You may well be wondering what on earth is a Kokedama? Which is a fair point as the name is not a mainstream term...YET! It's the ancient art form of creating a traditional Japanese hanging garden and the latest botanical craze, currently sweeping LA and Sydney following on from the 2018 botanical trend and all round obsession with terrariums! “Kokedama” is a Japanese word which literally translated means moss ball. Using traditional wrapping techniques and soil combinations we teach you the skills required to create these wonderful pot-less hanging plants. Not only does a Kokedama look amazing but they are really low maintenance and so much fun to make, we think once you see one you will just love them!  In this hands-on workshop you can create your own stylish urban oasis. During the botanical workshop you'll create three different types of Kokedamas from tropical plants of your choosing and learn best practices for plant care and upkeep to keep your new string garden beautiful and healthy, all while enjoying complimentary sake, bubbly and East Asian inspired nibbles. A Kokedama workshop provides an opportunity to learn a new skill and **connect with nature in a creative way, through an experience that is both playful and relaxing. With many Londoners not having outdoor space, attending a Kokedama workshop provides the perfect opportunity to get stuck into nature and leave with a beautiful new hanging garden that means you can bring the outside inside in your home as well. Your teacher Hayley, is an experienced set designer and interior stylist for the film and advertising industry and can offer lots of tips on how to present your Kokedamas in your home. We offer different coloured strings and twine as well as a range of plants to choose from, so that everyone can create something truly unique and express their own sense of creativity. The Venue The workshop will take place in a hidden, heated and covered garden, housed at the back of the jewellery store Kas & Ros right by the iconic Tower Bridge, with tube stations, Borough, London Bridge both nearby . The magical garden space, is decorated particularly for the event, so expect to see lots of examples of what you can create. This is an example of what you should expect to learn at a workshop: - An introduction to the tradition of Kokedama making - Choose three tropical house plants from a wide selection of plant variations - Prepare your own soil mixture - Learn the basic method for the moss ball - Create your first Kokedama using the sheet moss technique - Choose from a range of coloured twines - Learn and perfect the skill of the Kokedama wrapping technique and make a different style of Kokedama - Create two more Kokedamas in colours and styles of your choosing - Create string supports to hang your garden - Learn about upkeep and how to maintain and display your new garden - All the while enjoying some nibbles and bubbly (served with good ol’ Irish Hospitality;) )

Modern Calligraphy has exploded over the past decade as a great creative craft to learn and develop at home from the comfort of your sofa, with little mess and a selection of simple tools. Pioneered by budding brides-to-be, Calligraphy has become one of the most sort after finishing touches decorating invitations and name cards adding that extra flare to the day, OR the crafty individual who likes to send and decorate cards for all occasions and a bit of a stationary geek (like me!). But where to start.... In this beginners modern calligraphy class your teacher, lettering artist and illustrator Eleanor Herring, will start by introducing you to the tools of the trade (which are yours to take away at the end of the class!) discussing materials, styles and the correct way to place the nib to paper, how to make your ink flow, as well as after care of all the materials. The class will then dive straight into practicing basic calligraphy exercises making shapes and strokes with traditional black inks and flexible nibs, before moving on to lower and uppercase letter forms, with a dash of flourishing a long the way. By the end of the class you will have started to create joined-up words in your own style, with plenty of time to practice and one-to-one help. Each class is tailored to the individual and core needs of the group and what they would like to work on.

BYOB Ultimate Pottery Experience

Great experience!! From beginning to end, get to make your own clay pot and paint it, as well as pick something already made to paint! - very relaxing, friendly atmosphere. The teacher is lovely, chatty, helpful and welcoming! We were running a bit late so emailed beforehand to which we got a quick reply saying it was fine! Would definitely recommend to others! To do with a friend or a group of friends who want to try something new, or just have a relaxed evening! Thanks again

North London Pottery Workshop

Absolutely amazing, so glad I chose to do this with Sampada. She was really friendly and helpful. Small classes in a lovely studio overlooking the canal. 3 hours is the perfect amount of time, any less would have been way to rushed. Can make mugs/plates/bowls/models or whatever you want. Thanks so much!
