This workshop will be available only once this summer, led by our Resident Bonsai Master, Jun Imabayashi. Root over rock style is one of the more interesting styles in Bonsai. We try to recreate mother nature in her most irreverent way of growing plants in the harshest conditions. The biggest challenge when attempting this style is to make the composition feel natural and settled. This class will teach you just that with a strong dose of good horticulture to make your planting thrive.
You will need to purchase the tree and pot. Otherwise, all other supplies are included (rock, moss, tools, wire, etc.).
Attendee Cost: $45 per student
Duration: 10am – 1pm. Please arrive a few minutes early.
Included with Workshop:
Rock for rooting
Refreshments & snack (water, soda, chips)
Bonsai tools, soil, and wire to support the class
What’s NOT included:
Bonsai Tree. Participants have preferences (small tree, large tree, indoor, low light, etc). Allowing participants to select their own tree works best. We have hundreds of Pre-Bonsai (starting at $9.90)
Bonsai Pot: Same as the tree, participants have color and shape preferences. It’s not included but we have thousands of pots to choose from.
Attendees Per Class: 10
Location: Unless otherwise specified, all students should meet in the greenhouse labeled “Workshop”. It’s right behind our retail store – you won’t miss it.
Class will cover care instructions, the elements of Bonsai style and design, wintering your Bonsai, and more.
Upon completion of the Root Over Rock workshop, participants will go home with their own beautiful Bonsai, complete care instructions and the knowledge and confidence to keep it thriving.
