Bonsai for Beginners Workshop - CLASS FULL

February 22 


10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., Magnolia Room

Garvan Horticulturist Bryan Carlan leads a workshop for beginning bonsai gardeners. Bryan will discuss plant selection, container and materials sources, and techniques for producing a bonsai specimen that will endure the years. Each participant will leave with a potted bonsai style tree.

Japanese Maple Grafting Workshop

February 24 


10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., Magnolia Room

Arkansas native Larry Morphew presents an informative session on Japanese maples and grafting techniques. Most Japanese maples sold commercially have been grafted. Grafting is a very old method of reproducing plants, especially those that are difficult to grow from seed and cuttings. Japanese maple falls into this category. Growing Japanese maple cultivars from seed is difficult, since the tree’s flowers openly pollinate, this means that they accept pollen from most other maples in the area. Given this, you can never be certain that the resulting seedling will have the same looks and qualities as the desired cultivar.

Following the presentation, Larry will assist participants with producing their very own grafted specimens. Rootstock, scion (plant with the desired characteristics), and grafting tools are provided.

Mosaic-Making Workshop - CLASS FULL

February 27 - February 28 2018


10:00 a.m.– 4:00 p.m., Magnolia Room

Back by popular demand! Local artist and Garvan staff member Suzie Burch presents a two-day creative workshop. Each participant will design and create a dimensional mosaic birdhouse art piece.

Following the principal, “One person’s trash is another’s treasure,” mosaic art can be made by up cycling materials often found at the flea market or the neighborhood yard sale. While all materials are provided, students are encouraged to bring old trinkets, stones, and other pieces of “junk” that they would like to include in their finished piece of art!

Day one will find students designing and placing pieces. Day two will allow students to grout and cure the finished product.
