An extensive show of Welsh trees, these will be judged in three classes.

3-3.45 Questions and answers with the artists

Sat evening meal at the Scots pine

Sun 25th 10-11 Meet and greet

All the seminars are aimed at techniques and not at producing a tree image on the day, the 45 min slots will ensure that neither the artists or audience will get bored. It will also give everyone something to look forward to hour by hour thought out the weekend finishing with the QandA at the end of each day

Yes Chris I can only echo Lewis' comments, it was such a great weekend with so much information freely given by experts in such a relaxed atmosphere.
Chris - it must of been good to get me posting instead of lurking all this time!!

Hi Chris,
My highlight was getting to share so much quality time with so many bonsai friends.

I was moved by what I saw.
What a majestic sight, the snowy white contrasting against the coarse rugged black.
The fine time earned curves that danced throughout the rolling, hard won and weather-beaten, yet powerful image.



The blackthorn wasn't bad either Rolling Eyes


Thank you Chris for all your passion and unstoppable enthusiasm for all things bonsai and for bring it all together into such a positive environment.
