Learn the art of making Bonsai trees with nature's influence! So, you want to learn the art of Yamadori but aren’t really sure what it is? Yamadori literally means “collecting plants in the mountains” but is loosely translated into gathering plants from the wild. The found plant specimen is then carefully and skillfully trained into works of art also known as Bonsai. Yamadori is the most coveted type of Bonsai because of its unique characteristics. The interesting shape and lines of the plant tell a story that can’t be replicated in the nursery. Only time and nature can sculpt the uniquely gnarled and twisted trunks and branches of each plant. During this workshop led by Peter Bethune, learn how to use plants, shrubs, and trees from your back yard to create beautiful bonsai. They last for many years and can even be passed down through generations.
