2015 February Workshop

With some welcome rain on a drizzly evening, BSV members enjoyed the opportunity to work on a wide variety of tree.  Styling options as always were much discussed as trees were designed and refined.  Hopefully there weren’t too many rash cuts that were later regretted.

Photos of trees on display are included below.

2015 February Saturday Styling Review

After a rather damp start to Saturday, a large group of BSV members met at the Main Hall for the Saturday Styling/Workshop meeting.  With the move to the Main Hall, members had plenty of space to work on their trees.  A number of trees were reviewed and a selection of these are included below.
