2022
In February Peter Warren (Saruyama Bonsai) from the UK ran an all-day workshop at Bud Garden Centre. Some participants did the whole day and others were there as observers. Peter started by doing a critique on trees - each participant could take one tree. Following this, Peter then worked on the trees that had been taken by those doing the full day and also did work on additional trees or offered advice on what to do in the future. The photos (taken by Liz Donlan) from the day have been split into three parts:

Part 1 – trees on arrival (11 photos)

2020
In January Peter Warren (Saruyama Bonsai) from the UK ran a workshop and it is hoped, subject to social distancing, to have another one later this year.

2019
The following two workshops were run by Ian Young, Bonsai Eejit, both on wiring. Ian started by giving a critique of participants Bonsai in the morning and, after lunch, we either split into small groups or worked individually on our own trees to wire them. Ian moved around the groups to assist and offer advice. These workshops really are a must-attend event!

2019 November : Workshop with Ian Young, Bonsai Eejit


2019 August : Workshop with Ian Young, Bonsai Eejit

Ian said, "Last weekend I had the pleasure of delivering a workshop in partnership with Bud Garden Centre in Bunratty. A great day in great company. A massive thank you to Ray Egan at Bud for hosting us and his assistance during the day. Bud is fast becoming the gathering place for bonsai enthusiasts in the west of Ireland. Great to work with a mix of faces and new and see such enthusiasm."
