Join us this month on Tuesday, April 24th to meet a new face on the bonsai scene. In 2016, Tyler Sherrod finished a five year apprenticeship in Japan, so this is an exciting opportunity to meet a very talented, young bonsai artist.

During his apprenticeship, he was responsible for refining both deciduous and conifer bonsai and preparing them for exhibit in the Kokufu-ten, Taikan-ten and Sakufu-ten, the three premier bonsai shows in the world. Several of the trees Tyler worked on received top awards.
