2017 July Sat Workshop, Children’s Day & Grafting Masterclass

The Saturday workshop in July was bustling with activity.  In addition to working on their trees, members could also participate in the Children’s Day activities or join the Grafting Masterclass.

The Bonsai Society of Victoria organised the Children’s Day activities to introduce and share our interest in bonsai by enabling our members to work with their children and grandchildren to create a bonsai together.  Every child attending was shown how to make a bonsai with a plant and pot provided.  The wonderful bonsai created were for the children to keep and enjoy for many years to come.  Several examples of work in progress are included below.
