There are many reasons to visit the Grape Discovery Center in Westfield. You can purchase works from local artisans and peruse the Center's large array of grape themed gifts from soaps to apparel to grape flavored popcorn.

You can spend time relaxing at their Tasting Bar or on the Steve Baran Memorial Patio where you can sample several of the local wines and craft brews from the surrounding area. You can even walk through the interactive Star Family Exhibit Room to learn about the history of grape growing in the Lake Erie region.

And now there is one more reason to take some time out of your weekend to stop by for a visit to the Grape Discovery Center: The Art of Bonsai for Beginners. The class, taught by Westfield resident Trenton Lutes, is a two hour experience where you will learn about the history of bonsai as well as the styles and techniques of bonsai trees. All while creating your very own bonsai tree. Lutes, a bonsai enthusiast, has been working with bonsai for almost six years and truly enjoys sharing the art of bonsai with others. "This will be my seventh class since I started offering them about a year ago," Lutes states, "and each time the students create amazing trees that never cease to impress."
