Not having the materials to hand makes things so much harder to do! So why not join us for this one day combined course where everything is at your fingertips and try your hand at making delightful Kokedama in the morning and planting the perfect terrarium in the afternoon.

Kokedama is the Japanese art of combining plants, earth and moss to create whimsical, living spheres of green which look great when suspended in groups. In contrast, a terrarium acts as a miniature microclimate and garden and can provide an excellent element of biophilia for small spaces.

Students will be invited to choose from a selection of suitable plants to use in their Kokedama creations and will learn how to carefully assemble and string the ball ensuring the plant remains in optimum health once hung from a ceiling. Later on students will learn the best way to assemble their own terrarium using a selection of green plants, learning how to care for and sustain the min environment.

No experience necessary – just enthusiasm and green fingers!

Our View

We believe that in this day and age, many floristry schools do not offer proper help and guidance that their students deserve. Due to their inadequate and outdated teaching standards, a large majority of students are left behind without the necessary skills and tuition. Their classes don’t guide the student well enough for creativity or freedom to bloom. We only aim to give our best to every and all students, who walk through our doors. Beginner or experienced, we will guide you into exploring your imagination and bringing it to fruition. This means expert floristry tutors, vast resources and materials, an insight into our unique styles of work and the ability to work independently and professionally.

Our Drive

Here at Orchidya, we understand the minds of the students. What we teach is the student to become independent and hone their creative minds. To understand that anything is and can become a concept. We welcome ideas no matter how creative and unique, what we expect is that the student will use their taught skills and experiences to create masterpieces in their own name of what they see. Art is not defined nor set, it is constantly moving and progressing, made by you, envisioned by you. A leaf off the ground, a twig, this is all up to your imagination, anything can be used to create your final designs.
