About the event

BlackRoot Farms is joining Double Shift Brewing Company to warm up them cold bones with some beer-drinking and branch bending! Whether you're just getting started on your bonsai journey, or just looking for an excuse to drink a beer and bend a branch, come have one on the house and take something home you won't regret!

What to expect

   1. Check in, grab a beer, and pick out your bonsai (1st Beer is on the house!)

   2. Brief introduction to the art of bonsai, tree basics, and bonsai care (~25 minutes).

   3. Demonstration of bonsai pruning and wiring (~20 minutes).

   4. Get a refill! And then start pruning and wiring your tree with our help!

   5. Stick around for another round, then take your new bonsai home!

Ticket Information:

We offer two ticket options:

 - Skinny Mini ($50) - Dip your toes into bonsai with a younger, thinner tree. 

 - The Thickness ($75) - Dive into bonsai head first with a thicker, more mature tree. 

Both options includes include the educational rambling by yours truly, the styling and wiring/pruning demonstration, your first beer, training wire/tools, and of course, a bonsai tree! While gloves are provided, feel to bring your own!

Tree Availability

Durring winter months while our outdoor trees are hibernating, we bring a selection of tropical/indoor species for you to select from, including Portulacaria afra (Dwarf Jade), Ficus benjamina (Weeping Ficus), Ficus microcarpa (Chinese Banyan), Schefflera (Umbrella Tree), and more! Availability of species and sizes vary at each event as we bring new species and cultivars in, and grow them thicker! Feel free to reach out to inquire about which trees will be available at the next workshop!

While we accept walk-ins, we limit our workshops to 16 attendees, so get you're tickets in advance!

Please arrive 10 minutes early so we can start on time!
