ART OF BONSAI: INTERMEDIATE

Register Here

Bonsai means “a tree in a tray.” The art of bonsai creates the illusion of age and maturity of a tree which has developed and sustained the effects of nature for many years. Students of bonsai learn to artfully trim and train a tree in a container.  Beginner classes are available.
