Welcome to my bonsai intensive calendar for 2024.  Last year I operated 2 locations in LA, located at Yamaguchi Bonsai Nursey and in North Hollywood. The LA groups will now be consolidated into one location, at my private garden located in Arcadia. These intensives are $80/session and run from 9 AM – 2 PM. I require advance RSVP and I cap the number of members.

Currently my San Diego groups are fully booked. If you’d like to join a waiting list for San Diego, please contact me privately via the contact form on my website.

In these intensives I follow these simple principles in the following order:

1) First all work is driven by the health of a tree. As a living art, if a tree dies it ceases to be bonsai. Horticulture and health is the basis for all work.
2) If a tree is healthy it is able to respond to different bonsai based techniques. We can leverage techniques to develop a tree, create branching, and generate predictable responses.
3) With great horticulture and technique, we can pursue art and realize different aesthetic visions or philosophical concepts of bonsai.

If you are interested in participating contact me via my site or my email julian.tsai96@gmail.com. Thank you for your support.
