North East Lincs Bonsai Society
Join Our Club!
North East Lincolnshire Bonsai Society was formed in 1995 to promote the art of bonsai culture. Membership is open to absolutely anyone of any age, from anywhere within reasonable travelling distance of Grimsby and North East Lincolnshire.
We are a very friendly, welcoming and informal group and new members are always welcome, regardless of their level of knowledge or competence.
Meetings are held on the last Friday of every month (excluding December, which is the second Friday ) and may include visits by guest speakers, demonstrations by bonsai professionals and general workshops. Our workshops cater for all levels of experience, from the absolute novice to the more advanced, providing advice on maintenance and improvement of trees, as well as basic and more advanced techniques used in bonsai styling.
Club membership has its benefits… we operate a club shop, stocking bonsai sundries such as soils, tools and wire at reasonable costs and members get 10% discount at several local garden centres.
Our Bonsai Society regularly enjoys visits from bonsai professionals, such as John Hanby and Corin Tomlinson, as well as from bonsai potters, Steve Kitchman of ‘China Mist’ and Tony Remington. In 2019 we hosted demonstrations and full days workshops with Ramon Hamers and Harry Harrington. In 2020 we will have Graham Potter from Kaizen Bonsai providing a club demonstration and a full day workshop for club members. Also John Armitage will be providing a demonstration and full-days workshop.
Next meeting February 28th 2020
This will be a tuition night where people bring trees to work on and/or get some help and guidance about how best to develop their trees .
