with Geoffrey Holmes

Internationally renowned bonsai artist, Geoffrey Holmes will conduct a bonsai workshop at Wistariahurst Museum on Saturday, April 5 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for first-time bonsai participants or for those returning with trees they already have. Holmes is the owner of Bonsai Berkshire and Holmes Fine Furniture in Sheffield, MA and has worked with some of the best bonsai artists from around the world. He grows and maintains a collection of at least 100 bonsai in all stages of development. By incorporating the love of bonsai with his extensive knowledge of furniture making, his artistry comes full circle when he creates each of his stands and slabs. Carefully selecting all of the materials he uses within his work, he creates a beautiful part of what will be a complete bonsai composition.On April 5, Holmes will be assisted at the Bonsai Workshop by Doug Taylor, President of The Bonsai Society of Greater Springfield.
