Immerse Yourself In An Exotic Art With Bonsai Classes

Master an ancient art in the bonsai classes from Rosade Bonsai in New Hope, Pennsylvania. Located in the rolling hills of historic Bucks County, our bonsai studio was established in 1970 to raise awareness of this delicate and beautiful art form. After bonsai study and training in Japan, Chase Rosade started teaching bonsai classes in 1964. He and his wife Solita run the day-to-day activities of the studio. For more than 40 years, Chase has been a major exhibitor and speaker at the Philadelphia Flower Show, one of the largest indoor flower display shows in the world.

Classes

Classes are designed to educate the beginning bonsai student or to perfect the techniques of the more advanced student. Workshops are designed for the continuation and improvement of the students' techniques and success in growing healthy, beautiful trees. Students may work on their own trees or projects or create new bonsai. Bonsai, pre-bonsai stock, containers, and soil are all available. Our garden has bonsai on display in the spring, summer and fall, both for viewing and for sale. Our newsletter, Bonsai No Satori, is available on the website and by email with updated information on new class dates and events.
