Bonkei is an artistic representation of a mature tree that suggests a scene in nature. South Africa has a rich tradition in this art form and has developed its own style of bonkei that is recognised abroad. We were also one of the first countries outside the East to start growing its own bonkei with local species.

Come and join this workshop with Willem Pretorius as host and learn how to create your own bonkei. Several different styles will be on show and you will learn how to prune, care for and maintain bonkei.
Lunch will be served at the Greenhouse Restaurant and is included in the price.
