Garden Art: Create Your Own Beautiful Kokedama

  • Thomas Deans Fine Art 690 Miami Circle #905 Atlanta, Georgia 30324 USA (map)

Would you like to get your hands dirty as you make kokedama to add a little green to your home? But, first, you likely want to know what in the world kokedama is, right?

Kokedama is an ancient Japanese technique (meaning moss ball), where a plant’s root system is bound with moss and string, transforming it into a mini work of art. Join Ladies Who Learn for an interactive class taught by Terry Furuta as she teaches us how to make our own kokedama and how to incorporate the Japanese “Wabi-Sabi” principle of embracing imperfection, impermanence and awareness of natural beauty into your everyday life. This style is perfect for succulents and adds aesthetic to your home or workspace.

Ideal for…
