All-Inclusive Bonsai Basics Workshop (Saturday, June 15, 2024) Hosted at the Franklin Park Zoo

Please note: Zoo admission is required to attend class

Have you always wanted your very own bonsai tree, but don't know where to start? Are you concerned about buying a tree without knowing how to keep it alive and happy? If so, we have the perfect workshop for you!

Bonsai Basics is an All-Inclusive introductory, hands-on workshop, designed for people who are new to the art of bonsai. The 3-hour workshop covers the basics of bonsai, including:

  1. Brief history and origins of bonsai.
  2. Understanding the types of trees suitable for bonsai.
  3. The principles of bonsai design and styling.
  4. Basic techniques for planting, pruning, wiring, and repotting bonsai trees.
  5. Care and maintenance of bonsai trees, including watering, fertilizing, and pest control.

The hands-on workshop is the perfect place for beginners to demystify the Art of Bonsai! Upon completing the workshop, you'll walk away with an awesome bonsai tree, but more importantly, you’ll have the confidence to care for it.

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!

What’s Included with the All-Inclusive Workshop:

  • Seasoned Instructor: Our instructors bring a wealth of knowledge, skills, and practical expertise to the table in the art and science of bonsai cultivation. They've dedicated a substantial amount of time to delve into the study, practice, and mastery of bonsai techniques.
