They're your new tiny tree friends
Trees are great but their main issue is that they are sometimes too big. Bonsai trees are a much more controllable size and they can be so great for your mental health too. Cutting your Bonsai tree helps you to focus and take a deep breath, living in the moment of just taking care of your tree and doing nothing else. This workshop is perfect for everyone who has enjoyed the sight of Bonsai trees but never had the chance to work with one.
In this class, you learn about the history of Bonsai and what sort of tools you get to use. There are lots of different types of Bonsai trees, which include Juniper, Japanese box and Ficus, and it takes a special skill to keep the little tree at the right size. There are also special skills that are required to keep the tree healthy and looking great.
In this class, you get the pots, Bonsai soil, wire, and plants that you need. However, you can use the tools in class, but you don't get to take them home. You will have to purchase your own at a different time. You don't need to know anything about Bonsai to take part in this class, it is open to everyone over the age of 8.
The next class is on Sunday, 7th of august at 12:30pm and goes until 3:30pm. If you can't make it, make sure to register for a date when you can. These classes are run at small sizes so you can get the best learning experience possible. When three people register for a class, then the classes open for others to buy tickets too. Get your friends together to all register to ensure you get the perfect date for the class you want.
The classes are $250. Some profits are donated to the Dementia Australia charity. It is a lot of money but these classes are very thorough and very popular. If you can afford it, make sure to pick up this new hobby and you will soon have lots of little, beautiful trees all needing your attention. They are also great as gifts!
