Join us in person for “Playing with Dirt: The Art of Kokedama” on Wednesday, May 18 at 1 PM in the Community Conference Center.

Are you ready to get your hands dirty? The result will be worth it. In this fun and interactive program led master flower show judge and expert florist Emily Bader, you’ll learn how to take a mud ball and turn it into a beautiful moss and flower-covered sphere. Kokedama is a Japanese garden art that may be placed on a platform or suspended from a string with the plant. Not only will you learn how to make this charming and clever piece of art, in the process, but Bader will also teach you about the history of the ancient practice of Bonsai.

By participating in this session, you can expect to:

  • learn a little about the practice of Bonsai.
  • create a unique gift for a friend.
  • experience a clever family fun activity.

Special Instructions: This program’s fee covers the supplemental materials provided to attendees. However, participants are encouraged to bring their own scissors, gloves and a bucket.

This program is presented by Emily Bader and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
