Free to members, No sIgn-up required. Bring your trees to repot! Please ensure you have soil and all necessary tools to repot your tree.

April 17 - Tuesday, 7:00 PM - Wiring and shaping techniques/picking a tree to get ready to show at State Fair


There are artistic and technical aspects of bonsai. Wiring is difficult. Good wiring not only holds the branch in place but must be attractive to look at. Participants will learn the basics of wiring and do wiring on their trees. The shaping of trees and tree design can be difficult and will show your artistic ability. Tree design is a never ending process in bonsai and your hands-on work coming to Bonsai Basics will increase your ability to design trees. The State Fair is coming in September and you should be deciding which trees you will be showing so we can start getting them ready.

If you are repotting, please bring trees to repot.
