The Bonsai Society of Victoria has recently launched an initiative to help its new members develop basic skills in bonsai. Beginner sessions are conducted at the Monday Workshop meetings listed on the right hand side of this blog. Approximately five sessions are held each year and will cover a range of topics such as tools, wiring, potting, styling, suitable tree types, etc. If you are interested in these sessions, please come along to the Monday Workshop sessions and join in. New members are welcome and should approach the Society for further information – see email address above or come to the monthly meeting nights and ask to see the Membership Secretary.
