Peter Warren explains the art of bonsai cultivation in two drop-in sessions, while demonstrating with live trees. Warren talks through his own experience as a bonsai professional, from his time as an apprentice in Japan, while giving an outline of bonsai history, tree varieties and styles, and practical maintenance and care.
Japan House plays host to a number of bonsai trees in the cultural retail space on the ground floor during the first few weeks of opening.
Warren will also be available to sign copies of his book, ‘Bonsai’ published by Dorling Kindersley and available in The Shop at Japan House.
