British Shohin Association show 2014

This last weekend saw the BSA show at Willowbog Bonsai nursery.
Lots of excellent displays, critiques, workshops and demonstrations by Valentin Brose who apprenticed at Shunka en in Japan.
Anyhoo a cracking weekend was had and lots of Bespoke Bonsai stands in use.
