About the teacher:

Bradford Slama is a self taught bonsai enthusiast who has a passion for sharing the knowledge that he has gained. Bradford initially came across bonsai because he wanted something more than a house plant in his windowless office. It turns out bonsai are very difficult to keep indoors, so he turned his driveway into a small bonsai garden. He learned most of what he knows about bonsai from books and from club members in California, and brought his trees with him when he moved to Chattanooga almost a year ago.
