3rd Saturday Virtual Open Workshop 2-4 PM
Zoom Workshop is available this month.
It’s 2021 and we’re still sheltering in place until we can all get vaccinated, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get together virtually! We are able to ask and give advice, and although some of us stayed on for the whole two hours, some folks just dropped in for a little while. It’s a great opportunity to work on your trees and catch up with your Sei Boku friends!

April 2021: SBBK Birthday Bash wit Dave DeGroot: Beloved artist, teacher, author and demonstrator Dave DeGroot will be our very special guest for our 38th Birthday Party this year. Many of you will remember when Dave was our demonstrator at our 2013 exhibit. He was famously, the long time managing curator of the bonsai collection at Weyerhaeuser, near Seattle. He has written several articles and two comprehensive books on Bonsai Design.

Aside from his artistic talent, Dave has the rare ability to objectively critique and present ideas without raising anyone’s defenses. He has a unique perspective on the arts, coming from a music background; several visual concepts can also be described with musical ideas.
Dave will be presenting at our April meeting.
