Immerse yourself in the art of combining both living and dead plant parts in a unique display. Lecturer Bjorn Bjorholm uses ancient deadwood from the Rocky Mountains and native Rocky Mountain living plant material to create a unique bonsai composition on stage. The bonsai display will speak to the struggles of plants in harsh environments and the art that can spring from death in the face of these environmental factors.

He’s a bonsai artist and instructor who spent six years as an apprentice under Master Keiichi Fujikawa at Kouka-en bonsai nursery in Osaka, Japan before receiving certification as a bonsai professional by the Nippon Bonsai Association.
