The Art of Bonsai – Thursday
September 19, 2024, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm$40.00
The Art of Bonsai embodies the Japanese spirit with philosophy and aesthetics harmonizing and complimenting each other. Bonsai is more than just an art form – it is a way of life and thinking; a way of cultivating patience, nobility, and sympathy – and this is the reason why bonsai is important for Japanese culture. Therefore, to understand bonsai, you must learn and understand each of its core values in order to experience it with a calm and open mind.

Please bring your own pruners or snippers.
