Vince Owyoung has been growing, designing and styling bonsai trees for more than 50 years. Over that time, he has developed his own creative skills and talents in transforming simple plants into works of living art. In addition to leading workshops at various area clubs and at California Shohin Society seminars, he is also a member of four Northern California bonsai clubs.
Mother Lode Bonsai Club’s free public presentation will be conducted by Owyoung on Saturday, January 5 at the San Andreas Central Library, 1299 Gold Hunter Road (off Mountain Ranch Road) in San Andreas. His demonstration that immediately follows the 9:00 a.m. monthly meeting will be on a Juniper prostrata, which will be raffled afterwards.
In addition, club mentors will hold a hands-on workshop. There is no charge but participants must provide their own soil, pots, tools and a table covering. It is an opportunity for assistance with repotting and developing bonsai trees.
Regardless of levels of experience, all are invited to learn more about this popular hobby. Mother Lode Bonsai Club members come from Amador, Calaveras and Tuolumne counties, as well as the central valley.
