Join us to learn how to build 2 of your own Ivy and Fern Kokedama at Lumberjack Cafe, Camberwell.
Join us to learn how to create 2 of your own unique Japanese hanging plant arrangements. 'Kokedama' translates from the Japanese words for moss ('koke') and ball ('dama') - it is the art of freeing the plant from a container and planting it in a moss covered soil/clay ball. Kokedama evolved from the art of Bonsai - carefully made to brighten up Japanese homes, with people commonly creating 'string gardens' in which hanging Kokedama beautifully fill an empty space of a room. Kokedama are viewed as living art, with every one having the potential to be a completely unique creation . Kokedama also have a practicality to them as the external moss has the advantage of acting as a sponge, which you can dip in water every week and it will slowly release water to the roots of your plant
Jar and Fern will provide all the information and equipment you need to make your own hanging Kokedama, using Asparagus Fern and Hedera Ivy as well as instruction on how you can make many more in the future - they make great gifts! This is a great individual or group experience for anyone who wants to learn some new indoor gardening skills. You will leave with a care guide for your Kokedama's and a neat green bag to carry it home in.
We will be hosting this event in the lovely, planty and peaceful basement area at Lumberjack cafe in Camberwell.
Dimensions - You can choose the size of your Kokedama, but it will be roughly 10-20cm in diameter
Light - These enjoy a spot with indirect sunlight e.g. a North-facing window
Watering - Once a week
