Due to unforeseen circumstances, our scheduled November meeting demonstrator, Harry Harrington, will be unable to attend.

Instead, DIBK will be holding a Black Pine presentation and workshop led by Allan Sugimura. Now is the time of year to get some maintenance and styling work done on Pines, so bring in your tools and Black Pines to get styling advice or to work on. We will also have a limited number of Black Pine seedlings to try your hand at bending and styling.

Allan Sugimura has been practicing bonsai for over 20 years. He specializes in Japanese Black Pine, and has hundreds of trees in various stages of growth.

Allan has studied with Jim Tatsukawa, Mel Ikeda, Leila Kusumi, and Bonsai Master Kenji Miyata.
