Aki Matsuri is an annual festival of Japanese arts and culture, organized by the Eastside Nihon Matsuri Association on the Bellevue College Campus in Bellevue, WA. PSBA is proud to participate in Aki Matsuri with an exhibit of trees, a workshop, and the sale of some small donated bonsai. All profits from the workshop and sales go to PSBA.
PSBA's events at the Aki Matsuri Festival will take place on Saturday and Sunday Septmber 12 & 13, 2015. We need docents and help with set-up and take-down. New members are invited to docent too, as you already know more about bonsai than 98% of the visitors. Docents are needed for 2 hr shifts from 10am to 6pm on Saturday and 10am to 4:30pm on Sunday. Set-up is on Friday 9/11 starting at 2pm. Take-down starts at 4:30 on Sunday. Please contact Lynn Paietta if you wish to participate.
We will be offering a beginners workshop again this year. The cost for the workshop is $50.00 and includes the tree, pot, supplies and instruction. Workshop participants can sign up by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration will also be taken the morning of the workshop if openings are available. Find more information on the Aki Matsuri website here. Anyone wishing to donate trees or other small items to sell can contact Lynn.
Hope to see you all there!
