This is great. I love the apparent camaraderie and how everyone is seemly working together. I don't have a ton of experience with bonsai get-togethers but here in the states it seems like a more restrained affair usually with a hired Bonsai guru who scurries around essentially designing everybody's trees. Burrs looks like not only diverse high quality bonsai experience but also a lot of fun.

Many thanks for the photos, chris!

Extremely gutted and SO Sorry I did not make up on Sunday as I was hoping to see and meet some of European's Bonsai Greatest Artists (in my opinion)

Due to certain circumstances it was difficult to make it to see the Burrs this time but as the saying goes there's always the next time I HOPE

Perfect weekend at Burrs

Post  Jeremy on Mon Nov 12, 2012 9:01 pm

Hi,
I knew that this year Tony had increased the number of top class artists attending as well as an increase in the lucky attendees.
This being the case, I thought, take a couple of trees, don't kill yourself trying to complete a tree, take it easy and soak in all the work and advice being given to all the other Burrs students. Enjoy the apres bonsai that is always a huge feature of the wonder of Burrs. (Especially great this year Tony, going to be very hard to match next year, but you are up to the challenge.)

Well, Tony asked each artist to select a tree and create a masterpiece right before our eyes. Enrico selected my yew. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy
Over the 2 days he asked Ofer Grunwald, great guy, one of Enrico's student to help me prep the tree. I did clean the dead wood and carve a little of the dead wood, took all of an hour and a half…. Chris T. and Morea then helped me raffia and tape the branches Enrico suggested. Well when I say helped, did would be more accurate, Chris and Morea did 99.5%, I did hand then the tools and accidently cut the raffia Chris just put on, so I was a great help. Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

Here is the tree 3 years ago. Apologies for the poor picture.



and here it is at the start of the workshop.



So I was ready to wire. Enrico on cue appeared by my side with Ofer Grunwald, great guy, and instructed Ofer Grunwald, great guy, to wire the said raffiaed and taped branches. I was very appreciative as I chatted with Ofer Grunwald, great guy, as he quickly wired the branches Enrico indicated.
Well this went on for the rest of the day, Enrico instructing Ofer Grunwald, great guy,, which branch to wire, while i stood watching and chatting about bonsai in Israel, Ofer Grunwald, great guy, is from Israel. I did say I would happily assist, but Enrico wanted it done correctly and he had probably seen the quaility of my wiring in year past. pale pale pale

So all day Enrico inputed instructions to Ofer Grunwald, great guy, and he with a smile completed them. Ofer Grunwald, great guy, much to my surprised thanked me for letting him work on my yew. Well I'm like that, give, give, give, that's me. affraid affraid affraid
