At this masterclass, participants will get to know the history of bonsai, learn how to choose the plant most suitable for their environment and how to plant and construct one. Participants will also be taught techniques to keep their bonsai, which includes how to prune and repot them. Lunch will be provided and participants will be able to take home the bonsai they created during the masterclass.
