Join us to fill your senses with nature at our Kokedama and Smudge Stick Making Workshop in the peaceful surround of our studio’s walled courtyard garden at Caherlag House in Glanmire.
The ritual of burning plants selected for their medicinal and therapeutic properties, known as Smudging, has been practiced for centuries.
Using a variety of plants and flowers, selected for their medicinal properties and wonderful fragrances, we will get started by creating our own smudge sticks whilst learning about the ancient practice, it’s benefits and uses.
Next, you will enjoy getting your hands in some soil as you learn the technique of Kokedama, the Japanese answer to a hanging basket. Translated as “moss ball”, Kokedama are both functional and beautiful in their natural simplicity. We will encase the root balls of luscious ferns in a special soil mix, before wrapping them in fresh moss and securing with twine.
Whether you choose to enjoy indoors or out, display hanging or sat on a table, we think Kokedama look especially beautiful when grouped together and so for this workshop you will create two to take home!
Dressing in layers is always a good idea as our workshops are held in our outdoor purpose built pergola. Flooded with natural light, yet still providing lots of fresh air and ventilation, it’s an ideal activity and space.
Spaces are limited to ensure quality 1-1 support and instruction for everyone as needed.
Whether you come on your own or with another nature lover, we guarantee a relaxed and fun afternoon filling your senses.
