BONSAI EXHIBITION | 2023, OCT 28/29 | DIEPENBEEK, BELGIUM
SAVE THE DATE | This year we are organising our bonsai tree exhibition again. The trees will be ready in time, and so will we! Open for everyone, from beginner to long time professionals, admire some of our finest bonsai and discover the enchanting world of small trees.
LIJDIA CARPENTIER EXHIBITION | HONORARY MEMBER | ‘MY LIFELONG PASSION’ EXHIBITION
On March 25/26, longtime club member Lijdia Carpentier organised her bonsai exhibition, titled ‘my lifelong passion’. She showed more than 30 of her best trees, all groomed to perfection over the course of many years. It is rare you will find such a good collection of trees in one exhibition, it is truly a unique experience when these belong to the same person. Not surprisingly that Lijdia was awarded during her show with the honorary membership of Eda Uchi Kai.
The exhibition was visited by friends, family and many bonsai enthusiasts and professionals. We may have even spotted Bonsai Focus taking some pictures 😉

JAN 9 | 2023 started well with our first club meeting in which we welcomed 3 new committee members. And Alain De Wachter provided tips and tricks on how to further improve a zelkova, with the help from the zelkova from Wim Jame. Needless to say that we listened carefully.
DEC 12 | At the end of 2022, during our December club evening, we welcomed Andres Bicocca and Márcio Meruje as our special guests. Andres demonstrated his famous woodworking skills on a few trees, and shared many insights that will help us to continue to develop our trees.
