Our November meeting will feature David Easterbrook for a workshop focused on refinement wiring, styling and shaping of trained trees. David will begin with a small group workshop in the morning starting at 10:30am. To participate in this hands-on workshop, you must please pre-register. Send a photo of your tree to Sandy Anderson so he can advise you whether your tree is an appropriate choice for this workshop as it is aimed at trees that are already trained with features ready to be “taken to a next level”. Workshop sign-up will be limited to a group of 10 people, in order to maximize the use of David’s expertise. In the afternoon the workshop activity will be opened up to club members and guests for observation and questions as David explains or demonstrates the work at hand.
In addition, we will have Michel Villeneuve, who creates “burls” for bonsai display with us to talk to members and have an assortment of burls to sell (during lunch break and during afternoon session). Michel is a master at what he does and specializes in the making of hand-crafted bonsai stands made of some of the most beautiful burls in the world. This is a great opportunity to see in person (rather than on Internet) some of the finest display stands and purchase the perfect one for your tree! See his web site.
