Sunday, November 8th
Room 101, Casa del Prado, Balboa Park
Election of officers and annual reports from officers and chairs of standing committees.
This month Ted Matson will be doing a presentation on crepe myrtle, a tree that has a lot to offer to any bonsai collector. Ted will cover culture and care, along with some styling/design work, to show some specific techniques that apply to this species--which is a great one for our climate. He will bring along true dwarfs, some semi-dwarfs and a standard so that the club will be able to see all of the possibilities.
Ted began studying bonsai in 1979 in San Francisco and has studied with many of the leading masters in Southern California. Today he serves as a curatorial administrator of education, volunteer and communications programs for the joint bonsai collections at The Huntington. He is also an in-demand demonstrator. Ted has conducted numerous programs, as well as work-shops, at several bonsai conventions and conferences, and often appears as a headliner/featured artist for major bonsai events.
