Kokedama Workshop Jan 28 & 29


The Old Sweater Factory, a warehouse next to the Bardahl Oil sign in Ballard (Seattle WA), will be host to a gargantuan art installation focused on bringing light up to the Pacific Northwest and indoors.

This Festival of Lights is called ONN/OF.  Its goal is “to engage with a weekend of visual art, performance, installation, projection, music, food and drink, and workshops that in some way use “light”.”

Come by and see the installation piece built by Margot Bird, Bonsai In the Aviary, inspired by the moss explosion after this week’s snow fall.  It is an elaborate example of the relationship between epiphytic plants with nature and humans with nature.

Individual kokedama bonsai as part of the installation will be for sale.

Saturday, January 28th ~   4 – 7pm
