August 2021 - Speaker Steve McKee

Steve McKee gave us a very informative talk while trimming his bonsai. This was interspersed with numerous stories of people he knew and how he learnt the art of bonsai.

Steve then gave a crtique of trees members had brought along.

June 2021 - Members Trees

Our first face to face meeting, socially distanced outside in the sunshine. It was an informal meeting in a member's garden where we brought along a tree with some members working on their tree. It was good to be able to chat and keep up with the news.

July 2020 - Members Trees - While In Lock-In

As our club activities have had to be cancelled due to the Corona Virus outbreak, our club members have photographed some trees as a way of maintaining some club interaction. At each monthly meeting we would have a display of members’ trees and this is a way to continue that tradition. Some trees are work in progress, and some are nearer their final design. We look forward to the time when we can meet again and resume our normal club meetings.

We had to convince one of our Northamptonshire Bonsai club members that even this precaution was only suitable when venturing outside for some seasonal bonsai work.

March 2020 - Members Workshop

Members brought along trees to work on and get advice from other members. These evenings are very informal and fun as well as being instructive on a one to one basis.

As usual, members brought along "table trees" to show (see below) where we discuss and comment on each one. Inexperienced members can learn as more experienced members explain why and how they developed their tree.
