Welcome to the Carlos van der Vaart Bonsai School

At the Carlos van der Vaart Bonsai school the lessons are taught in an informal manner in a casual, relaxing setting. The focus is on understanding the art, the traditional way, botanic and horticulture knowledge and above creating quality bonsai.

All bonsai enthusiasts have their own goals, we will help you to learn how to gain quality and progress on your trees and work, how to make the right choices on your tree and also on raw material, to find the tree in a tree.

Mostly the lessons are given by Open Workshops, this means that students provide their own personal trees, raw material or bonsai for starting new projects, styling, refinement, re-potting, maintenance or further development or simply talk about bonsai.

Any topical issues on general principles and refinement can be discussed. These classes are for everyone and generate a great atmosphere. Learn not just from your own material, but also from your fellow students.

Students of all experience are welcome!
