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.
