2015 December Saturday Styling Review & Workshop

The Bonsai Society of Victoria wishes all members and prospective members a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  We look forward to seeing you all again in January 2016.

In the lead up to Christmas, BSV members were very busy trimming, styling and improving their trees.  A wide variety of trees were being worked on and reviewed.  The styling review sessions involved lots of discussion and debate about the best styling options for that particular tree.  Members were left with options to consider for taking their trees forward.  See photos below for a selection of trees considered and in some case, a before and after view.
