Next meeting: August 7th – Andrew Sellman joins us

Come and enjoy a free workshop with Andrew Sellman from 9am at the next meeting. After lunch Andrew will make a presentation and demonstration.

Since beginning his bonsai journey 16 years ago, Andrew travelled extensively in Japan viewing bonsai gardens, exhibitions and participating in 3 separate 21⁄2 week intensive study periods. Firstly under Keichi Fujikawa and Bjorn Bjornholm, then Noboichi Uruahibata and finally Koji Hiramatsu. These intensive study periods entailed 11 hr days wiring and styling different varieties of trees, learning horticulture practices specific to bonsai varieties, bonsai display and day to day nursery work.
