Want to know more about bonsai?

We run bonsai classes & workshops throughout the year. these classes are a great introduction for anyone wanting to make their own bonsai or learn more about trees they already have. Informal, friendly and yet informative, we cover many interesting topics such as:

    • The origins and history of bonsai
    • Different styles and designs of trees
    • Sources of raw material which can be used to make bonsai trees
    • How to prune bonsai trees
    • How to wire bonsai trees
    • Bonsai soil mixtures
    • How to design bonsai trees

“The main thing people ask me is how to see the bonsai tree in the plants that they have” – Adam

We keep the group sizes really small (maximum of four people) to ensure that you get lots of individual attention. This means that we can cover a lot more detail than we could if we had big groups.

Cement your existing knowledge

Our workshops are the ideal place to put into practice some of the things that you may have seen online. Videos and articles can only take you so far and there is nothing better than getting your handy dirty to aid learning!

Booking In

Our bonsai classes & workshops are great value at only £25 per session. This price includes use of tools, wire and soil – all you need to bring along are trees to work on. Please give Adam a call on 07903 406 373 to book and discuss what trees you should bring along.

We generally hold the workshops on a Sunday morning, starting at 1030, running for around 3 hours. We have a coffee shop on site for refreshments and lunch afterwards if you wish.

Bring a friend – book a class for two people and pay just £40

Get your Bonsai Collection Going

Many bonsai enthusiasts (and would-be enthusiasts) want to build a combined collection of purchased and self-made bonsai trees. We can provide lots of really useful assistance with growing bonsai trees from scratch. We’ll spend some time looking our our project trees, showing you how its done, along with tips, tricks and pointers to help you on the way.

Bonsai Landscape Workshops

Creating miniature bonsai landscapes is fun, artistic and remarkably easy with a little help at our workshops.

We have a good supply of pots, rocks and trees available.

Open Workshops

Open workshops are a chance to bring along established and part-trained bonsai trees to work on with our assistance. We can cover any aspect of bonsai design on any species of tree. These workshops are aimed at bonsai enthusiasts who already have knowledge of basic styling and growing techniques and are looking to learn and develop. You may be someone with just a few trees or a larger collection.
