WHEN? Wednesday 6th November // 6pm – 9:30pm

WHERE? Black Swan Arts Centre, 2 Bridge Street, Frome, BA11 1BB

TICKETS: £40/£35

Come and get creative and learn the art of kokedama with Lula from Pilea Plant shop.

A variant of bonsai, kokedama is the Japanese art of creating pot-less plants using a unique soil mixture, moss and string.

The workshop covers the history and origins of kokedama, plant and soil mixtures, wrapping options, moss types and aftercare. You get to create your own Japanese kokedama moss ball, combining the grounding practice of getting your hands dirty with natural materials, and the artistic gratification of creating a beautiful object.

Participants will receive full tuition so you don’t need any experience. All levels of ability are welcome. Not only will you walk away with your very own handmade kokedama, you will also have the skills and information to care for it at home.

Supper is provided by the Black Swan Cafe team and is included in the ticket price, along with all materials.

“I focus on providing beautiful and more unusual houseplants. It’s really important to me to provide as much information as I can about the plants so that customers feel confident taking a plant home and nurturing it. I hold plant themed creative workshops in and around the Bath and Frome area. I also offer personal houseplant consultations to homes and offices on which houseplants will work well in a space. These consultations also consider a buyer’s lifestyle and commitment in choosing plants that will really suit them.”
