Prairie State Bonsai Society
The Art of Bonsai
10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
4100 Illinois Route 53
Buy a book about bonsai and conduct research on the internet.
Start at the beginning:
Don’t buy the most expensive tools or materials to begin with. Start with a set of beginning bonsai scissors.
Learn from others:
Take a class, such as the Prairie State Bonsai Society workshops available at our show at the Morton Arboretum. Join a bonsai club and benefit from other members experience.
Don’t get discouraged if your first tree does not survive. Remember this is a learning process. Even bonsai masters have trees that die.
