Event co-chairs Linda Breeden and Doug Bradley have been busy collecting workshop trees and plan to offer a number of workshops for beginners and advanced students. Special emphasis will be on shohin and collected material. There will also be special programs on viewing stones and antique pots. The Pacific Northwest Bonsai Clubs Association (PNBCA) includes clubs from British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington. Its purpose is to share information among member organizations. PNBCA annual conventions draw attendees from the Pacific Northwest as well as international registrants. Bonsai enthusiasts benefit from exceptional workshops and critiques by local and international guest artists and cameo artists. Conventions are a great way to share skills, stories and friendship with many accomplished and aspiring bonsai artists.
