Club Meeting – Bonsai Master Kathy Shaner / Deciduous Bonsai

June 18, 2021 @ 7:00 pm 9:30 pm

Bonsai Master Kathy Shaner will talk about deciduous work that can be done at this time of year. Folks who did not get to pruning or bud work earlier in the season, you may have a second opportunity. Kathy will discuss timing, what to do and advantages.

For those who don’t know, Kathy has been involved in bonsai for over thirty years. She trained in Japan as an apprentice of Bonsai Master Yasuo Mitsuya and became the first woman and non-Japanese citizen to certify as a professional bonsai artist and instructor by the Nippon Bonsai Association. 

Kathy’s approach to bonsai is to avoid making “cookie cutter” trees that follow a formula. If you’ve never seen Kathy in action, trust me you won’t want to miss out on her lively wit, her wide-ranging knowledge of the technical aspects of bonsai, and her incredible artistic talent.
