Please support us in our next adventure.....

 

We are currently looking at a new premises where we will be able to accommodate groups of up to 20 people at workshops throughout the year, once this is up and runnning later this year we will be increasing the number of courses we run and the subject matter we will be covering.

This move will be costing us a considerable amount of money and so are going to be launching a crowd funding page in the next few weeks.  In return for donations towards the development of the new site we will be offering a good selection of rewards including places on our new courses.

As part of our opening of a new workshop and nursery sales site we will be running courses in some of the following bonsai related subjects.
