Welcome to my 2023 class calendar page! Currently I operate 3 study groups located in West LA, North Hollywood, and Oak Park San Diego. There will be 5-7 themed sessions spread throughout the year at each of these locations. The San Diego and North Hollywood groups will be run in a full day workshop format, while the West LA group at Yamaguchi Bonsai Nursey will offer a morning and afternoon session. Please see the “event” description for cost and more details. If you are interested in participating contact me via my site or my email julian.tsai96@gmail.com. Thank you for your support.

The third study group session for North Hollywood will be run on June 10th. Session cost is $100–please RSVP with me to secure your slot! The group is capped at 7 slots, a $50 deposit is required to reserve your position.

We’re transitioning into the start of early summer, hopefully temperatures aren’t too hot! At this time of year we can work on pines–decandling (if in refinement), cut backs, as well wiring if decandled. In addition to pine work, this is the last call for major deciduous/broadleaf work before temperatures ramp up too much in the summer. Meaning defoliation, shoot selection, wiring, and thread grafting. Junipers should be lignified from their spring growth, so we can wire those as well.
