Our classes are hands-on and inclusive for all abilities. The student will learn to wire, shape and pot a Bonsai to take home at the end of the day. All material is provided and the instructor will take each student through the process (tree, pot, tools, wire, potting medium).

Comprehensive notes outlining the course are provided, however note taking and sketching is encouraged. Students that already own bonsai are welcome to bring their trees to the class for suggestions and critique.

Classes are $180 AUD and are available to purchase in our online store. This price includes hard copy notes plus your own tree and pot to take away.

"What an amazing experience! I would do this workshop over and over and over again!...Such an authentic workshop run by amazing people who genuinely love and are passionate about bonsai trees." - Jemima B.


One-on-one Bonsai lessons are available for those who are interested in improving their trees and knowledge at the same time. Typically, a student will bring their Bonsai (or Bonsai stock) to the Nursery and together we will design (or redesign) the tree.

Any level of experience is welcome. Wire and tools are included in the lesson.

To book a private lesson please contact the nursery at nursery@chojo.com.au or call Jeff on 0434 622 565.
