June TWIG and upcoming events

Many club members are looking forward to the upcoming Montreal Trip to David Easterbrook’s & Montreal Gardens. Others are anticipating Frank Mihalic Workshops at PFM Bonsai, July 14-15, and a July 29 field trip to NE Bonsai and Royal Gardens.

Jake DeSilva’s ongoing $10 Monday night workshops at PFM Bonsai offer an incredibly affordable opportunity to work one-on-one with Jake in small sessions. Jake apprenticed in Japan and China for many years learning techniques that produced some of the best shohin from Mr. Masumi and  Mr. Urushibata, directors of the Japan National Small Bonsai Guild of Nurserymen. Though shohin is his specialty, his knowledge can be applied to all sizes of bonsai. Contact Pauline to sign up.

Not done yet. The Club’s August 26 Annual Picnic and open workshop will welcome David Easterbrook and he will bring trees. Sept 29-30, David Knittle will host a double event at PFM Bonsai: Build a Tokonoma / Sharpening Bonsai Tools—a double-exciting opportunity to score twice. And there’s more to come through fall with field trips, shohin and mame workshops. Download the June TWIG here.
