Mindful Kokedama Making
Mindfulness isn’t just about meditation. If you love to work with your hands, you can learn about mindfulness by getting crafty! Kokedama is an ancient Japanese technique, (meaning moss ball), where a plant’s root system is bound with moss and string, transforming it into a mini art form.
You’ll get to immerse yourself in mindful making by learning all about kokedama and how to make your own in this guided two-hour workshop with Hilary Woodfine of Tiny Paradise. She’ll take you step-by-step in how to make your own kokedama and how to incorporate the Japanese Wabi-Sabi principle of embracing imperfection, impermanence and awareness of natural beauty into your everyday life.
