An Introductory Workshop Presented by Tony Bywater, Christchurch Bonsai Society.
Bonsai is an art form probably started by the Chinese over 2000 years ago, using trees grown in containers or on rocks to represent the beauty and majesty of nature.
Have you ever thought of developing your own Bonsai tree? Come to this workshop to learn how to do it. Watch an ordinary nursery tree turned into a Bonsai, then have a go yourself. Learn what to look for in nursery trees, how to select which branches to keep and which to cut off, how to pot it up and how to look after it. All good fun and you get your very own Bonsai to take home!
Tony has been a member of the Christchurch Bonsai Society since the late ‘70’s and has taught their beginners class for more than 20 years.
The registration fee of $20 will cover the tree, potting mix, grow bags, wire, and morning tea.
You need to be registered for this event. A limited number of places are available for this popular workshop, so don’t delay.
Lincoln Envirotown Community Gardens are located on James Street, behind the Lincoln Maternity Hospital. Please park on the road.
