Kusamura at Filoli
May 21, 2022 @ 11:00 am – 4:00 pm
As part of Filoli’s Bonsai Exhibit during the month of May, Kusamura will be doing a special event featuring demonstrations, hands-on activities and a sale of bonsai trees and pots.
Demonstrations by club members will show how bonsai are repotted and styled. Filoli visitors can get close and see some of the basics of bonsai.
One of the methods of shaping a bonsai is by using wire to guide the movement of branches. At the hands-on area you can try this out and see how easy it cam be to make a straight branch into something twisted and gnarled – like you might see on an old tree.
Bonsai trees and pots will be available for sale
Filoli visitors are invited to bring photos of bonsai and ask for advice.
You cannot bring a tree to Filoli for this event but you can bring your tree to a future club meeting and get advice.
