Peter Warren explains the art of bonsai cultivation in two drop-in sessions, while demonstrating with live trees. Warren talks through his own experience as a bonsai professional, from his time as an apprentice in Japan, while giving an outline of bonsai history, tree varieties and styles, and practical maintenance and care.
Japan House plays host to a number of bonsai trees in the cultural retail space on the ground floor during the first few weeks of opening.
About Peter Warren
After completing a traditional six-year apprenticeship in Japan under his master, Mr. KOBAYASHI Kunio at his world famous nursery in Tokyo at the Shunkaen Bonsai Museum, Peter WARREN returned to the UK and settled in London, creating a bonsai studio and nursery of his very own.
Since then he has travelled far and wide, teaching and working with bonsai collectors and enthusiasts across the globe, on a mission to elevate the art of bonsai. His work has been exhibited at the highest level in Japan, the USA and across Europe – and now at Japan House London.
Japan House London opened to the public on Friday 22 June 2018. See the bonsai on display until Sunday 15 July or attend the bonsai talk on 14 July. Entry is free.
