What you will do
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
