Bonsai Introductory Course Jan. 14

Bonsai admirers who want to learn the art of bonsai have a great opportunity as Dave Hodgetts begins a new Bonsai Introductory Course at pfm bonsai, January 14 at 10:00 AM. Designed for beginners and those in need of refreshing their bonsai skills, this multi-session course will cover in detail:

• Classic structuring and designing of bonsai
• Styling and the basic styles
• Bonsai tools and usage
• Selecting bonsai stock
• Pruning, wiring and shaping techniques
• Containers, potting and transplanting
• Care and maintenance

The course typically meets for ten sessions but the number of days needed to cover the material will be determined by participants at the first session, so bring your calendar.

The course is $250 (plus tax). Additional costs are modest and include nursery trees, pots and wire. Each student will receive a copy of the ABS Introduction to Bonsai Note Book and will create at least one bonsai. Students may use studio tools. If you wish to purchase your own, the studio has tools and supplies available.

Classes will be taught by David Hodgetts and held at pfm bonsai studio, 7 Western Avenue in West Charlton, NY. To register or learn more, contact Pauline Muth at 518-882-1039 or Pauline@pfmbonsai.com.
