The Art of Bonsai – Volunteer to learn Bonsai

3 July @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm AEST

About Event:

 

Chenrezig Institute is happy to introduce Jeffrey Reed , a regular student at CI who started practising bonsai thirty years ago. 

Jeff will be working on bonsais every Wednesday morning outside the Art Studio. He welcomes anyone interested in volunteering some time to help him in exchange for learning the Art of Bonsai.

Jeff has set up ‘Maleny Bonsai’ which is a self help group of people interested in the art of bonsai  from learners to advanced. The advanced members give advice and help  with the development of your tree. These practical sessions have participants do the work so they learn and understand  through experience.

Jeff recently put in a proposal to the CI management committee that we set up a Bonsai Garden here in Chenrezig Institute, a tranquil space for prayer, meditation, and reflection. The idea has been met with enthusiasm and we have started to put the wheels in motion. 

These sessions are free of charge and open to anyone with an interest in learning about the art of bonsai, as well as those interested in getting involved in volunteering the creation of the Bonsai Garden at Chenrezig Institute.
