If you are local to the San Francisco Bay Area, or planning a trip to the area, you are invited to join us for in-person workshops. Eric teaches all workshops and classes. Looking for a team-building workshop? Check out our options here.

Group Workshops - $60 per 4-hour session, limited to 4 students. Group workshops are best for people who enjoy working on their material and want guidance on aesthetic decisions and seasonal tasks. For group classes you will bring your own plants to class.

Individual Instruction -(In Person) $150 for up to 2 hours of instruction. Individual instruction is well suited to beginning students who want a jump start on growing, and enthusiasts who prefer to work one-on-one with Eric or to observe while  Eric works on their material.

For each type of class, work is seasonally appropriate. Please bring: wire, turntable, tools, and materials. We have a small supply of tools and materials on-hand that we can lend and sell. If you don't have tools please let us know in advance, or place an order on the site for local pick-up.

Remote/Video Consulation - we are not currently offering remote consultation.

Drop-Off Bonsai Tree Styling - These are client services for those wanting maintenance on their trees. $50 per hour, plus materials and supplies, typical turnaround is 5-7 days, most trees are styled in 1 hour or less, please drop us an email from the contact page rather than using the booking app below.
