Upcoming Classes and Workshops
I teach classes and workshops, and I am available to provide programs for bonsai clubs and other organizations interested in the art of bonsai.
Upcoming Workshops and Events:
Saturday May 4th, 2019 9am-1pm – Bonsai Basics Class
This class is designed for the beginning bonsai student. If you have an interest in bonsai but don’t know where to start, this class will provide a launchpad, and a plant to take home!
For over ten years I’ve taught hundreds of students how to get started with bonsai, and I can get you started!
The class will cover the following:
- A brief history of bonsai
- The basics of the different major style categories
- Basic styling techniques
- Basic care of bonsai
- Recommended tools and materials
Students will receive a pre-bonsai plant at the start of the class. During the class we will perform basic styling work on the trees and discuss plans for the future. Because bonsai is an ongoing relationship between the plant and the grower this class will start with the initial shaping; Students are encouraged to return for additional workshops to learn more about wiring and repotting. The type of plant will be determined based on availability of suitable material.
Students can bring a pair of bonsai scissors if they have one but we have some extras on hand if not.

Class participation is limited to 6 students. Cost is $100 per student.
