Make Your Own Mini Japanese Garden at This West End Workshop

Creating a miniature Japanese garden can be gratifying and you can learn how to make one at this three-hour workshop at Mappin’s Nursery & Aquarium on Montague Road in West End.

Conducted by Kent Florist, the miniature Japanese garden workshop is set for Sunday, the 2nd of June 2019, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The class is for $95 per person, which already covers the cost of materials like the plants, driftwood, gravel, pottery, rocks, and the container.

Mikoko Inoue, the owner of Kent Florist, has almost two decades of experience as a florist and a wedding provider. She has worked on film sets, on commercial environments and in various functions for business and governments.

Ms Inoue will teach students what materials go well and what shouldn’t be arranged together during the miniature Japanese garden workshop. She will also guide students on how to create artistic designs despite the space constraints of a small container.

Doing miniature gardens as a hobby helps people connect with nature and highlight their creative side. It may also take them back to their childhood and remind them of how fun it was to assemble, construct or build doll houses, figures, vehicles and other objects.

Green tea and Japanese treats will be served at the workshop. You may claim your spot and pay for the ticket online.
