Creating Kokedama: A Drop-in Mini Workshop (150-05-12-18)
Saturday, May 12, 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
Laura Vogel, Adult Education Programs Manager, Minnesota Landscape Arboretum
Are you interested in enhancing your “Origami in the Garden” experience? Drop by the Great Hall Balcony on select Saturday afternoons for a mini workshop! Kokedama is a Japanese variant of bonsai, in which live moss is essentially used as a container for another plant. These moss balls can hold many types of houseplants, from ferns to orchids. They are equally beautiful displayed on a table or suspended by your window and are easy to care for. Join Arboretum staff to learn more about this unique display technique, and then follow along step-by-step in creating your own kokedama to take home. The drop-in workshop will take a half hour or less and you can arrive anytime within the time frames listed below; $15 fee per ~4" kokedama and includes a helpful care sheet.
