Workshops

Members of the Cape Bonsai Kai gather on a monthly basis for workshops. The main goal of these workshops are for club members to bring trees to work on. During the workshop you will gain input from senior members and be able to share ideas, learn techniques or as Tony Bent loves to say "do boring chores like wiring!"

Workshops are held by the club, hosted at member's houses for club members only. The workshops usually begin at 13h30 and carry on till around 16h00.  If applicable see the map to the next workshop below or contact us for more details should you wish to attend the next workshop.

Random Bonsai Tip

So much time is spent on striving towards perfection in the foliage area of trees but little contemplation goes into the area around the nebari. Consider planting your tree at different heights in the pot which might enhance the existing taper and roots. If your tree lacks roots use moss mounded in such a way to suggest underlying roots, or you can even use sticks of similar appearance to the wood of the tree as 'fake' roots until you are able to coerce roots to fill the void. Use appropriate gravel to complete the scene.
