The Bubble Room presents The Kokedama Workshop on demand (the previous one was sold out).
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 Fishtail Fern kokedama and either a clay plate or hanging material to display your work at your home or office!
What you will learn:
1. What is a kokedama
2. How to select soil medium for your plant
3. How to wrap your plant with moss
4. Twining your kokedama with Jute
5. Decor ideas using kokedamas
6. Maintaining your kokedama
4. Cotton thread
5. Jute twine
6. Gloves and buckets
Once you learn how to make a kokedama using a fern, you can experiment with different plants, twining methods, and decor styles. Kokedamas are thoughtful gifts and classy home decor.

About Meghana: I am a product manager by profession and a plant-mama by interest and love. I started making and selling kokedamas in February after months of experimentation, in order to be able to share a piece of nature with people who are increasingly grappling with space constraints and stressful lives.
Making kokedamas has helped me relax, practice mindfulness and meet like-minded plant enthusiasts. This workshop will help me share this art and the joy it brings with more people.
