Demonstration: What is a traditional Japanese bonsai display?

June 3, 2023 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Demonstration: What is a traditional Japanese bonsai display? | Sherman Library & Gardens

Join Debra Mauzy-Melitz from the Orange Empire Bonsai Society for an interactive demonstration. Debra will discuss and illustrate how a bonsai tree is displayed in either the traditional Japanese three point display or the modified two point display. Seasonality is important in the choice of the display elements and Suiseki (viewing stones) or accent plants may be displayed as a companion element to the bonsai. As well as showing examples, the audience will help Debra design a display.
