“The Evolution of Bonsai”

 

EvolutionOfBonsai

In conjunction with the Hills Shire Council’s Orange Blossom Festival.

This ancient art form is believed to have begun in China. Japan and Asia were the next lands to embrace Bonsai. Travellers after World War II introduced Bonsai to Australia and the Western world.
Bonsai also has its own evolution – from seed – nursery stock – styled bonsai-in-training – to refined and beautiful bonsai – a journey of love, care and enjoyment.

This year is the Bonsai Societies 50th Anniversary 

FRIDAY-SATURDAY-SUNDAY 18th – 20th SEPTEMBER 2015
10am – 5pm Friday & Saturday 10am – 4pm on Sunday
Adults $5 Concessions $3 Children under 12 FREE
Federation Pavillion Castle Hill Showground (entry Showground Rd)

Saturday

Sue Brennan          11am

Get ready to be entertained!
Sue not only has a vast knowledge gained over nearly 40 years as a bonsai devotee but is one of the most delightful and amusing demonstrators in the bonsai fraternity. Sue’s expertise extends to many areas and coupled with her storytelling and wit, this makes her demonstrations a sheer delight.

Dennis Barton     2pm

Dennis was only twenty when he began his bonsai journey by styling a Black Pine which still survives today. So began a lifelong romance with the art. Experience gained over many years enhances his natural ability and great sense of artistry and unique approach to styling trees.

Sunday

Chris di Nola      11am

Chris di Nola started bonsai in 1999 and currently conducts demonstrations and workshops throughout NSW and teaches at a local Bonsai Nursery on a regular basis. Well known for carving, he enjoys working on all material especially pines, junipers and collected trees.

Pham Bao Khanh Linh        1.30pm

Linh creates entire landscapes in miniature and his inspiration comes from real life and from Vietnamese culture. These combine mountain scenes, forest and water – all arranged in a shallow tray. Rocks symbolise the permanence and wonder of nature, however the shaping of the trees in a landscape is not as rigidly
defined as in individual bonsai.

 Market Place

For quality bonsai, accessories and stock from BSA members, so come along and find a bargain.

Clinic

Bring your bonsai for advice, pruning, maintenance, styling or any other problems.

Refreshments

Lunch, morning and afternoon teas will be available, so spend the whole day with us.  Tea, Coffee, Sandwiches, Cakes, Devonshire Teas etc.
