Root Over Rock Bonsai

Wednesday, April 18, 2018, 6 – 9 p.m.

$49/$39.20

New! Root over rock is a unique and naturally occurring event in nature. Tree roots grow along and in rock crevices searching for water and nutrients. The roots attach to the rock and continue to grow as the tree ages. In this workshop, we will take a tree and attach it to a rock so the roots will take hold. You may either bring your own tree and rock, or we will provide them for you for an additional fee of $69. You will leave the workshop having taken the first and most important step in the process. Instructions on how to continue in the season ahead will be provided. Don’t miss the chance to add an eye-catching bonsai to your collection.
