in a window or in a corner of a room.  Give as a gift to yourself or someone else!

Our designers will guide you in this creative workshop.  Each participant will get to make string garden to hang in a bright window of their home.  You will select your plant and learn the steps to wrapping the plant’s roots in string.  We will discuss proper care instructions and ways to  embellish your string garden with beads and decor (Feel free to bring your own beads from home as they may not be supplied).

We will also have the individual supplies for you to purchase so that you can create more string gardens at home.

COST: $20 per string garden – includes all materials and instruction.
Date: Sunday, March 6     Time: 1pm – 3pm

Please call to register for workshop at 815-895-3737.

Below is a sampled gallery of images that capture the possibilities of this ancient and fascinating craft.
