‘The Art of Bonsai: For Beginners’ hosted by Modern Clay

A unique course combining bonsai and pottery.

Join Modern Clay and Tree In A Pot’s Andy Baker for a curated course in bonsai tree and pot making.

Learn about tree work and the theory behind this with bonsai specialist Andy Baker. He will also impart his knowledge on plant feeding and cover some of the science behind this. Attendants will get access to Modern Clay studio to make a clay pot for their bonsai tree, and later glaze the pot to create a special finish. Lastly, the course will be wrapped up by planting the bonsai in the finished clay pots.
