Bonsai Intensive & Workshop July 1-3 2022

Bimer Bonsai Club is proud to present the Bonsai Intensive and Workshop. Designed to improve the knowledge and skills of members through intense species-specific modules.


The purpose of Bonsai Intensive is to share the knowledge and passion of bonsai at a species level. With detailed information, background, examples and explaining how a bonsai hobbyist would develop their own bonsai in that species. Then workshop your own trees.


The underlying concept is to create an event with an intensive focus on specific plant species and plant varieties for bonsai. For specialist or passionate hobbyists to share the end-to-end process of developing world class bonsai for that species. They then work on their trees.
