Make your own

Friday, 5th August, 5-6pm

Kokedama is a traditional Japanese style of planting indoor and outdoor plants in a moss-ball (not in a planter or pot). Kokedama master Chika Crooks will take you through simple steps on how to make Kokedama. By the end of session you’ll have created your own Kokedama which you can take home with a ceramic plate. Once you are understand the process of making Kokedama, you’ll soon be able to master different variations by yourself at home.  


How to make

Saturday, 6th August, 4-5pm

Macrame has become popular over the past few years, it looks great in all sorts of settings and is a fantastic way of displaying your plants. What a lot of people don't realise is that macrame is also easy to make once you know how. Join us for an hour long session and Fuko Carron will take you through easy steps to make your own macrame.


Pop into our store at Ponsonby Central for a little culture exchange - we'll happily show some of the ways Furoshiki can be folded or how to brew green tea the traditional Japanese way.

Folding Furoshiki

Furoshiki is a traditional Japanese square cloth used for carrying clothes, gifts, food and other goods. It's a great environmental alternative for disposable plastic bags and the like, which has seen it rise in popularity in Japan and abroad. Pop into our store and well demonstrate some of the great ways Furoshiki can be folded and used.

Green Tea the Japanese way

Enjoy learning the simple steps of making a beautiful green tea. Taste the difference between brewing from tea bags and using good quality leaves and an authentic process of making tea. Once you learn this technique it's super easy to do yourself at home. Come in and see us and we'll happily talk you through it.


Treasure Hunting:

We'll be selling off a lot of clearance and rare stock, so don't miss this chance to swing by and pick up some goodies. 

And... Of course, The Shelter is the next block over with a whole heap of our new arrivals and most popular items, so make sure you pop in there while you're around.
