Carving Bonsai Masterclass and Workshop

Post  Tony on Fri Mar 08, 2013 11:08 am

Natural aged deadwood on Junipers, Yews and Pines, and with deciduous trees hollows, sharis and age are characters many bonsai artists wish to feature in their bonsai. Unless you pay top dollar for your material you are only left with one option! You must create the deadwood.

Creating ‘natural’ looking deadwood is an art in itself. Too many tool marks and the bonsai look false and amateurish, over elaborate and decorative and the tree stretches the bounds of good taste so getting the balance right takes skill and expertise.

3/4 August 2013 and the first time in the UK a bonsai carving master class will take place. The workshop takes place in a purpose built self contained training centre as used for the amazing annual Burrs Workshops Nr Manchester UK. With everything on one level, it’s fully catered with bunkhouse accommodation included. Your weekend includes full access to all the artists, evening presentations, all meals from Saturday Lunch to Sunday Lunch. A Barbecue and specially commissioned bonsai entertainment on Saturday Evening!

Three of the Europe’s most respected Bonsai Artists: Tony Tickle, Will Baddeley and Paul Finch specialising in the creation of beautiful deadwood will be demonstrate their skills and teach you so that you can go on to create your own masterpieces.

This event is supported by Ryuga Bonsai Tools who will be providing Premium Quality Bonsai tools for participant to use.
