Bonsai Basics II: Styling & Design Workshop (Spring 2023)
The Basics II workshop is designed for beginner (slightly intermediate) Bonsai enthusiasts who have already completed the Bonsai Basics I workshop or have some fundamental knowledge of Bonsai.
This workshop requires students to bring their own Bonsai trees and focuses on enhancing the skills learned in the basics program.
The instructor, who is an experienced Bonsai professional, will provide guidance and support as students work on their trees, covering topics such as wiring, pruning and styling, and creative design elements. Each student will receive personalized feedback and advice from the instructor.
Learn and enhance your skills in a fun learning environment, while taking your Bonsai journey to the next level.
Requirements for the Workshop Include:
- Completion of Bonsai Basics or some fundamental knowledge of Bonsai.
- Ability to bring a Bonsai tree - tropical, deciduous, or conifer species.
- Healthy trees that have not been repotted in the past two months.
