This course teaches you the Japanese art of Bonsai, the growing of a tree or plant in a shallow dish, using Australian native plants. You will get to learn about the history of bonsai and the techniques of maintaining your bonsai, including correctly watering it, pruning it and keeping it pest and disease free. Practical activities are involved so participants are required to bring gloves and wear closed footwear. The best part is that you get to take home the Australian Native Bonsai that you have constructed during the class.

Details for the event are as follows:

09.45am - Registration and coffee

10.00am - Masterclass outline

10.10am - Presentation about the Art and Science of Bonsai
