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. Be sure to check when the next workshop is in order to attend and make the most of these valuable opportunities to improve your trees and have a bit of fun while doing it.

Random Bonsai Tip

Straightening training wire - For those who don't know and for those who have forgotten - to straighten training wire that has been removed from a tree, grasp each end of the wire with a pair of pliers and jerk apart. Alternatively, grasping one end of the wire in a vice, and the other with pliers is much more effective as then it is possible to rub the shaft of a screwdriver up and down the wire getting rid of the small bumps.
