This class will instruct the beginning bonsai enthusiast in the techniques needed to turn a standard nursery stock plant into their very own bonsai. During our time together we will discuss briefly the history of bonsai, the most common styles of bonsai, the specialized tools needed and general bonsai care. We will then proceed to create our own bonsai. Using pre-selected nursery stock we will find the front and line our trees, use careful pruning and pinching to remove unwanted branches, leaves and needles, as well as use basic wiring techniques to help shape our trees.
