Learn how to make a DIY planted Bonsai (yours to keep), in this interesting, hands-on and easy plant workshop in Sydney!

Did you know, Bonsai is a Japanese technique of styling and caring for a tree in a pot? These little trees take almost no effort to maintain, and can easily live for many years if you follow the tips from this class.

Held at Merchant & Green Redfern, you'll be surrounded by plants, and be provided with premium ingredients, including a choice of Asian style ceramic pots, mini trees, potting mix and decorative stones and moss.

You even get a pair of scissors to use and keep after the class. Learn the basics, with an easy-to-follow step by step demonstration, and the team will give you one-on-one feedback and tips along the way.

This is an interactive and relaxing class, and you'll have plenty of time to ask questions. Take away your very own handcrafted Bonsai plant, a Merchant & Green Bonsai care card, a memorable experience, as well as knowledge and skills enabling you to build more Bonsai by yourself.

The Merchant & Green team looks forward to welcoming you to our studio soon!
