The Return of Young Choe

Young ChoeSome MHBS club members were lucky enough to create a kusamomo last year under the guiding hand of Young Choe. If you weren’t among them, or even if you were, you’ve got another chance. Young returns on Sunday, June 9, for an all-day workshop beginning at  9:00 AM, prior to the monthly MHBS club meeting at noon. In the morning we will create calligraphy, and in the afternoon we will again build a kusamono with Young Choe.

The all-day workshop is only $35 and a few spots remain. Register with Pauline at pfm bonsai. Our last Young Choe event was sold out so don’t delay. Bring tools and a deepish bonsai container for your kusamono. Everything else is provided. Don’t forget something for the pot luck lunch.

On the domestic front in July, MHBS will host guest artist Young Choe and a presentation on bonsai accents, and the club will visit Martin Schmalenberg’s Garden and Nursery. August 25th is a one-day MHBS club show at Proctors Theatre in Schenectady, open to all, and a great time to view bonsai and ask questions. In September many club members will head to the National Bonsai Exhibition in Rochester, highly recommended. And in October, we’ll create some bonsai rock plantings.
