WALTER PALL BONSAI ACADEMY OKTOBERFEST AT THE HIDDEN GARDENS

Post  kevin stoeveken on Wed Oct 12, 2016 6:35 pm

I attended all 3 days of this event in Willowbrook Illinois this past weekend...

my comments at the end of this post from Walter's blog says it all for me:

http://walter-pall-bonsai.blogspot.de/2016/10/int-bonsai-academy-at-hidden-gardens_12.html

you can see 2 more pages of pictures from the Hidden Gardens event by clicking "older posts" at the bottom of the page...
there are also pages for the same event in Boulder Co

if you see this event coming to your area, I highly recommend it for anyone from 1st year novice to long time vet.
(plus you never know who will pop in... Chris Baker, the curator of the Chicago collection stopped by and I was fortunate enough to meet him and discuss design)



(i will be posting my own photos from the event on the AAC blog, when i get more time)

I looked these pictures over real well on the blog.
You are missing one vital part of your bonsai wardrobe.
You know what I'm talking about. Unless you gave them to Walter.

Will Walter be returning ??? What is the cost...???
Maybe Frary and I could get together on this, I'm in Plymouth near Detroit and he is UpState , Mt Pleasant or Clare...I think...It could be a good thing.

this year was 220 for all 3 days, or i believe 85 per day.

go to their website and sign up for their mailing list and you will be emailed about that and other events

Still 2 hours north of that.
But I plan using every vacation day next year for bonsai related activities.
Hoping to spend a few of those at Vances and the rest for shows and what not.

perhaps some of AACers could meet up with you at vances ?
if he will have us that is Wink

if there is a campground or a truck stop or a empty field or the back of an adult book store near-by,
that would be all that i need for overnites as i am a fully self contained rolling unit...
(except for facilities for the daily constitutional)

I'm sure we could come up with something.
Vance and I just had a couple very nice procumbens junipers given to us from a friend at the nationals.
They are 30 years old. Part of a shipment slated for workshops there. Vance got to pick the first 2 before anyone else. We're going to tear into them next spring/early summer.
Just talked to Vance yesterday. He is out of the action for a while. He jacked his right arm and shoulder up a few days ago.
