Join us to celebrate the art, science and the people behind bonsai. The National Bonsai and Penjing Collection of Australia (NBPCA) has created a week of special events for the curious, novice and bonsai enthusiast. Throughout the week watch and learn from internationally recognised bonsai artists Marija Hajdic and Nik Rozman!
Marija from Croatia is considered to be one of the most influential bonsai artists outside of Japan. She has exhibited bonsai in multiple international exhibitions over the years and most notably, was nominated at Trophy in Belgium 2019 for the category of broad-leaved trees. She runs a professional bonsai studio ‘Meleda Bonsai’ with Sergio Luciani.
Nik from Slovenia is one of Europe’s best bonsai artists. He most recently won the award for Best European Bonsai at the 2019 ‘Best of’ 20 years Trophy. Through NikArt Bonsai Studio, he offers workshops, courses and presentations around the world. After getting his first bonsai when he was 10 years old, and multiple awards later, he is currently the president of the Slovenian bonsai club, Slovenian EBA delegate and international presenter.
