This weekend sees a few lucky members join Tony Tickle deep in the Lancashire countryside!
The weekend features:
Enrico Savini -a rising star in the Italian and European Bonsai Scene, "the quality of his work is breathtaking in one so young"
Hans van Meer-Back by popular demand after his triumph at Burrs November 2006, Hans was one of the headline artists at this years Gingko Awards.
Unfortunately (for me) I can't join you this time (due to 'family' commitments) but I'm sure I can bend someones ear (Les?) to review and capture the essence* of the weekend.
(*lets hope its not too strong a smell !!??!! -probably depends on whether the Parsnip soup is on the menu!!)

New members are always welcome, just come along to one of our monthly meetings at the RAFA club. You can even 'try us out' for a few months before you decide on joining as an official member. The meetings are informal (there's a bar!) and the club members are (mostly) friendly, approachable and happy to pass on guidance and information to anybody interested in bonsai- whatever your level of experience.
