Willow Bonsai Academy


Venue: Willow Bonsai Shop in Freeborn str, Die Wilgers, Pta

Time: 9am - 3pm


All bonsai trees get to a stage where first styling has been completed and the need for further refinement of the design is neccesary. This is also a great time to relook into design options to further the tree. 

This class will cover the following:

  • Refinement, what it is and how to be critical on your trees
  • fine wiring
  • branch selection
  • Nebari refinement
  • Trunk refinement
  • Shari/Jin refinement
  • Pot choice refining


Items to bring: Make sure you have different grades of wire, a tree that has previously been styled. Bonsai tools and some snacks for the day.

Wire and tools are also available in the shop on the day.


Spaces are limited
