Bay Area Shohin Society was founded in 1980. Terry Ward, Bill Sullivan, the Plantings and other Bonsai Clubs' members, formed BAS with the intention of having a monthly workshop-type meeting. It was to share ideas and information about Shohin as well as to work on their Shohin in a congenial atmosphere.

Since that time, enthusiasm for Shohin continues to grow around the world. The steadily increasing attendance at the biannual Shohin seminar at Santa Nella attests to this growth.
