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.
