Bonsai by the Beach 20-23 April 2018

Postby SteveW » January 30th, 2018, 6:21 pm

You are invited to join members of Wauchope Bonsai Workshop Group at our fifth Bonsai by the Beach workshop weekend, to be held in the beautifully landscaped grounds of The Francis Retreat, only a five minute stroll to Rainbow Beach, just south of Port Macquarie.

Our guest demonstrators/tutors are well known and respected bonsai tutors, Shane Boyce (The Bonsai School of Tasmania) and Clinton Nesci (from The School of Bonsai). As well as conducting workshops, Shane and Clinton will each do major demonstrations, the theme of the weekend being penjing. To conclude a great weekend, on Sunday afternoon they will do a critique of the trees on display.

If you want to stay for an extra day, a penjing workshop will be held on the Monday. Shane will lead this workshop.

If you don’t wish to participate in the tutored workshops you can join the sunshine club and work on the grassy surrounds on your own trees, or finally get that grand carving project under way, or join the woodworking group making their own daizas. The choice is yours – or you could just relax and enjoy the camaraderie of your fellow bonsai enthusiasts in the great outdoors.

Closing Date for Registrations: 6 April 2018
