Workshop day with Robert.

A very good day was had by all five participants of today's workshop here with Robert Porch.
----------------------------------------------------------
Some of the trees that were worked on today.


More trees.


As Andy P was the first one here his Squamata Juniper was started first.


Robert started by removing unwanted branches.


Then Andy started to wire the rest of the branches.


After branch placement by Robert, it now looks like a tree, instead of a bush.


This Scots Pine which belongs to John G was next to be worked on.


John wired the tree.


Then Robert placed the branches, closely watched by John.


Ken's Triple trunk Chinese juniper was the next one to be treated by the master's touch.


After a light prune, Ken added a small amount of wire.


The finished Juniper, a very nicely refined tree.


Margery brought this garden center Cotoneaster to work on today.


After some guidance from Robert she wired the whole tree.


She was very pleased with the finished weeping style.


This Juniper which Brian T brought was the first of two to be styled .


Brian assisted by Boxie, or was it the other way round, wired the tree.

A closer view before work began.


After wiring and styling a nice image emerged.


After discussing this Juniper with Robert they decided which would be the best way to go with it.



So the wiring duo started again.


Robert then placed the lower branches.


The apex was then turned into Jin.


Then Robert had another tweak.


Ken's second tree, the Yew on the right, was clipped and wired.


The Yew looks much more compact now.


A great day of work and education for all,  by an excellent tutor.


Thank you once again Robert.
