Introductory
Bonsai Course
    Open Bonsai
Workshops

Designed particularly for students who have had no experience in this fascinating living horticultural art form. The aesthetic appreciation and fundamentals of classical bonsai art are taught in this five week course. Major emphasis will be on the theory and techniques of bonai design, pruning,wiring and potting. Each three hour lesson consists of a slide lecture, demonstration and workshop where students are encouraged and assisted in creating their own bonsai. Five bonsai will be created by each student by the end of the course. The course offered in autumn uses indoor tropical species, while the spring session uses winter hardy species.
