Participants Must:

1) Come to the nursery earlier if they don't already have their own bonsai trees and/or tools to get some before class starts.

2) Bring one or two trees that are either pre-bonsai or one that has been worked on, but has some challenging issues that they would like advice on.

3) Bring their own tools --- at least a pair of sharp fine tipped scissors.

4) Have looked pretty hard at their trees and have some improvement ideas already in mind.

5) Understand that these are hands-on workshop style classes. The instructor will work with each participant individually to arrive at a plan and then coach him or her on how to do it.


Bonsai Class Topics Covered:

Trimming and Branch Ramification

Repotting, Soil Preparation, Tool Care and Tool Sharpening

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.
