Building Community Through The Art Of Bonsai
Our monthly club meetings excluding December (currently being held via Zoom) are held on the 4th Wednesday of each month, from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
When we can meet in person, our location is at the San Mateo Garden Center, 605 Parkside Way, San Mateo, CA right off the Alameda de las Pulgas, in Beresford Park.
3rd Saturday Virtual Open Workshop 2-4 PM
Zoom Workshop is available this month for members only. See your ‘Snippet’ newsletter for current access information.
It’s 2021 and while all wait to be fully vaccinated, that doesn’t mean we can’t get together virtually via Zoom! This still gives us a space to gather, ask questions, get advice, and just share life. The forum is open and flexible. Some of us stay 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!
July 28, 2021 – Zoom Meeting
July 28th at 7:00PM—
This month’s club zoom meeting guest is Adam Jones, coming to us from the other side of the world – Japan. He will be conducting a presentation about “The Life of an American Bonsai Professional in Japan.”
After completing University degrees in The Fine Arts and Education in the United States, Adam Jones developed his cultural appreciation and world knowledge by spending a number of years teaching English in various countries throughout Asia. During those years he fell in love with the Japanese culture, particularly bonsai. After completing a five-year apprenticeship at one of the most renowned bonsai gardens in Japan, Mansei-En, located in the Omiya Bonsai Village, outside of Tokyo, Adam received certification as a bonsai professional from the Nippon Bonsai Association.
Luckily for Sei Boku Kai’s club members, Adam will virtually transport us to his adopted country of Japan. All aboard!
