Kokedama (苔玉, in English literally means "moss ball") is a ball of soil, covered with moss, in which an ornamental plant grows. The idea has its origins in Japan, where Kokedama are very popular.
This beautiful and unique form of art is often referred to as a poor man’s bonsai. However simple, the true beauty and unique display shines through, and this form of artistic planting has grown increasingly popular. Join us at Dundee Gardens for a class which will challenge conventional planting methods and give children the chance to use green, living materials to express their own artistic flare.
All materials will be provided, and students will have the opportunity to bring home their very own hanging Kokedama to display in their home.
