ok, last Saturday was the Bearstead show and for most of the day it was a fine day and the stand was well attended by all ages, some that showed an interest in attending the club at the next meeting. Then about 2:30 pm the heavens opened in a really bad way and the crowd of approx 2000 + Made a beeline for the local pubs, never to be seen again, it all stopped raining for 4:30 when we packed up and headed home, all in all a good day was had.
ok, so i am now halfway into my pottery course at Aylsford Priory and inspiration on pots is high, I’m doing mainly Shohin, mame and accent pots at the moment but I’m sure i will progress onto some bigger ones, have a look and tell me what you think, good or bad, they still need firing and glazing but its a start and I’m sure club members will be interested.
June was a standard club night sorting out problem trees, giving advise and getting on with the normal jobs within the bonsai world, de-leafing, touching up and top dressing, also lots of conversations and plans for the forthcoming Bearstead Show on the 25th of June when members will be displaying there trees for all to see, so make sure if your in the area that you pop along and have a look and a chat the the experts that will be on sight. I’m also going to publish a few pics of the june meeting and the trees that members came in with.
see you at the show.
so whats been happening over the last few months — well most of the meeting have been regular club meetings but we have had two workshops —
1.Root over rock workshop with the fab Simon Temblett
2.Sort out your worst tree evening with our resident expert Dean
both nights were really well attended and were really good nights and you will find a few pics of the evenings to see how it went.
Where to i start, well its now been a few months since the new committee started at the society and we have been struggling a little with the running of it, and we still need a chair person by the way. now we are just starting to get a grip and one of the things we have neglected is this blog !, well thats about to change, i will now be putting regular posts and information on the site regarding all aspects of the society as it was before and this will be a mirror site for what i also put on Facebook along with the other members.
so, please stay with us and we will try our best to get it back to the way it was and pass on to you all the info and news that we can
Check out MBS updated Programme for 2016.
It now includes Bearsted Fete.
Come and join the fete with a bonsai twist 🙂
After a very successful AGM a new committee was elected and they will soon be taking the helm and shaping the programme for next year.
I would like to thank everyone for their support over my last 11 years on the committee in various roles and its with a heavy heart I say goodbye to focus on my pots at Stone Monkey Ceramics and other things.
I am sure the club will carry on being successful and grow from strength to strength under its new leadership.
All the best and thanks
