Make a Bonsai Tree
Reviewed by maricruz d. on 9/13/2022
There was no "make a bonsai class". The instructor did not have the materials, he offered us a free class on how to make a terrarium using a succulent. Also when we got there the door was closed with a note instructing us to enter the code to open the door, according to the note on the door, the code was emailed to me along with the confirmation receipt purchase, but there was no entry door code in the email sent to me. There was also no phone listed on the receipt, it took us 15-20 minutes to get in contact with the place and get the door code to enter the building. Over all it was an awful experience. I will use my gift certificate and attend the "make a bonsai tree" some time soon, but after that I will not be coming back.

The Make a Bonsai class at the Color Cocktail Factory in Pilsen was pretty cool. The venue was lively on a Saturday night, with multiple classes happening simultaneously. Everybody seemed to be enjoying themselves. The instructors were all friendly and helpful (maybe spread a little thin though). My partner and I enjoyed our class as well. It was an interesting way to get creative, enjoy a few beers, and go home with a tiny tree. They imparted us with the skills to make more bonsai (if I fail to keep this round alive). I'd recommend the class. You will get a little dirty and poke your fingers some though, fyi.
