Bonsai Basics Workshop - Dwarf Jade Forest Arrangement (Saturday - June 8, 2024)

Embark on a journey of creativity and cultivation with our Unique Bonsai Dwarf Jade (Portulacaria afra) Forest Workshop. It's an All-Inclusive workshop that will allow you to create a 5 tree grove / forest arrangement.

In this hands-on workshop, you'll delve into the intricacies of Bonsai Forest creation, from designing enchanting forest layouts to preparing the trees for planting and mastering the art of wiring. The star of the show, the Portulacaria afra (Dwarf Jade), adds a unique and charming element to your forest, known for its resilient nature and distinctive appearance.

As you embark on the journey of crafting your Bonsai Forest, you'll have the opportunity to choose from a variety of trees (thicknes, height, etc), allowing for personalization and creativity to shine. Whether you're a novice or an experienced enthusiast, this workshop is designed to inspire and guide you in the creation of a truly exceptional Bonsai Forest. Join us for an immersive experience that combines knowledge, creativity, and the joy of cultivating your own miniature natural masterpiece.

The instructor will help you select a “pre-bonsai” (a trained plant in a nursery pot), transplant, trim, prune and transform your tree. After a couple of hours, you’ll go home with an awesome Bonsai tree and a full understanding of maintenance.

All workshops are led by one of our Bonsai experts. We provide some of the happiest and healthiest Bonsai trees, and we love to share our knowledge!
