Craig Coussins started BONSAI>BONSAI>BONSAI in 1974 and spent the next 20 years studying under the UK's leading Bonsai artist. During this tiME he travelled to the home of the late John Yoshio Naka in Los Angeles to learn from this Bonsai Master who not only was a great teacher but always gave generously of his time to Craig. John also visited Craig in Scotland.

He began teaching in June 1978 when he founded the Scottish Bonsai Association and soon after in 1983 he was a founder committee member of the UK Federation of Bonsai Societies, FOBBS.
