East Van Bonsai’s next meeting is Monday April 23rd.
621 Kingsway, Vancouver. 7-9pm.
The monthly meetings are drop-in socials. Bring your own trees, tools and supplies, or just your questions. We do not currently have supplies or soil for sale. Donations are always welcome! Minors must be accompanied by an adult.
What’s happening this month at the meeting? We are pleased to be hosting our first demo & workshop! The air-layer demo will be hosted by EVB member Peter, who will be demonstrating this technique on a landscape tree. Watch and learn how it’s done and leave with the knowledge and understanding to create your own air-layers at home. Turn faulty bonsai into great bonsai. Create bonsai from otherwise un-appealing nursery stock. Create bonsai from ordinary trees on your property, and so on. Many fine Japanese bonsai began as air-layers.
Assistance will be given for those who wish to create their own air-layer. Those looking to do their own layer must bring a tree and a sharp knife(box cutter). Items provided are plastic for the layer bags, cling wrap to secure them tightly, moss, wire and root hormone. Please consider making a small donation if you plan to create a layer and use the materials.
