Bonsai is a living art form that has been practised in Asia for nearly 1,700 years. It is the art form of creating the illusion of nature or the illusion of a single mature tree in a pot.

Growing and maintaining bonsai is a very rewarding and calming hobby. Most Bonsai trees can outlive any human if properly cared for. A tree for a lifetime- it is an art form that grows with you and transcends generations.

In this 3.5 hour workshop, you will learn about the secrets of Bonsai and learn how to create and maintain them. You will walk away with a completed Bonsai that (with the right care) will last a lifetime.


My name is Austen Kosasih and I am the owner of the company Bonsai Kyogei. The first form of Bonsai that I saw was a Japanese Maple Bonsai and I was instantly in love with it. The Japanese Maple has always been my favourite tree. In Japan, I would spend hours just sitting under a Maple tree enjoying the autumn scene when the leaves turn red and yellow.

Starting off, I learnt about bonsai through books and videos. Eventually, I started learning from a Bonsai Master who practiced in Aichi-en Bonsai nursery in Nagoya, Japan. In this fast-paced modern age of urbanisation, I am determined that Bonsai can be a path to peace and calmness. Bonsai is an excellent way of having a “piece of nature” at home.

I loved the workshop... my first ever class to learn about bonsai and I felt very rewarded with the outcome. I brought home my very own beautiful bonsai that I designed... with a little help. The instructor was very helpful and knowledgeable. Thank you.
