What ‘They’ say about Burrs
“I learned more at BURRS in 2 days than I have from reading any book on Bonsai. The enthusiasm and knowledge of those attending was incredible. The quality of material worked on was top class. I’d recommend the event to anyone serious about bonsai.
BURRS is about friendship, meeting fellow enthusiasts, top class material, world class artists, bucketloads of knowledge and advice, good food and a few drams of whisky to wash it all down.
Paul Burke ‘Scotland’
“A big thank you from the two southerners, who braved it in Bandit country for a couple of days, Fantastic is the only word that I can think of to describe an outstanding weekend of Bonsai. As I commented on the IBC thread “If Carlsberg did Bonsai Workshops they would not even get close to a Burrs weekend”. Please please pencil me in for the next November workshop”
Andy (Stone Monkey) Pearson ‘London’
“As always, Tony and Carolyn have done a top notch job of bringing together like minded people from many different places to share in this fantastic event. As I am still quite new to bonsai, I felt that Mario was extremely patient with me as I tried to prep my tree and he obviously has a great passion to teach others… I found him to be absolutely inspirational.
It was also great to see many familiar faces and to meet many new ones – after the organisation, it’s the people that make the Burrs event what it is for me and that is very special.”
Matt Addie ‘Cheshire’
It was good to meet the new people and renew friendships from earlier years
Pavel and Mario worked very hard all weekend, even Lee did a bit of styling!!!Thanks to everyone for a great weekend(especially Carolyn for the food) See you all next year”
“What a fantastic weekend it was..It was really nice meeting Steve, Chris Thomas, Jerry, Bob and everyone after a long time… a BIG thank you to Pavel for transforming my Taxus. Working with Pavel was a dream come true. I’m already looking forward to next BURRS. Thanks, Tony and everyone else for making it a great weekend. “
