Michigan All-State Bonsai Show

Join bonsai artists, aficionados, and admirers from across the Midwest to see stunning bonsai on display throughout the Atrium and Huizenga Grand Room. Visit the sales area for a great selection of specialty tools, pots, wire and bonsai trees. Have the experts help you find the tree that fits your taste, experience level and growing environment. Be sure to join us on Zoom or Facebook Live to watch free virtual demonstrations from 2-3:30PM each day. During these virtual demonstrations, this year’s guest artist, Bjorn Bjorholm, will demonstrate repotting, pruning, wiring, and other styling technique followed by live Q&A sessions. Bjorn is the owner of Eisei-en, a premier bonsai garden, nursery and school located in the outskirts of Nashville, TN. He was an apprentice under Master Keiichi Fujikawa at Kouka-en bonsai nursery in Osaka, Japan and continued as an artist-in-residence for three years after his apprenticeship – becoming the first foreign-born working bonsai professional in Japan. Bjorn will also be teaching a virtual “Bring Your Own Tree” workshop on Sunday to help bonsai artists style and refine their trees.  Additional workshops, designed for all skill levels are available during the weekend.  Register early - they fill up quickly!
