Now accepting students for 2014/2015.
Kaikou (meaning ’unexpected encounter’ in Japanese) school is headed by John Romano.
Our very popular school is now in its fourth year.
Kaikou students will register for two years (eight sessions) of classes.
Each class will meet at least four times in the calendar year for an entire day.
Participants will be given a basic course outline and assignments to complete between meetings.
Kaikou School is founded on the belief that the health of the bonsai is always the number one priority. Our goals are to:
- •Improve our bonsai knowledge and techniques.
- •Respect tradition while exploring new ideas.
- •Treat each other and our bonsai with respect, generosity and compassion.
- •Nurture creativity through bonsai.
Participants must register and pay in advance for all 8 classes. Members receive 10% off most workshops.
Tuition for 2 years is $650ºº and includes soil, wire and use of some tools.
Also we’ve added a new perk for Kaikou students- 50% off any other workshop which is not included in the Kaikou roster
(except Private tutorials and classes with visiting Masters)
John Romano is an award winning bonsai artist who has studied in Japan, received numerous awards for his bonsai and has written many definitive articles on bonsai. His specialty is Shohin (smaller) bonsai. He writes the shohin bonsai column for International Bonsai Magazine.
