Bonsai Bonanza!

September 22 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EDT


Led by John Cassels, Hamilton Educational Fellow and Bonsai Enthusiast

Bonsai is an ancient art form that has existed for centuries.  It inspires creativity and connects people to the natural world.  However, not everyone knows how to train a tree to grow into a miniature living masterpiece.  If you have been considering picking up Bonsai as a hobby but never knew where to start, have no fear.  Come join us for a crash course on Bonsai.  During the lecture, you will learn everything from the science to the styles of Bonsai.  After the lecture stick around for a workshop (workshop size limited) where we will get you started on your very own Bonsai.  This lecture and workshop will provide you everything you need to know about the ancient art of Bonsai so you can go home confident and excited to begin your creative journey to a deeper connection with nature.

Free of Charge. 
Pre-registration required for the workshop as space is limited.
