At Lynden, we think of bonsai as one of the most intriguing intersections of art and nature. This is why we have joined with the Milwaukee Bonsai Society to host some of their exhibitions and informal showings of bonsai, as well as hands-on workshops.

A bonsai is a living sculpture, changing from day to day, season to season, and year to year. Creating and caring for a bonsai combines the principles of design with the science of horticulture; it develops an appreciation for the world of trees and the world of three-dimensional artmaking. This workshop is designed to introduce you to the exciting world of bonsai: you'll get your feet wet (and your hands dirty) creating your very own bonsai and transplanting it into a ceramic bonsai container under the watchful eyes of experienced Bonsai Society members.

The Milwaukee Bonsai Society, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping individuals in their efforts to increase their knowledge and skills in the art of bonsai.
