Bonsai Experience Days

Graham Potter


"Bonsai is a fascinating hobby with many facets"

As a hobby it offers us the chance to connect with nature in a very intimate and personal way. In todays manic society it gives us a chance to get away and connect with the ancient rhythms of life that drive our planet.


Our bonsai experience days are tailored to your individual needs.

Whether you would just like to view the magic of very old bonsai trees and understand their history or get to grips with special material we can help. Whatever your level of bonsai knowledge and experience spending a day with us is going to be an eye opener.

Getting to grips with bonsai is a simple and very rewarding process. There is a wealth of information available today but sadly much of it is poor, ill conceived and sometimes even entirely erroneous. We believe that learning from an experienced artist and teacher is VERY important. After all that's how we learn most things at the outset whether it's the three Rs at school or advanced mathematics at University. Sadly many folk do not follow the same path in bonsai and most end up frustrated and disillusioned after several years and walk away.


Bonsai for Beginners - An Immensely Rewarding Hobby

Bonsai is an immensely rewarding hobby that becomes a lifetime passion for many people. Getting a good start is important to ultimate success. The help and guidance of an experienced teacher is invaluable and will all but guarantee long term success. Why spend years in a frustrating cycle of experimentation yielding patchy results? Working with an experienced teacher will save much anguish whilst dramatically shortening the time it takes to master this fascinating art form.

Whether you are an absolute beginner or have many years experience, we guarantee that working with Graham will be an enlightening and fulfilling experience. Graham's level of enthusiasm will leave you inspired to go and achieve more than you thought possible.
