IBA Hosts Todd Schlafer’s Workshop April 1 and 2, 2017

On April 1, 2017, members of the Iowa Bonsai Association and, by gracious invitation, members of the Eastern Iowa Bonsai Association, had the privilege of working with Bonsai artist, Todd Schlafer, at the Magruder’s home.  Todd is a student of Ryan Neil’s and is from Denver, Colorado.  He collects very fine conifers from the Colorado Rockies.  IBA members had the privilege of working with Todd the previous year and came to the workshop ready to continue exciting work they began at that time.  Todd opened the workshop by telling participants that the IBA had been instrumental in his decision to make bonsai his fulltime profession.
