Bonsai Carving Introduction
April 29, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm$60.00
The Bonsai Carving Introduction is a tutor led workshop and is aimed at beginner and intermediate enthusiasts interested in the art of bonsai carving.
The workshop will be led by one of our own instructors, Chris, who will run through the power tools used for bonsai carving, the cutting bits and the safety measures when using them. Chris will then proceed to demonstrate the methods used to carve out a bonsai and give you time to get the feel for the power tools.
Finally you will be advised on how to evaluate a tree for how the wood deteriorate and what type of carving to undertake in order to achieve the desired result. The remaining time will be your chance to carve your own tree under the supervision of Chris and the Beechfield Bonsai team.
The Bonsai Carving Introduction is part of the Beechfield Bonsai Path of Bonsai series, aimed to give you the knowledge you need to successfully buy, grow and develop you and your tree.
What you need to bring
We advise you to bring everything you would need if working on your trees at home; that means a tree or trees, power tools, carving bits etc. However if you are missing any items on the day, don’t worry, we will do our best to lend you everything you will need.
We also have the nursery stock at hand if you need to purchase anything on the day.
This workshop will start at 10:00 and end at 4:00pm giving you a full day of bonsai learning. We will provide drinks, refreshments and a light lunch consisting of sandwiches, but you are welcome to bring your own food if you prefer.
The course will be limited to six (6) attendees to enable you to get the most from the time spent with the instructor.
