PRESENTS

SPRING SYMPOSIUM '18

SHOHIN & AZALEA BONSAI

FEATURING

WILLIAM N. VALAVANIS

 

   Bill Valavanis is one of North America's most highly regarded bonsai artists and is the only living member of the bonsai Hall of Fame. At his International Bonsai Arboretum in Rochester, NY, Bill maintains a magnificent bonsai collection, teaches bonsai, and publishes "International Bonsai", a top quality bonsai magazine. In addition to his activities in Rochester, Bill is a much sought after teacher and lecturer who is regularly featured at major bonsai gatherings all over the world. CVBS is pleased to again sponsor his appearance in Lynchburg.

  This year we will have a two part program. The morning portion will be a presentation and demonstration on shohin (very small) bonsai. This part will focus on the fundamentals of design for small bonsai. The principles discussed will be useful in all bonsai design. In the afternoon, bill will give a short lecture and demo on azalea bonsai. A full description of the afternoon program and the satsuki azalea, Momo No Haru, to be used is given in the attached flyer. With Bill's assistance, workshop participants will create and take home their own small bonsai using the Momo No Haru material. Please bring your own tools and wire for the afternoon workshop. No potting will be done. All registrants are welcome as silent observers in the afternoon workshop. An additional fee will be charged for active participants in the workshop. The presentations and workshop will be inspirational to the expert but not intimidating to the beginner. Members are encouraged to bring a tree for exhibit.

    Bill is one of the most effective and enthusiastic bonsai teachers in the world today. Don't miss this opportunity to study with him. The public is welcome at all events.  REGISTER EARLY TO ASSURE WORKSHOP PARTICIPATION. Registration fee(s) are charged to defray costs of Spring '18. All proceeds support this and other CVBS events.
