Japan days

Long time no speak. How have you been?
Wirral Bonsai Society is looking to keep in a good shape on the blog!!

Here is a thing that I would like let you know about.
We are holding 2 Japanese events on 18th, Aug at Wallasey Central Library and on 13th, Oct at Birkenhead Central Library.
Both events are held 10.00-12.30 and 14.00-16.00. There is a break inbetween. The scale would be almost the same as the last year's.

That would be great if we could have your works or workshops about Bonsai at the event.
Would you guys be interested in taking part in those event?

Whether or not you could take part in the event doesn't have to be final at this point.
So please just let me know if  you are interested in it.

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.
