Workshop with Kent Florist
Learn the art of Japanese floristry while sampling some sweets.
May 08, 2017
Launch into your weekend with some dirty work with Kent Florist The florist hosts a plant-oriented workshop every saturday. It could be ikebana, mini cactus garden making or DIY kokedama — that's Japanese for moss balls. Literally. But they're more appealing than this direct translation might suggest. The moss is the basis of a mini, hanging pot plant, featuring your favourite succulent, fern or the like. At the workshop, you'll learn the history of kokedama while making two of your own. Everything you need for each of the workshops is provided and you'll be sipping green tea and sampling Japanese sweets while you work. Book online in advance, and don't forget an apron to avoid post-plant grubbiness.
