Due to ongoing concerns for the well-being of our members events through November have been canceled. Our program of virtual events continues: on September 6 at 1:30 PM we welcome one of the most prominent bonsai minds in the country, David De Groot. David is Curator Emeritus of the Pacific Bonsai Museum in Federal Way, Washington, United States, where he served as managing curator for 25 years. He is an award-winning designer and author, who has been studying and practicing bonsai since 1972.

The topic for David's talk is Bonsai Analysis - Design Improvement. It begins with "Before and After" slides, followed by a discussion of design and potting options, using sketches as appropriate, for five to six established bonsai of different species (black pine, Chinese elm, azaleas, bald cypress,etc.).


Creations from our members

are now available HERE!

We will keep swapping trees on a weekly basis as new submissions come in. Keep sending!
