Plant the seeds of creativity this Spring at Canberra Glassworks. 

Kokedama is a Japanese technique that consists in placing a plant into a soil ball, then covering it in moss and securing it with twine. Kokedama translates in Japanese
to ‘mossball’. Kokedamas are long lasting and low maintenance. 

Participants will work one by one with a teaching artist in the Hotshop, to create a glass base to keep and display their Kokedama. A teaching artist will gather molten glass and place it in a mould. Participants will press into the mould using a specially fabricated tool to shape the glass into form. You can choose to add colour to the glass base. 

Cost includes all the materials, tools and equipment you will need. 

Age: 14 years old +

Collection: Participants will be able to take their Kokedamas home on the day. The glass bases will need to anneal (cool down slowly) in a kiln for at least 24 hours. They will be available for collection 48 hours after the workshop finishes. 

Wear appropriate clothing. Fully closed shoes, long hair pulled back and preferably no synthetics.
