Bonsai Empire and Bjorn Bjorholm launch the Bonsai Beginner’s Course today. The online course demystifies the ancient art of Bonsai, finally making this fascinating hobby accessible to a wide audience - see

Bonsai is deeply rooted in Japanese Zen-Buddhism, and has been around for hundreds of years. Bonsai is a living art form. The trees transform from season to season and from year to year. A Bonsai is never “done”.

To many, the art of Bonsai is as beautiful as it is mysterious. The variety of traditions and techniques that were developed to create these miniature trees make it an inaccessible hobby. Students need an understanding of the artistic aspect of Bonsai, as well as of the botanical aspect. Never before was a course developed that covers these aspects from the very first step, until now.

“Bonsai is a living art form, as such, it is never done.” - Bjorn Bjorholm

In the online course the teachers introduce the historical and cultural backgrounds of Bonsai, but their focus is on explaining the most important techniques step-by-step. Everything they do is practically oriented; they assist students in growing and styling their very own Bonsai tree. No green thumbs required, anyone can enroll and start their journey into Bonsai art!

The course is taught by two experienced teachers. Bjorn is a Bonsai professional who studied for over six years while living in Japan, apprenticing under the famous master Keiichi Fujikawa. Oscar is author of the bestseller “Bonsai, a beginners guide” and owner of Bonsai Empire.

“Ancient art demystified.” - Oscar, Bonsai Empire
