Continuing to promote this event here and within your bonsai clubs, just wanted to highlight a limited participant event if you want to get in early for this one.

Friday 20 July 2018 Private Master Class

If you’ve ever wanted to spend a whole day working on your bonsai under the guidance of a bonsai professional in Bjorn Bjorholm, with no distractions from observers, then this is your chance. Geared to more advanced bonsai enthusiasts with advanced bonsai material, this option is available to only 8 participants and runs on Friday from 9am to 5pm and includes lunch. Get in early for these limited positions to work directly with Bjorn.

Thanks
David

Hype Hype Hype!

I like Bjorn's style (In Bonsai and Life) I get the impression from his youtube contributions that he's a great ambassador for future generations.

For those that haven't tuned into his online correspondence check here: https://www.youtube.com/user/bjorvalabonsai
One of the fabulous things about growing bonsai is as you get old and decrepit your trees get old and beautiful

agree with Mr Garcia, I learned a lot in Brisbane this year.

I think you need to add an easy to find link on your facebook page though...

In 1.5hrs he'll barely "chip" the mould :imo: .
Gather your resources well Mr treeman, a new audience awaits, and we are hungry....

I also agree that Treeman's presentation is going to be amazing. I can't wait to be slapped with some of Mike's Bonsai wisdom in person for a change :yes:

Dont go forgetting​ on top of Mike's presentation being shown on the Saturday, there will also be not only one but TWO solo demonstrations by international bonsai artist, Bjorn Bjorholm.

There will also be an additional third demonstration by Bjorn, being simultaneously executed with the local talent of Joe Morgan-Payler (This I cannot wait for! :aussie: ).

Not to mention further time slots allocated for the opening ceremony, raffles and awards, the AABC general meeting as well as the official conversation sitdown dinner.

And that's all just on the Saturday too. An amazing day of Bonsai to be had :IMO: and that's not even including the other three days of the convention.

Cheers,
Pearcy.
