Description

Learn all about the Japanese art of creating pot-less plants, known as kokedama, from botanical extraordinaire Coraleigh Parker, and have a go at creating your own pot-less, hanging plants. Coraleigh's breath-taking moss ball creations, featuring ferns, succulents, herbs, orchids and even small trees, are suspended in mid-air and supported by nothing more than a series of strings or fishing lines, intricately wrapped around a root ball.  Decorating with indoor plants has never been more popular and hanging kokedama is the ultimate botanical trend as it offers everything through a single, versatile and inexpensive craft; you can turn any of your favourite plants into a kokedama on a (shoe)string in no time.

The author

Coraleigh Parker is the founder of Pickled Whimsy, a botanical design business in New Zealand. Pickled Whimsy was born out of Coraleigh's love of plants and a desire to see people engaging with plants on a different level. Captivated by the idea of a living botanical artwork that encourages participation through observation, kokedama became the main focus of her work. Coraleigh was the pioneer of string gardens in New Zealand and is now leading the industry through its infancy into an exciting new future. Coraleigh brings passion and excitement to her botanical work, tempered by the gentle and “slow living” nature of her lifestyle. She lived in Chile, the USA, Germany and Egypt, before returning to New Zealand to raise a family and start her own business.

Make a Pet Bowl Holder Out of a Pallet
Let’s face it, dogs just aren’t tidy eaters. (Well, most aren’t, anyway.) During their happy eating bonanza, water is splashed and drooled onto the floor, bowls are scattered, and paws help spread the mess once the meal is done. Towels and mops are usually involved afterward. Chris Peterson shares a pet bowl holder project in ...
