With the vast majority of the people in our society working tirelessly, we often forget to be creative and pursue activities that are slow-paced and simpler.
Humans have an innate need to connect with other living things such as animals and plants; and closeness to nature is known to be beneficial for our well-being as the hobby of tending to plants creates feelings of calmness, contentment and a sense of comfort.
Originated in Japan, a Kokedama (translated as a ball of moss) is a popular ancient Japanese gardening display of houseplants. It is believed to be a form of bonsai called ne-arai (pronounced neh-ah-rye), which translates to washed roots.
Some pots for bonsai can cost a fortune and are more expensive than plants themselves. These potless plants are a reflection of the Japanese aesthetic of Wabi-sabi, which promotes the appreciation of the imperfections of nature. This Japanese philosophy entails simplicity, warmth, earthy, irregularity, roughness, naturalness, acceptance and judgment-free observation -- which is what Kokedama is all about.
With that, Kokedama was brought to life with the intention of encouraging people to pick up simple gardening skills and enjoy the peacefulness that greenery naturally brings into our everyday lives.
Escape from the bustling city and immerse yourself in an urban garden, located in the heart of the city at Orchard Road. With little creativity and passion, you can transform your house into a green sanctuary with Kokedamas.
During the workshop, you will be guided step-by-step by our trained instructors on how to create a Kokedama of your choice from the variety of plants we have in-house. All materials will be provided during the session.
The workshop is best for anyone who wants a stress release, couples, friends, family bonding and corporate team building. It is open to all - regardless of age (above 7 years old), art knowledge or experience.
What you will get at the end of the session:
One Kokedama with plant of your choice
