Join Vancouver Japanese Gardeners Association members to learn about the history, essence, and concepts behind Kare-San-Sui or Japanese dry rock gardens. In this hands-on workshop, participants will receive all the materials needed to make their own dry rock garden. Expert gardeners Tim Nishibata, Hiro Okusa, Kumpei Wakino, and Toshiyuki Izawa will lead an interactive lecture, sharing their expertise in landscaping dry rock gardens in commercial and private spaces. Then, participants can experiment with their new knowledge of dry rock gardens by arranging their own. Our gardeners will be sharing tips and techniques along the way! Experience the joy, serenity, and mindfulness through this Zen exercise. All materials will be provided, but participants are encouraged to bring their rocks for their garden. Ideal rocks would be 2-3 inches in size and irregular versus round and smooth.

The Museum honors our relationship with all of our Coast Salish neighbors and our shared responsibilities to their homeland where we all reside today.
