Kokedama is a style of simple Japanese Bonsai, where a plant’s root is wrapped in moss and bound by threads (“koke” means moss and “dama” means ball). This simple sculptural art form encapsulates the Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi, which is often defined as an appreciation of the imperfections of nature and the transience of natural beauty. This workshop includes a historical and cultural overview of the art form as well as guided instruction on how to create your own arrangement.
Participants, please bring the following materials to class:
- Ikebana scissors or garden scissors
- A plastic bowl of 5”-10” diameter (such as a small salad bowl or Tupperware container) to cut flower stems.
- A camera
