BYOT WORKSHOP
(Bring Your Own Tree)
This is an open workshop which means you do not have to pre-register, come and go as you please.
The cost is only $35.00 for the workshop including soil and wire, within reason.
Pre-bonsai trees and all supplies are available.
Observers are welcome at no charge, so come spend the day or just a few hours.
You can come anytime between the hours of 9:00-3:00.
If you are more experienced in bonsai and just want styling ideas, or help with wiring or potting, you can bring up to three trees. If you are a novice and want to learn how to create a bonsai we recommend you concentrate on just one tree, it takes awhile to completely style a tree. Newcomers are not yet capable of doing much of the hands on work themselves, and we like to take the time to explain what we are doing as we do it. This is not only good for them, but it helps even the more experienced learn more tips on wiring, styling and such. As people gain experience we want them to do more of the work themselves, then I will assist them in styling their tree. This is a workshop for you to learn how to, not for us to do all the work for you. Experience is the best teacher. Our desire is to help you learn the art of bonsai.
We want to encourage people to bring a previous BYOT tree back with them each time they come so we can guide them on how to proceed with improving the ramification, this will not count as a workshop, if that is all you bring there will be no charge.
We will have coffee and something delicious for the early birds, fruits and snacks for the munchies with soda, water and pizza for lunch if you want it. Pizza is $5.00, some people pack a lunch. And who knows what delectable thing someone might bring for us.
