Today's workshop was a very hot one, not only because Terry was not there, but because the weather was very kind to us.Also there were eight participants taking part, so as I result I was seen with beads of sweat running from my forehead, something not often seen, I can tell you.
Because the gate was still shut when I arrived I noticed
the slowly vanishing Willowbog Bonsai. Getting lost in the trees.
Because I arrived a little early I had time to get some snaps of the nursery.
Great job Jean !!!!!!!
Today's Tokenoma. I said it was hot in there.
Most people here for the start of the workshop.
Just one late comer.
Now for some of the trees that were worked on.
A Maple that was defoliated.
David working on a Cotoneaster.
More trees belonging to new boy Greg.
A couple of Junipers.
This one had some wire added and given a basic styling.
After the work.
I also helped Brian with this nice Hemlock, by showing him how to create more pads from the large ones that were already there.
Don't let the photo fool anyone, I did the left side for him to copy on the right side.
One for the future, a large Cotoneaster, which needs to be fed heavily to strengthen the branches, then some serious carving work will be done at a later date.
Finally today, that Hinoki returned, Brian needs a bigger car as all the branches had to be put back in place after the journey.
Another busy but successful day's workshop once again.
