What you'll do

I'll give you a brief intro to bonsai by showing you my garden, video clips, books, and actual bonsai at my bonsai cafe. After the brief intro, I'll lead a 3-hour bonsai workshop during which we'll discuss the basics of bonsai, structure, and what bonsai means to you. After the workshop we'll get together for happy hour at my bonsai cafe.
