A miniature landscape, penjing can be traced back to seventh-century China. Over the next 1,200 years, penjing developed into a highly skilled art form that was transported to Japan where it became known as the art of bonsai and known throughout the world.
Using artificially dwarfed trees and shrubs, these arrangements are created in special trays or pots which are placed on ornately carved wooden stands. The same design principles used in the classical Chinese garden apply to the art of penjing.
You can now register to learn about those principles and the art of pruning, summer care, repotting and more from the Master Gardener, Pin Lee. Bring your own plants and pots, or purchase some at the workshop. Soil and tools provided.
