Kawa Bonsai Society is proud to bring back our Joy of Bonsai event in 2020 at our new location
with featured artist Robert Mahler. Robert is a Japanese trained bonsai master and has been in
the world of bonsai for decades. For more details on the workshops that will be offered during
this event, please read up on them below. Throughout the weekend we will also have several
demonstrations each day with local Florida artists.

Workshops and Critique


Students participating in workshops must bring their own tools but wire will be provided for those who need it.

WORKSHOP I – Shohin Shimpaku Juniper $375

Join Robert Mahler in this interactive workshop with Japanese trained Shimpaku Junipers. You will be
given your own tree and will follow along as Robert instructs and demonstrates proper techniques for
molding your Juniper in the shohin style. By the end of the workshop you will have a beautifully styled
tree and ideas on how to move forward in the years to come.

WORKSHOP II – Japanese Black Pine $295

A workshop on Japanese Black Pines with trees trained in the Japanese style from Robert
Mahler’s own nursery. You will get help with a future vision of your tree as it starts its life in
bonsai.

WORKSHOP III – Semi-Cascade Shimpaku Juniper $375

Another take on Shimpaku Junipers with an eye towards creating a lovely semi-cascade. Once
again, these Junipers were trained in the Japanese style by Robert Mahler. You will have help
with branch selection, wiring, shaping, and a plan for the future of your tree.

BONSAI CRITIQUE $25

Robert Mahler will critique each and every tree in our exhibit. He will discuss not only the
design of the specific tree and what needs improvement, but also the presentation of the display,
if the stand matches the tree, if the accent is correctly placed, if the scroll is sized properly or
right for the design.
