After the success of last year’s Kusamono workshop I am pleased to announce the first of 2 workshops in 2016. In an effort to further the knowledge and interest in kusamono I’m holding a workshop on Saturday 4th June starting at 1pm in Newtownards.
The session will look at accents in general and specifically kusamono, shitakusa and kokedama (mossballs). We will look at examples of kusamono, how they are displayed and how plantings work when displayed with bonsai. Participants will be able to select their own plants on the day, indeed the workshop cost of £30 includes 5 plants (to a max value of £25) from a large selection available! Can’t do better that that!! Feel free to bring your own plants to supplement your options and any pots you want to try. I will also have a selection of Magic Ceramic Pots available for anyone keen to add to their collection. One training tray will be supplied as part of the workshop with others available to purchase.
Last year we found participants also swapped and shared plants that were being split during planting, so you might go home with more than you bargained for.
The workshop open to all, tea and coffee available all afternoon, sign up via email@example.com for a fun informal session and walk away on the day with your own special creations.
Here are some photos from last years workshop.
