Curious about Bonsai?
This fascinating fusion of art and horticulture has a long history and has been taken up all around the world. If you would like to learn more about creating and keeping miniature trees, an opportunity to get hands on knowledge is coming up soon.
The Columbus Bonsai Society will conduct an introductory bonsai class Saturday, April 14,2018. The one day session will be held in The Gustav and Bertha Reiner Horticultural Education Center at Oakland Nursery, 1156 Oakland Park Ave. Columbus. http://www.oaklandnursery.com/web/columbuscenter.html
The class will take place between 12:00PM and 5:00 PM and is intended to be a thorough introduction to the art and craft of miniature trees, the Japanese bonsai. Participants will learn basic techniques to create, train and maintain bonsai trees in classroom and discussion phases of the session and then will put that knowledge to use in hands on workshops.
Each participant will begin the process of developing a bonsai. Instructors will discuss many aspects of the art and horticulture of bonsai: including history, design, tools, styling techniques and others. The main focus will be keeping the trees alive.
The class is intended for participants of all skill levels, no previous experience with bonsai-or plants of any kind is required.
Cost of the class is $45 which includes all necessary materials. A 2018 membership in the Columbus Bonsai Society is also part of the package.
