Kokedama String Garden Workshop
Come transform ordinary houseplants into Kokedamas, amazing self-contained moss ball sculptures. No plant pots needed- instead we’ll use a unique soil mixture, moss, and string! The arrangements can be displayed in variety of ways, such as hanging or in a dish. This is a style of Japanese bonsai that can be done with many different types of plants, including tropicals, succulents, herbs, and more.
In class you’ll learn how to construct them, and then create TWO medium sized Kokedamas using your choice of provided houseplants and string colors. You’ll also leave knowing the best practices for care and upkeep to keep your new string garden beautiful and healthy! All supplies and materials provided, including the plants!

Guest Teaching Artist:
Shaina Beeson is a concrete artist living in Portland, OR. In 2016, her passion for plants inspired her to start creating her own planters which has flourished into Pine District Botanicals. Taking the industrial side of concrete and pairing it with pops of color are what drives her creativity into creating her unique treasures. She believes plants promote healing properties and encourages everyone to bring nature inside, whether it’s with one houseplant or ten!
