Get Crafty: Kokedama Workshops at Glasswing

Put your green thumb to good use and learn to craft Japanese bonsai for your wedding.

WHAT: One of the first things you’ll notice when you walk into Capitol Hill’s Glasswing is the greenery, so it makes sense that there would be a workshop where you can take home a plant. Kokedama, a style of Japanese bonsai where a plant’s roots are wrapped in moss and tied with string, is a living piece of art—and a cool, organic decor idea for greenery-rich weddings. With one workshop at noon and another one at 3, you can create three different kokedama sculptures. Local botanist Betina Simmons Blaine will be conducting the classes.
