Greetings to everyone. We have a special event lined up for the club this year. Bonsai artist Bjorn Bjorholm will be coming to spend a day with the Bonsai Society of the Carolinas on September 1, 2013.
Bjorn Bjorholm is the owner of Bjorvala Bonsai Studio and apprentice of contemporary Japanese bonsai Master Keiichi Fujikawa. Bjorn has been working at Mr. Fujikawa?s nursery, Kouka-en (located in Ikeda City just north of Osaka) since 2008, and he is currently based out of Kyoto, Japan. Bjorn?s experiences working with Mr. Fujikawa have undoubtedly shaped his approach to bonsai and furthered his never ceasing desire to improve the quality of western bonsai art. He will be visiting the US, and we are lucky enough to have him here to work with us for the day. Check out his website at Also, chek out his utube videos at

Bjorn will be doing a demonstration in the morning, and a bring your own tree workshop in the afternoon. The demo material will be auctioned off at the next club auction. We are looking for a demo tree for the morning event. If anyone has any prebonsai material that would make a specimen quality bonsai then please bring to the august 24th meeting so we can choose what trees we would like to present Bjorn to work with. Our budget for the tree is $200.00. Demonstration will start at 9am and end at 12.
Silent observer fee for demo is $10.00
The afternoon will consist of a bring your own tree workshop. Bring as many trees as you can work on in the time frame. The workshop will start at 1pm after lunch and continue until 5. The cost of the workshop is $65.00 for members and $95.00 for non members. Silent observer fee is $10.00.

Demo and Workshop will be held at The Bonsai Learning Center located at 142 Hidden Harbor Road, Mooresville, NC 28117. Parking is available at the top of the driveway alongside cul-de-sac. The Learning Center will be opening at 8, so get here in time to grab a spot.

Any questions, call Brad Russell at 704-361-9707 or Email at

See everyone Saturday at the meeting.
