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 Bonsai at Lynden, as well as hands-on workshops for all-ages.

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. In this hands-on workshop, you and your child will learn the basic principles and techniques of bonsai design, creating your very own bonsai from tropical material and transplanting it into a ceramic bonsai container.

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.
