This spring the Bonsai Society of Portland will again honor Young Choe, internationally renowned and Japanese trained Kusamono artist.

She will lead lucky BSOP members in a hands-on workshop and will present the program at our May 26th BSOP meeting. These two events will serve as inspiration for a 3rd event – a Kusamono study group on June 15th.

First up is the workshop, to be held on Saturday, May 25, from 1pm to 4:30pm in the Milwaukie Center’s Oregon Grape Room.

Pots and plants will be available for purchase at the workshop. If you have a particular bonsai for which you would like to create a Kusamono, bring a picture and Young will help you design an accent for it.
