Often paired with bonsai, kusamono are potted arrangements of wild grasses and flowers in unique pots or trays selected to suggest a season, place, or natural habitat.
Join esteemed U.S. kusamono artist Young Choe—who teaches the art of kusamono worldwide and has exhibited her work at the U.S. National Arboretum to the National Bonsai & Penjing Museum, among others—for a hands-on experience immersed in this Japanese botanical artform. Through a lecture and demonstration, learn characteristic kusamono styles, methods for creation, display techniques, and care. Then, create your own kusamono to take home and enjoy.
