Kokedama workshop for beginners in Bangalore
November 24 | 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
In this workshop, you learn how to make beautiful Kokedamas, a living botanical statement piece that also serves as a meditative art. Kokedama is a Japanese art that literally translates to “moss ball”, and involves wrapping a plant with moss and suspending it with twine, on driftwood or just placing it in a ceramic or clay plate. Creating this living work of art can also be a meditative process that helps you practice mindfulness, or “being attentive at the moment”.
We will create a kokedama using ferns in this workshop, and all materials will be provided. You can take home your kokedama and either a clay plate or hanging material to display your work at your home or office!
