Featuring Shohin Master Daisaku Nomoto from Japan, the Winter Shohin School includes panel discussions, lectures, group exercises, critiques, demos and workshops designed to maximize your understanding of shohin bonsai display and development. Saturday will focus on the displaying shohin bonsai, while Sunday will focus on the creation and maitenence of shohin bonsai. Participants should bring their own display shohin (if you have any) for the group exhibit exercise, and bring their own shohin development projects (if you have any) to use in the group workshop. If you don't have any display or development shohin, our shohin marketplace will have plenty of great options to choose from.
