Participants Must:

1) Bring at least one tree that is either pre-bonsai or one that has been worked on, but has a challenging “problems”.

2) Bring their own tools --- at least a pair of scissors.

3) Have looked pretty hard at their tree(s) and have some improvement ideas.

4) Understand that these are hands-on workshops. The instructors will work with each participant individually to arrive at a plan and then coach him or her on how to do it.


Our goal is to lead participants to do all of the work on their trees – a working workshop.
However, if asked, the instructor will step in for difficult or risky steps.
