Workshops and Classes 

Whether you are new to Bonsai, looking to extend your existing skill set or looking for other enthisiasts to share your passion then our workshops may be just the ticket. 

Our 'General Bonsai Workshops’ include everything that you need; whether it be wiring, repotting, training or general care. These 
Workshops are very popular and we usually run two a month. The courses are facilitated by members of the Herons team or Peter Chan. 

Half Day Workshops (usually held on a Wednesday) start at 10am and conclude around 1pm and cost £49.

Full Day Workshops (usually held at the weekend) starts at 10am finish around 4pm 

Feel free to arrive earlier if you wish (and we are open) to have a look round our 7 Acre Nursery and Japanese garden. Alternatively you can stay on afterwards to have a look around (gates close at 4pm on Sunday)

You are welcome to bring your own (small) bonsai tree if you wish to work on it or if you would like any advice (please note it may not be possible to advise on more than one tree on the workshop).

We have ample on-site parking and washroom facilities. We also have good disabled access.

For a full list of our courses and how to book please see below. 

We look forward to welcoming you to Herons in the near future.
