In this beginner course, learn about bonsai, the centuries-old Asiatic art of dwarfing trees and shrubs grown in pots or small spaces. Learn the care and culture of bonsai and techniques for designing and maintaining these sculptured treasures. This class has three components: an online module, an orientation, and a hands-on session. When you register, you’ll get access to a series of online instructional videos and lectures. Watch and study them on your own prior to the course date. Then gather online to learn tips and tricks as well as get ready for creating a bonsai tree from scratch.

Choose a hands-on session to attend and work in a small group with a dedicated instructor to guide you through the process of making your own bonsai tree to take home for outdoor display.

Register for the hands-on session of your choice, and the other two components are included.

Receive 3-month access to information about the Basics of Bonsai course and guided videos to extend your class experience. Course fee includes plant, wire, potting material, container, and bonsai scissors.
