Bonsai World 2011

All credit to Sussex Bonsai Society, this was a good size show, enough to fulfill the appetite of even the most discerning enthusiast.

Demonstrations were by Marc Nöelanders, John Armitage and Ken Norman and various Japanese Clubs and Societies including Japanese Tea Ceremony, Ikebana, Chinese Brush Painting and a talk on The History of Japanese Gardens, as well as ‘Seishin-Iaido’ Japanese Samurai swordsmanship and Aikdo. Japanese gardens were created especially for the show by both four Seasons and Rhino Rock.
