About Fort Wayne Bonsai Club
The Fort Wayne Bonsai Club strives to cultivate knowledge and bonsai artistic talent, to encourage the use of multiple species in the art of bonsai, and to teach good horticultural and bonsai artistic techniques. We create public awareness and appreciation for bonsai and inspire members of all ability levels. We provide workshops by experienced bonsai practitioners that promote hands-on learning. We see bonsai as a timeless art form that requires patience. Like our trees, we believe that our members deserve patience and attention.
I've read books, watched videos and practiced on my own before joining. I should have joined FWBC sooner!
