The Plant Provocateur Workshops for 2018 continue with the return of Master Woodcarver Yo Takimoto and his meditative Japanese Woodcarving Workshop.  Yo teaches the meditative art of Japanese Kikezuri Woodcarving.  The art of Kikezuri asks the participant to leave their intentions behind and allow the wood's nature to emerge as you carve.  It's a very relaxing and surprisingly soothing process.  If you haven't experienced this amazing workshop...here's your chance!  A brilliant way to de-stress and decompress.

Workshop participants are provided with wood at the time of the workshop, tools for carving, and instruction.  You make and take what you carve.  The workshop session is limited to 6 people.  Class fee is $65 which includes all materials and instruction.  Workshop session takes place on the patio at The Plant Provocateur.  Event is 3 hours long.  Tickets are available through the 'SHOP' menu above.
