Bonsai Workshop: Creating a Traditional Japanese Three Point Display

August 6 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Bonsai Workshop: Creating a Traditional Japanese Three Point Display

Join Jorge Perez and Debra Mauzy-Melitz from the Orange Empire Bonsai Society to create a traditional Japanese three point display worthy of a home showcase or a special gift. You will be planting and styling a cork-bark Portulacaria afra, assembling a mini-Saikei (a natural blend of rocks, trees, smaller plants and mosses) and painting a complimenting scroll featuring a morning glory – the customary Japanese plant for August. At the end of the workshop, participants will arrange their bonsai and saikei with a scroll and mat to complete a summer bonsai display. The history and “rules” of a Japanese seasonal display will be discussed, but each participant will be encouraged to design a display to reflect their own creativity. 

Max 10 participants
