Pete Inglis started collecting and growing bonsai in 1992 although it has only been in the past 7 years that his passion has really grown. The inspiration came from his father John who gave him an old Chinese Elm. Pete is interested in working with Australian native trees and experimenting with new forms to create interesting pieces. He has won many awards at the Albany Agricultural Show and recently has participated in workshops with renowned international bonsai artists, Pavel Slovak and Tony Tickle.


Bonsai is a Japanese term which literally translated means, ‘planted in container’. In this course with Pete Inglis you will learn the basic techniques to start your own bonsai tree. Working on your own tree to take home, you will learn the basic bonsai styles, pruning and wiring techniques and how to maintain your tree. A visit to a local nursery will be included.
