This week, we’ve been designing displays for our upcoming winter show. Setting trees up in this way really makes you take note of the good points, but also the areas for improvement. Starting with a 6ft table each (the keener eyes amongst you will observe the tables pictured are just over 5ft) dependant on the size of tree balancing the space can be tricky, therefore it is a good idea to do a trial run to see what works, and what doesn’t. Accompanying items can vary in quantity and size as well as type, these could be companion trees, accents, scrolls, rocks/suiseki, bronzes or anything else that could make a compelling display. The conversations that ensue on these nights are always good fun.
