Bonsai Intermediates Meetings

The Bonsai Intermediate meetings are a perfect way for members who have attended the Bonsai Basics classes and have mastered beginner’s level techniques to further develop their skills and progress to the next level as a bonsai artist. Even more experienced members will benefit from the ability to study a topic in-depth and have a chance to work on their trees in a group setting. They are led by experienced club members and people who attend the class who have volunteered to study a technique and then teach it to the group. Van Jensen will assist in preparing for the class and will be run the meetings.
