Description

Curious about exploring the art of bonsai but not sure how to start? Perfect for beginners, this class will increase your confidence with bonsai and provide an opportunity for hands-on learning with a tree of your own to take home!

This two hour class begins with an art and cultural history tour of bonsai. Participants will then learn how to wire and repot their tree as well as bending techniques. The class concludes with a discussion about plant care, pest prevention, treatments, and winter protection.

Cost: $80 includes professional instruction + materials (3" pot, tree, soil).

About the instructor: Daniel Coffey is an American bonsai artist and educator based in North Carolina. His passion for bonsai has lead him to a deep appreciation for a variety of styles and disciplines within the art form. He has spent multiple years living in Japan as a formal apprentice to Junichiro Tanaka, 4th generation bonsai master of 'Aichien', a bonsai nursery in Nagoya Japan operating for over 120 years. Additionally, he has served as intern and visiting artist for some of the United States' finest public and private bonsai collections, including the National Bonsai & Penjing Museum in Washington D.C. and The Pacific Bonsai Museum in Federal Way, Washington. His work, both original compositions and contributions to well established bonsai, have been displayed at national level exhibitions in Japan and the United States. Read more about Danny here
