Top-class bonsai artists

One of the best features of the Winter Silhouette Bonsai Exhibition is that there will be bonsai demonstrations for you to enjoy. It won’t only be about you walking through rows and rows of stands with trees admiring them while whispering. 

Here are the planned demonstrations for the weekend:

  • Saturday (3 Dec)
    • 10:00 to 12:00: William Valavanis
    • 13:00 to 15:00: Tyler Sherrod
    • 17:30: Bonsai Auction
  • Sunday (4 Dec)
    • 8:30 to 10:00: William Valavanis
    • 10:00 to 15:00: Open viewing
    • 11:00 to 13:00: Rodney Clemons

Stunning location

Since it’s the 10th showing of the Winter Silhouette Bonsai Exhibition, you’ll have a beautiful location for the event. The bonsais will be located in an atrium of four floors where the walls are lined with marble. While the demonstrations will take place in a central location for all to see, you’ll be able to explore all the floors, some of which will hold the banquet tables.

Saturday banquet

If you want to stay for the banquet on Saturday evening, there’s a fee of $45 per person to cover the cost of the meals. There will be an Asian station with select Asian foods, plus you can make your way over to an Italian station if that’s more your style. After your main meal, you’ll want to head over to the desert station, and feel free to taste some of the non-alcoholic beverages on offer.

All the meal details are available on the website for the Winter Silhouette Bonsai Exhibition. Just look on the left-hand side towards the lower half of the page for the food options you’ll have. The reservation list is full at the moment, but you can still complete the form at the bottom if you want to be added to the waiting list for cancellations.

Shaun has two passions in life that combine into an extravagant show on Bonsai Alchemist. The one is for writing and the second bonsais. He’s been writing fantasy and horror novels since 2000, while also creating online content since 2015. He’s involved with writing for films and games. Finally, he’s also the owner of a book publishing company.

He received his first bonsai as a gift in 2009 and has been growing several species in his quiet home in South Africa. He prefers propagating new life instead of buying bonsais at the store. His son and daughter share his love for nature, while his wife stares on at her introverted hermit husband.
