Last spring, the Milwaukee Bonsai Society opened a new exhibition garden at Lynden. We will learn about the ancient ideals that inform Japanese aesthetics--and are employed in art, gardening, and daily life--while observing these principles in action at the bonsai pavilion and among some of Lynden’s Japanese sculptures. We will also practice suminagashi, a traditional Japanese form of paper marbling practiced not only as a craft but as a form of self-discipline, concentration, and control of unpredictable elements. Combining text and image, we will write haiku to describe our experience.

Registration deadline for all Homeschool Days is one week prior. Space is limited, please register early.
Dress appropriately for the weather; much time will be spent outdoors in all seasons.
