Bonsai: Generations of Growth

For over 20 years, mother and son duo Megumi and Alex Bennett have been cultivating and teaching the Japanese art form of bonsai.

In their new exhibition Bonsai: Generations of Growth, you can see their uniquely Australian creations and learn about creating your own bonsai as well.

Sophie spoke to Alex about the philosophy of bonsai and what Australian specimens are great for growing at home.

Bonsai: Generations of Growth, Japan Foundation, Central Park (Lvl 4), Chippendale, April 30 – May 5, free. Bonsai Basics (Demonstration & Exhibition Opening), May 1, 6pm.
