Passionate about growing things, she has also studied plant science and worked in nurseries. She sells concrete planters and other “nature art” through her store, Tasi Masi (tasimasi.bigcartel.com), and also loves doing lots of other crafty things, which you can see on her blog, givemakewrap.com.

Originating in Japan, kokedama are living plant and moss balls. Traditionally displayed sitting, they also look magical bound up with string and hanging. Similar to bonsai, they are a lovely way to bring a bit of greenery indoors and can live for years.
In this hands-on workshop you’ll have access to all the materials needed to make your own beautiful kokedama and will be taken step by step through the unique process. Everyone will make two kokedama to take home with them at the end of the night.
