Workshops and Classes
We have been running our bonsai classes or workshops for the past twenty-nine years at Herons, and they have been the source of inspiration for many bonsai enthusiasts. The sessions are run by Peter and his team and are held two or three times a month.

All our classes are hands on sessions for all abilities, ranging from beginner to advanced levels. You can learn any aspect of bonsai from one of the country's recognised Masters.
Each class lasts 4 hours - From 11am to 4pm with an hour's break for lunch.

We offer a choice of Courses to cater for all abilities. Excellent value considering what you can learn in just a short while.

New dates are posted on our web site each month. You can book a course On-line or over the phone.

Our workshops teach you all you need to know about a particular subject from - how to care for various species  to how create them from ordinary trees and shrubs.
Our most recent introduction is the semi-trained material workshop. At these workshops you pay an all in price to include the  plant material, a pot, all the wires you need and complete tuition.

Peter also does special 1-2-1 lessons for those who would like individual tuition. Please contact Peter direct for details.

If you have a problem tree or would like to have advice on styling or any aspect of bonsai, Peter often gives his time and advice free of charge. Please feel free to contact him.
 
For those who would like a more intensive course, we  have the facilities for this as well. These residential courses are especially popular with visitors from abroad.
If you are interested in this - please contact us by e-mail or  by phone.

Here is what some one said about our class very recently - ' Dear Mr. Chan, I took part in one of your workshop/classes with my mother and sister on Sunday 16th August. I thoroughly enjoyed the class and feel as though my passion for bonsai was lifted even higher on the day!' Jonathan B 18 August
