The Bonsai Group has been thriving for the past 24 years.
Bonsai Art Class is held at the Centre on the 1st Wednesday and 3rd Thursday of every month.
There will be a display of native and exotic bonsai trees, as well as trees in training prepared by members of the group.
Meryl Miller of the Port Stephens Community Arts Centre told News Of The Area, “Many of these trees have been worked on for years and are miniatures of landscape giants.”
