Bonsai Show

Demonstration: What is a traditional Japanese bonsai display? | Sherman Library & Gardens

Presented by Coastal Bonsai 

Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2 
10:30 am – 4 pm

Come and learn about the art of bonsai. The show will include a display of exquisite miniature trees presented by Coastal Bonsai and introduce visitors to a variety of techniques and approaches. Following the ancient Japanese tradition, the trees are intended to replicate the character of old trees found in nature using trees or shrubs grown in containers. Find out more about the art of dwarfing and reshaping the gifts of nature into a living art object.

This group of bonsai enthusiasts is dedicated to sharing their skills and to inspiring the next generation or growers. Members of Coastal Bonsai will be available during the show to give advice and information, including giving talks and workshops.
