This event was held from 25 to 31 March 2019 and this year featured two international guest bonsai artists, Heike van Gunst and Sanrda Grlica from Germany.
I was lucky enough to attend a few activities during the week. The bonsai discussion forum and critique with the international artists kicked off my activities and this was well attended and gave the audience a great insight into the artists.
This was followed up with “Bonsai After Hours – Women in Bonsai” which included a demonstration by both artists. There are a couple of photos from the demonstrations but the lighting wasn’t conducive to photography so you must excuse these. Also during the night there were a few auctions where you could pick up a bargain or two, an opportunity to view the National Bonsai & Penjing Collection under lights as well as enjoy a few canapes and drinks while being entertained.
I also had the opportunity to partake in a workshop with both artists but those details will be for another post soon. For now a few photos from the demonstrations.
