{Locally Found} Succulent Love

Recently I was invited to my very first succulent workshop with the beautiful Renelle at Pop-Up Succulent Shop to say I had a brilliant afternoon would be such an understatement.


Upon arriving you are met with a glass of bubbles and a delicious cheese & fruit platter (she won me over right there!). Before long I forgot I was in a class and it felt much more like I was in my friend’s lounge room having a few drinks and learning some new things about gardening.


Renelle was patient and explained perfectly what we had to do. She answered ALL my probably ridiculous questions and even helped me when I realised things for my kokedama were not quite going according to plan!

My mum came with me and quickly we made friends with the other people at the workshop, that’s the thing you see it was relaxed and friendly. There were no strangers just friends we were yet to meet.  4

Renelle supplies everything you need to make two kokedamas and she even gives some good hints on how to wrap other plants you buy to make great gifts or house plants.

I am far from a good gardener but bloody hell I was proud when I came home and showed the hubs and kids what I had made. I now very proudly have two kokedamas in my kitchen and each and every time I look at them I get all warm and fuzzy and remember the great afternoon I had.


Make sure you grab a pal and check out one of the workshops offered by Renelle at  Pop-Up Succulent Shop. She holds a range of workshops including kokedamas, wreath and general potting classes.

You can also have a chat to Renelle at many markets and events she attends around our area.
