2016 March Saturday Styling Review and Workshop

BSV Members attending the Workshop were a little fewer than normal due to the long weekend.  However, discussion and debate over styling options produced some excellent outcomes and several of these are illustrated below in the before and after photos.

Members are reminded that the April Saturday Workshop has been replaced with a bus tour visiting the Native Bonsai Show, the Royal Botanical Gardens and a nursery.  If you are planning to attend, please book your place.  Details in the Newsletter.
