Workshops, demonstrations, lectures and other festivities

Workshops and demonstrations will feature a wide variety of quality, mostly collected, material. Lectures will also focus on collected material and on modern American potters.

Attendees will be transported to a festive reception by the National Bonsai Foundation, with cocktails and dinner enjoyed while admiring the National Collection and the NBF Container Exhibition. The John Naka Prizes will be awarded at the reception and The 3rd Annual Juried Bonsai Pot Exhibition will follow a call for entries to all American ceramicists, featuring both traditional and novel pot designs.


The vendor hall will be well stocked with collected trees and handmade pots as well as tools, stands, and related items. Onsite shipping will be available.
