Emily Louise Jacks

Emily Louise Jacks is a director, designer, and self-professed flower lover.

A born and raised Texas gal, Emily moved to sunny SoCal, made the bold move to leave a successful corporate advertising career, and got a job at a local flower shop shortly followed by opening her own event planning and design firm — Louise Georges Yves. They say you can take the girl out of Texas, but apparently, not for long! Lucky enough to call Corpus Christi, San Antonio, Austin, and Dallas as her Texas homes, Emily has reconnected with the beautiful city that is San Antonio. Presently, she shares her Texacali style and love of people, planning, and design as Studio Director with local interior design firm, Carla Royder Designs & Co. 

Emily graduated from the University of Texas at Austin and thanks her lucky stars that she met and roomed with Lucky Star founder, Lisa Field.

Class Description:

Kokedama is a form of Japanese garden art that is centuries old and involves creating the moss/soil ball equivalent of a terrarium. It literally translates from “koke” meaning moss and “dama” meaning ball. During class we will take the roots of our plants, cover them in a specialized handmade clay and soil mud mixture, and then coat it with soft green moss. We will also experiment with flat tabletop displays and string suspended designs. While designing your own kokedama, you will learn about the best types of plants to use, the type of soil best suited to these plants, and care tips to maximize the exposed root system and encourage overall sustainability.
