The Bonsai Society is holding these courses to fast track newcomers and to receive a good grounding of the basics in bonsai.
The basics of bonsai will be covered during the morning of the course and in the afternoon you will watch a complete demonstration in creating a bonsai-in-training. We will use the knowledge you have learnt in the morning sessions and then have a Q & A session.
There will be a critique session and you may to bring in some of your bonsai for review and improvement. You may choose to bring up to 3 trees to discuss with mentors or display during the Q&A session. We hope this course will whet your appetite and kick start the love of bonsai as it becomes a life-long passion.
