A JAPANESE art form was taught to people who visited a community allotment on Weston’s Bournville estate.

Volunteers from the Growing Together project hosted the kokedama workshop.

Kokedama means moss ball, and people made a floral ball and an edible one using plants grown on the Coleridge Road allotment site.

The event was part of the Made In North Somerset Festival and artist Nicky Osborne, who volunteers with the Growing Together project, led the workshop.

Growing Together encourages people to get involved in horticulture.
