Overview

Single session

Close your eyes, concentrate, think only tree...

Bonsai means ‘plant in a tray’ and is the ancient Japanese art of stunting a trees growth by skillful branch and root pruning. The tree is prohibited from developing by keeping it in a small container.

When you begin to bonsai, you are shaping the idea of a tree, that belongs somewhere in the future. Bonsai are often passed down through generations as heirlooms, leaving a legacy of hope, serenity and grace.

In this class, you will put together your very own bonsai tree. Learn how to:

  • Select your tree
  • Select your pot
  • Consider style
  • Wiring
  • Repotting
  • Pruning
