October 2023 Meeting

Spring styling and care of Deciduous trees with Sergio Cuan 

March 11, 2023 starting at 9 a.m. at Kirkwood Presbyterian Church

NVBS is excited to welcome Sergio Cuan of M5 Bonsai Works as the guest artist at our March 11th meeting. 

Sergio will be giving a presentation to NVBS on the styling, care and

nuances of common deciduous species used for bonsai in North

America.  Sergio has a keen eye for design so his presentation is not

to be missed.  In addition, it will be an interactive presentation and

Sergio encourages questions and discussion. 

After our meeting, Sergio will be leading a BYOT (maximum of 3 trees)

workshop addressing seasonally appropriate work on your bonsais.

Bio - Sergio Cuan
Sergio is a largely self taught bonsai artist. However, he has also taken workshops with prominent bonsai masters Bill Valavanis, Mauro Stemberger and Bjorn Bjorholm which he continues to take periodically to further his own bonsai education and skills. Although he works on a variety of conifers such as Engelmann spruce, Subalpine fir and Eastern white cedar, he has developed a particular interest and passion for a wide range of deciduous species which include maples, elm and beech among many others.
