FOR THE NEW MEMBERS:
What is a "Dig In The Dirt" workshop?
It is our club workshop day where
members can bring their trees with questions for discussion, and/or
work on them while someone is there to help, OR just to observe and
What is meant by "work on them" is styling suggestions, trimming,
wiring, pot selection, potting, re-potting (yes, it is different from
potting) and any bonsai related questions.
SUGGESTION For All Members:
Schedule yourself a little quiet time to sit & study
your tree so you will have an idea of what you want it to look like
before arriving at the workshop.
If you have no idea, that's what your club members are there for...to
help you get started.
Even if you do not have a need to wire, pot, repot, create
or style one of your plants into a tree, there is a lot to learn by
observing & ask questions at each and every workshop. We are
trying new ideas at the workshops. If you have suggestions or
questions, please contact an officer and let them know.
