About the Event
Bonsai Plants are grown in shallow containers following the precise tenets of bonsai pruning and training, resulting in an artful miniature replica of a full-grown tree in nature. In this two part workshop learn the basics of repotting and styling a tropical bonsai tree.
Everything you need is supplied including a small ficus tree, soil, wire, and a locally made bonsai pot.
The practice of bonsai development incorporates a number of techniques either unique to bonsai or, if used in other forms of cultivation, applied in unusual ways that are particularly suitable to the bonsai domain. These techniques include:
- Leaf trimming, the selective removal of leaves (for most varieties of deciduous tree) or needles (for coniferous trees and some others) from a bonsai's trunk and branches.
- Pruning the trunk, branches, and roots of the candidate tree.
- Wiring branches and trunks allows the bonsai designer to create the desired general form and make detailed branch and leaf placements.
- Clamping using mechanical devices for shaping trunks and branches.
The first workshop will be repotting and securing the tree into a pot.
The second workshop will be pruning and styling the tree.
The date of the second workshop will be decided during the first workshop.
