I personally study under the instructor of this course, Bjorn Bjorholm.  Bjorn is one of the leading bonsai professionals in the world and studied in Japan for 9 years prior to opening his own Nursery here in America.  Bjorn and Bonsai Empire knocked it out of the park with both the basic and intermediate bonsai courses.  These are excellent video courses with solid advice.                   - Andy Youtz, President Superfly Bonsai

Bonsai is an art-form that has been around for thousands of years. Although it's a highly rewarding hobby, too often it is seen as difficult and steeped in tradition. We teach you the basics of Bonsai in this course using video-tutorials, text guides and a quiz. Everything we do is practically oriented; we assist you in growing and styling your very own Bonsai tree.

Eager to grow a Bonsai tree yourself? Stop hesitating and use this course to get a taste of this fascinating hobby! Really, you can do this without any prior knowledge or even green thumbs!

For $29.99 you get unlimited access to the online course, without any recurring fees or hidden costs. Make sure to watch a free lecture in the curriculum below!

  • Master the essential Bonsai techniques
  • Acquire new skills and an understanding of this living art
  • We assist you in growing your very own Bonsai tree

Excellent survey

I used this course as a refresher for fundamentals. While I'm not a bonsai master, I am not an absolute beginner, so my perspective may differ from someone with no experience. The course systematically presents foundation information in a digestible format and quizzes understanding so that the viewer can go back and view anything that he/she didn't fully grasp. The videography shows techniques well as the narrator describes what he's doing. Thumbs up!
