Time Out Love Tokyo Lounge : Bonsai workshop


As part of our Time Out Love Tokyo Lounge programme, we'll also be hosting a bonsai workshop. We've enlisted the help of a proper tree specialist-come-landscape artist who has hosted countless bonsai-making classes in cafés and restaurants across the capital. There are two different sessions you can join, both dealing with distinct types of palm-sized foliage. The morning group will use 'Nirekeyaki', a type of Chinese elm, while the afternoon group will use 'Sarukoiashi', a hatiora (a type of forest cactus – don't worry, not a sharp one).

During the class, you'll learn the basics of bonsai step by step, plus how to create a nice scenery by pruning the elm or adding in stones with the hatiora. You can take the finished product home, but do note that the elm is an outdoor plant, while the hatiora is an indoor species.

The class will be held in Japanese, but Time Out Tokyo staff will be on hand to interpret between English and Japanese. Sign up in advance through our online form, and if you have any questions, direct them to info@timeout.jp (subject line 'Bonsai workshop').

タイムアウト東京がプロデュースするポップアップラウンジ『Time Out Love Tokyo Lounge』にて、訪日外国人や東京在住の外国人に向けた盆栽のワークショップが開催される。講師を務めるのは、都内のカフェやレストランで盆栽作りの教室を行ってきた植木職人の「草むしり」。

今回は、午前の部はニレケヤキ、午後の部は多肉植物のサルコイアシを使った手のひらサイズの盆栽作りを行う。レクチャー では、盆栽とはなにかといった初歩的な説明や、景色を演出するためコツとしてニレケヤキは剪定を、サルコイアシは石を据える工程を取り入れた盆栽作りを行う。完成品は持ち帰ることができるが、ニレケヤキ盆栽は屋外管理、多肉盆栽は屋内管理となる点は注意されたい。レクチャーは日本語で行われ、タイムアウト東京のスタッフによる英語通訳も同時に行われる。問い合わせはinfo@timeout.jpまで。
